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. 💚

Daocheng Adin Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
90% of tourists to Daocheng Yading miss this spot at Yangmaiyong
90% of ordinary tourists miss this excellent spot at Yangmaiyong, so I have a suggestion for those who plan to visit Daocheng Yading. From Chonggu Meadow to Luorong Pasture, if you don't want to walk, you can buy a round-trip electric car for 70. Buy it! But don't sit all the way to the end! You can get on and off at each stop of the electric car! Don't worry about not having a seat on the car, there will be staff to arrange and dispatch. Most tourists buy electric cars to go directly to the long line, but actually the scenery along the electric car is good, colorful forests, roads and towering Yangmaiyong. Especially the section of road from Shengshui Lake Station to Yangmaiyong Station is an excellent spot to view Yangmaiyong. Yangmaiyong seen from this angle is particularly imposing and the morning light is particularly suitable. The angle and light are better than at Luorong Pasture. Although Yangmaiyong is closer at Luorong Pasture and Gongga Lake, it does not have the visual impact of Shengshui Lake Station. It is particularly imposing, white and towering straight into the sky. I immediately asked the electric car driver to stop and get off. So my important strategy is: the electric car can stop at each station to play. Especially the most beautiful between Shengshui Lake and Yangmaiyong! This way, it feels worth the price of the electric car. For those who can't climb the long line, there are more relaxed ways to play. If you are not very interested in alpine lakes and have friends with high anti, it is not recommended to climb the two lakes. Walking to Gongga Lake is the most beautiful, and there is only about two kilometers of flat road between Luorong Pasture and Gongga Lake. In addition, you can play more with the electric car in the morning, and you must have morning light at each stop! Daocheng Yading is really beautiful, but high-altitude hiking should be done according to one's ability. If you can't hike, you can fully appreciate its beauty. As a 5A scenic spot, it must have ways to play suitable for different groups!

Daocheng Aden, the last Shangri-La!
Stunning and spectacular scenic areas.
The mountain scene is so picturesque that is excellent for photography.
These 3 snow-capped peaks sit in a triangle formation with valleys, crystal clear rivers, glacier-fed lakes and abundant wildlife between them.
Everything looks so perfect and we even get to see the Pearl Sea.
Witness the magic of nature with your own eyes
The Sichuan-Tibet line is picturesque and worth a visit in a lifetime.
Winding up to Daocheng Yading Nature Reserve
Daocheng Yading Nature Reserve located in Sichuan province, China is also known as the "Last Shangrila". It is a holy land to the Tibetan people. A road trip is recommended instead of flying in which will allow you to acclimatise to the rising altitude gradually as altitude sickness may beset some. Whilst winding up, you will get to pass by local villages and take in the picturesque sights.

Places you must visit in your lifetime
If you have been to three, you can show off in front of your friends; if you can go to more than half, then you are the king of the travel industry.

九寨沟 (JiuZhaiGou) Mythical Valley
The trip to JiuZhaiGou Scenic and Historic Interest Area was a magical and unforgettable experience. We started off from the city of 成都 (Chengdu) where we took an 8 hour bus ride from the 新南门车站 (New South Gate Bus Station). On the way there, we were treated to a mix of Chinese and Tibetian landscape with deep valleys and Buddhist temples adorning the side of the road.
When we got to the scenic area, clear blue skys and imposong snow-capped mountains greeted us. The alpine scent of towering evergreens mingles with the crisp mountain air enveloping the senses. The sight of pure, glacial streams and crystal clear lakes reflecting the natural landscape paints a picturesque masterpiece. Making for a truly unforgettable trip.
I reccomend you allocate at least 2 days to explore the region as you can also visit 黄龙 (HuangLong) situated nearby which boasts of colorful travertine pools. There are also many small places of interest nearby that you may want to allocated an additional day to visiting. You should also account for the time spent travelling by bus as the ride will take up a full day (2 days total to and fro). If you wish to save time, flying directly to the airport at JiuZhaiGou is an option you can take.
Lastly, I wish you safe travels and I hope you enjoy your trip to the Mysterious Valley JiuZhaiGou!
Jinli Ancient Street Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Beautiful Ancient Street in Chengdu 🇨🇳
This is Jinli Street and it is a shopping area in Chengdu where in you can find all Chengdu's souviners. We come here not just for shopping but also enjoy the tea houses. This place is just bustling and crowded so be aware before coming to this place but it so vibrant and colorful with ancient/ traditional vibe into it. Address: No. 231 Wuhouci Street, Wuhou District. Nearest Subway stop: Line 3 Gaoshengquai stop and it is around 600 meters walk from the exit. Enjoy your visit ! #mytripvlog #tripblazers #shopping #chinatravel #chengdu #street
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. Thus, when I was in Chengdu China, I took the chance to go Jinli Ancient Street. Like most ancient streets, there were many nice food and also got the beautiful historical buildings and streets. The highlight for me was that I got to attend a show featuring tea pouring, masks change art etc.
Ancient Street of Jinli@Chengdu, Sichuan
Address - No.231, Wuhouci Street, Wuhou District, Chengdu, Sichuan, China. PC: 610041

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 😀
