Helpful Chengdu Travel Tips

Traditional Teahouses
With over a thousand years of history, Chinese tea culture is perhaps best exemplified by the bamboo chairs and wooden tables found in the hundreds of tea houses throughout Chengdu, with jasmine tea being served as the local staple. As early as the Western Han period, both tea trade and tea culture were very prosperous in Sichuan with Chengdu as the starting point of the Southern Silk Road. Sichuan Teahouse has long been the centers of neighbourhood social life, they are where people gossiped, played cards, watched opera performances, had haircuts, even had their ear wax removed! Today, with EYT guide help, you still can find the crowded traditional teahouses in Chengdu.

Sichuan Opera Booking
Chengdu is the home of Sichuan Opera,which dates back more than 250 years ago. It's nothing like western opera; many performances feature slapstick, glass-shattering songs, men dressed as women,gymnastics and even fire-breathing. One highlight is face-changing in which performers swap masks, seemly by magic. It has been one of the popular night show in Chengdu, performances run nightly from 8pm to 9:30pm regularly; you'd better book in advance if you like, EYT TOURS can help you book the show in a discounted price.
