Chengdu: 7 Budget-Friendly Tips for a Trip to the Sichuan Capital of China

I’ve been living and teaching in Xi’an, China for the past two months, so when China’s 7-day National Holiday came around, I knew I wanted to explore a new part of the country. I decided on Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province, located in the southwest of China. Why Chengdu? Aside from Beijing and Shanghai, Chengdu is equally as culturally and modernly vibrant. Within the city, the Jin and Fu Rivers cross, which allow for spectacular afternoon strolls and nighttime views. More so, many of my fellow Chinese teachers and friends told me that some of the best food in China can be found here. Lonely Planet’s China travel book even sites Chengdu as the first city in Asia to be recognized as a Unesco City of Gastronomy. For the food alone, I was hooked.
