Chengdu’s MUST visit - Kuanzhai alley
One of the best things you can do in Chengdu is to visit this ancient street. Kuanzhai alley is one of my favorites of the city. There are lots of tea-houses, coffee shops and restaurants with delicious food. 🥘 Also many shops with souvenirs of local landmarks, also a nice decorated bookstore 📚 Every corner of the Kuanzhai alley is a nice spot for taking pictures 📸 I’ve been here once in winter and another time in summer. Both seasons were perfect for this place. 💚

Jinli Ancient Street
Whenever I go China, I like to visit the ancient street as it allows us to experience the local culture. The street is mixed with ancient and modern atmosphere.

Authentic Chengdu Culture on Jinli Ancient Street
From the moment we entered 231 Wuhouci Avenue, Wuhou, #chengdu, we could feel the Chengdu spirit. My daughters tried on Xifu #costumes and #makeup used in the #pekingopera for only 200 yuan. We got 5 photos in the price. It was amazing to see the finished product 👏😀.
Highlight - The street was lively and calming at the same time . It wasn't too much to make us tired, but just enough to keep us entertained. There were lots of shops work traditional goods and food items to make us enjoy the true Chengdu spirit. The pineapple 🍍 rice 🍚 was my favorite treat. I'll try to make it when I go home.
#hotelstay is convenient. I saw two hotels just outside the gate: The #Jinlan hotel and the #Ruixin hotel.
Price: It's free to entire, but take money to add to your experience. We bought traditional musical instruments and lots of food, and they weren't expensive. You might also want to do the Xifu costume or watch the peking opera with #facechanging act.
Rating - 💯💪. Add it to your bucket 🪣 list 😀
Ma lu Bian Bian Spicy Hot Pot ( Zhi Min Road Zhi Ying Dian ) Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
🥵 Time to sweat with this spicy Hot pot
When visit Chendu with your friends make sure to try some local restaurants!
When the hungry strives a on a hot summer night, text you friend and tell them to come and meet you at this cozy restaurant in Chendu, you won’t regret it!
First you get to pick your base, we went with mushroom and spicy. then you walk over to the fridge and pick all kinds of sticks you would like. Then you put the sticks in to the pot and just wait. While you waiting for you meal to boil you can walk over to the dipping station and make you dipping sauce. My favorite is spicy chilly with some peanuts and garlic!
After a few Minutes of boiling the meat and vegetables will be done and ready to eat- it’s now the party will start. Just remember to not eat to much! Too belly will hurt otherwise I’m afraid.
when the dinner is over you go and weigh the sticks. on our dinner tonight we had 370 sticks! Pretty good job! But my friends record is still 1236 sticks by only 4 people !! Try to beat that !
How can I not eat the spicy food on the side of the road? This time I came to eat a family of Zhimin Road. The style of the whole store is very market-like. It is the style of the 70s. Every table is square, then equipped with a small bench, a small gas stove, very The taste of childhood. The price is also very affordable, a sign of five cents, as well as crispy meat, ice powder, glutinous rice and other snacks, is a shop that can not forget the taste of eating.
Come to Chengdu, how can we not eat spicy food, first of all, let's first come to the science and what is spicy, and I will eat Chengdu people who want to eat vegetables and want to eat string, what should I do? The answer is to eat!
So Mala Tang is the shop that both sell.
We have arrived in order not to queue at 5:00 pm, and only the last two vacancies are left. The business is really hot. There are a lot of stools at the door, and the look is the rhythm of long queues every day.
Shop decoration is really a childhood style: stone paving tiles, old-fashioned food shop, aluminum pot enamel bowl, back to childhood in minutes.
What is the recommendation for the little brother?
Answer: It's delicious! Strings and take it yourself!
specialties like brain flowers and a thousand layers of belly, a bowl of bowls full of red, but actually not very spicy, but delicious! Strings challenge the old pot of Chengdu butter, after all, we are pepper lovers! This pot is delicious at the bottom, and it has no bitterness for a long time, with a spicy taste.
string is really very good, the first time I ate the rabbit waist, the taste is tenderer than the pig's waist, a bit of a fun! In addition, a variety of beef is also recommended ~ vegetables must be tribute, green bamboo shoots and bracts. Vegetables must be tribute, green bamboo shoots and scallions. After eating the spicy hot freezer, there are all kinds of cold drinks.
Mala Tang The sense of ritual is the moment when the bamboo stick is thrown into the bucket. Be sure to go early, or queue up for a few hours to get it!
: Mala Tang
address: No. 48, Zhimin Road
In Chengdu, if you want to eat the taste of childhood, you should go to "the road is spicy".
The commissary of the roadside, the grocery store, the wholesale and retail, the sugar and sugar, and the first love of the tears and the past of the five flavors, all came up. Everyone sat around the small square table to eat spicy food, and the small chair was so short that the big men couldnt stand the waist, but that was the side of the road we used to be. Garlic, scallions, scallions, dried sea pepper noodles, and Weiyi soy milk are standard ingredients for eating spicy food. In the summer, there must be ice powder that you cant eat.
The bottom of the pot is divided into two types: traditional pot and classic pot. We will definitely order the bottom of the traditional butter pot. The taste of the mellow lip is what we want. The thin signatures are all things that I like to eat when I was young. Vegetables and meat dishes are not put together, they are put together, and then they are put down one by one and placed in the dried sea pepper noodles dish infused with the soup at the bottom of the pot. I really hope that no matter how long, this taste is still there, this feeling is also!

Chunxi Road Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Ultimate Shopping 🛒 🛍️ on Chunxi Road
Highlight - Wish I had gone there when I first started shopping last week. So many shopping options and the prices are sooo reasonable! It's great that there are designer stores like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Fendi, Chanel etc., but also regular stores with huge sales. Fashionable winter coats that I got in other cities for 5,000+ yuan were available for great deals! I felt like a kid in a candy store! I bought lots of clothes for my daughter and myself. We're definitely going back to do a double take! 😎😃😀
Location- This is one place you can't miss. In Didi, it's literally called Chunxi Road Pedestrian Street on Chunxi Road Jinjiang.
Ambience - As usual, if you're at a mall in Chengdu, you'll get more than just stores; Chengdu is an experience so there will be people dancing at the front of a store to lure you in, or people singing and playing the guitar 🎸🎶 at a corner to keep the crowd entertained.
Rating - Go there! Trust me, it will be the highlight of your trip. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐👏

Chengdu’s Chunxi Lu
Chunxi Lu and Taikoo Li in Chengdu has all the luxurious brand shops, hotels and cars and night life there is beautiful. It has one the famous shopping buildings IFS towers where the panda which is Chengdu’s loved animal hanging from the top. A view from the top of IFS building is calming and serene.
I recommend going to the rooftop of IFS during the Chinese holidays where you get to have a lively feel of music and other performances
Goodwood 良木缘咖啡西餐 ~ Chengdu成都
About 400m from Chunxi Road metro station.
The restaurant is quite big with a beautiful outside area to take pictures. This was in May. Our table was right next to the outside area and the feeling was very relaxing.
The food was really delicious! We got a set meal for two and it was perfect! The cake at the end serve as my birthday cake and we made do with a phone candle for show. I would definitely come back again.
Chunxi road. This is the city center and at the same time walking street. If Jinli street represented the old ancient style, Chunxi road in its turn reflects modern urban tone dominating in our life. This contrast makes visiting both places even more interesting.
Chunxi is a big cluster of skyscrapers, malls, cafes, bars and countless small shops. I liked my walking there.
