Helpful Chengdu Travel Tips

The world famous breeding & research center for giant pandas was founded in the north suburbs of Chengdu. Now it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chengdu.Try to visit this base in the morning,when the pandas are most active.In order to better protect wild giant pandas, Chengdu has established nature reserves in Dujiangyan City, Chongzhou City, and Dayi County. Sichuan Wolong Giant Panda Nature Reserve, the biggest of its kind in the world, is only 130 kilometers outside Chengdu.

On January 11, 2012 six captive-bred pandas were released to a "semi-wild" environment in Dujiangyan, Chengdu. Scientists believe that success in the reintroduction project would potentially help save the endangered giant panda.

Sichuan Giant Panda sanctuaries

Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries, lie on the transitional alp-canyon belt between the Sichuan Basin and the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. It is the largest remaining continuous habitat for giant pandas and home to more than 80% of the world’s wild giant pandas. The reserves of the habitat are 100-200  km away from Chengdu.

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 or Mt. E'mei, 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 in Chengdu or Emeishan City.
