Explore the heart of Chengdu

This warm and welcoming city has a small-town spirit unique to other places you will have visited in China but when you’re only visiting for a couple of days it can be tricky to pinpoint. This excursion with our resident guide takes you straight into the heart of Chengdu culture so you can truly discover this remarkable city.

Tea is a quintessential part of Chinese society and teahouses make the perfect place for some people-watching. Join us for a cup of your favourite blend as we invite you to sit shoulder to shoulder with the locals and see for yourself the appeal of this much-loved past time. Away from the organised town centre, we’ll show you the real chaos that goes on behind the scenes at a hidden market, before arriving at Chengdu’s star attraction – the Chengdu Hot Pot.

No trip to this laid-back city would be complete without enjoying this famous traditional feast. The spices alone will leave a lasting memory for most people and those less accustomed to this level of heat often leave with hilarious stories drenched in perspiration. If you’re not feeling too adventurous we can always request a less spicy container in the main hotpot and order a few extra cold beers.

If you want to mingle with the locals and discover the real flavours this fascinating city has to offer, you won’t want to miss this experience.
