The golden roads of Chengdu
Every autumn difference streets in Chengdu turn golden, the magnificent Gingko trees turn yellow as the cold winds begin to shake their leaves turning the roads golden. There are different areas but I took these pictures right outside my community on Tianhua Road. I enjoyed walking under the trees everyday until all the yellow leaves were gone.
The leaves turn yellow late in the autumn and if being in Chengdu it’s a good option to take a look the vibrant yellow against the blue sky is beyond description.
Getting There - Century city subway station take exit C, exit and turn left on Century road towards Tianhua road 天华路-道路 成都市武侯区
Tianhua road is covered with Gingko trees so you can walk under the trees for about 800 meters.
A Well Maintened Park in Chengdu🇨🇳
This is a beautiful quaint park just right next to Qingyang Palace. When you are visiting the Qingyang Palace, for sure you won't miss this one. It is a pretty well maintained park with lush trees and grass. There is also a teahouse outisde where you can relax and chill while sipping your cup of tea. A very big park but very leisurely at the same time as you see locals do their own thing in the park like plaing mahjong and kids just playing away too. The Sichuan Opera House is just around the corner as well so coming here won't be boring as there are a lot to do and see. Entering this place is free of charge.

Tranquil Visit in a Hidden Taoist Temple!🇨🇳
This is Qingyang Palace or West Gate in Chengdu. It is a quiet temple compared to all the temples I have visited in Chengdu. From the outside, one would think that this is a tiny temple but upon entering and strolling aroung we then realized that this place is actually massive with the grounds and temples being very well kept. There are monks inside so please be mindful of your proper conduct there.
Entrance Fee: 10 rmb (double check, they might have changed this already)

A Must Visit Monastery in Chengdu🇨🇳
If you are already in Chengdu and you are done with the main attractions like Pandas and the Giant Buddha then I highly recommend this monastery. You will find peace and serenity here while you wander around the grounds of the monastery. There are a few pavillions inside where you can also observe and enter. Just a reminder that this monastry has monks in it so you might see them praying or doing their daily activities, just make sure to observe silence to respect them. The entire place is beautiful and relaxing. When you get out, there are also a lot of souviner shops and restaurants.

The Largest Building in the World!🇨🇳
We visited this building a few times already and everytime we see it and walk inside it we can't help but feel too small and swestruck! I mean look at the size of this mall, feel dizzy looking at it from the front of it. It is the largest building in the world in floor area and up to this day it still holds this title. It has a man made beach, an indoor water theme park , an intercontinental hotel, massive cinemas, shopping mall, supermarkets, ice-skating rink and so much more. It offers a variety of restaurant and cafes too so you can literally spend your day here if you want to.

All Day Brunch in Chengdu!🇨🇳
Whenever we go to Taikoo Li this is one of those restaurants that we always go as they serve delicious options of all day bruch. Their price is more expensive which is understanble because of where they are but the taste of the food makes up for it. That's why we really don't mind spending a little bit more in the restaurant. Their options of coffee here is great too. So if you are in Taikoo Li as a tourist then have a go a this restaurant. It is good! Enjoy!

High End Shopping in Chengdu🇨🇳
Taikoo Li in Chengdu is a high end outdoor shopping area but there are also lots of cafes and restaurants. You will surely love it here if you are into luxury window shopping and dining in nice restaurants. Just expect to pay more than usual. This place is where we see all of those fashionable people we see on short videos on tiktok. Whenever I come here, I always make sure that I look good because I always feel like I am underdressed. I guess people who come here tend to clothed nicely as the place screams high end. This place is really attractive to tourists too as it is near to the famous Panda Mall (IFS) .

Unexpected Hidden Gem🇨🇳
We always walked past this place so we could only admire its facade however we had been invited by firends to have some tea inside the temple and we were surpised to see how beautiful it is inside. It is nicely located in a busy shopping area but when you are inside you can still feel the tranquility that it offers to its visitors. I am just glad that the local government preserved this place despite the development and modern buildings around it.

Is this Chengdu? ! ?😍🇨🇳
Luxetown is such a vibrant, modern and western like area and a fairly new developed area in Chengdu. The architecture screams Spanish and I kid you not the music being played there is Spanish sounding as well. We spent around 3 hours here just exploring this area and enjoyed looking at the architecture of the buildings. There are places to eat and drink too so when you feel tired strolling around you can just choose a cafe where you can sit and relax while sipping on your preffered drink.

We came to Dujiangyan just by ourselves and without a tour group and it is quite easy. We really had a lovely time at the mountain especially seeing and walking through the beautiful nature. We didn't hike all the way to the top of the mountain because we weren't properly clothed and equipped. You will see the best panoramic stunning view of the surrounding forest Please be aware that there are some steep stairs so make sure that you are well equipped with a good pair of boots or shoes. You can also take the cable car to cut the hiking short.

It took so much effort and hardwork to build this and I truly appreciate it. I have nothing but admiration towards the incredible people who designed and implemented this ancient water management system!

3 Weeks in China! ✈️🇨🇳👍
#timetotravel #china #shanghai #chinatravel #xian #chengdu #guilin
With borders and visas finally back in action, it’s a great time to travel to the vast and beautiful lands of China. Filled with history, culture, scenery and incredible food to boot, spending three weeks here can disappear in the blink of an eye.
So how best to spend your time?
5 days in Shanghai (you can have a day trip to SuZhou here) - here you can see Nanjing Road, The Bund, the French concession, Jingan Temple, Xuhui district and much more
4 days in Xian - obviously the biggest sight to see is the Terracotta Warriors which will take a whole day. there is also a show at the city walls in the evening which shouldn’t be missed and food in the Muslim quarter
4 days in Chengdu - the pandas if that’s you’re kind of thing. Chengdu is a great place to chill, get lost and drink lots of craft beer! Go to the Tibetan area!
5 days in Guilin (you can have a day trip to Yangshuo here) - The lakes, the caves, the rice terraces, Yangshou and a show
I travelled with my 60+ year old dad and aunt and we took the train between cities - it’s a lot but it’s not impossible!!
Luxury Art Gallery in Chengdu 🇨🇳
Located in Luxe Lakes Eco City in Chengdu, this is a newly opened gallery in the area and the exhibition of art inside is just beautiful but they are all very expensive.

Where to go Golfing in Chengdu 🇨🇳
If you want to have fun and just want to try golfing in Chengdu then you can go to this place. We played a 9 hole par three course for about 90 minutes and it was fantatstic. My friends and I totally enjoyed it. The place is wwell maintained and we were provided clubs however you can bring your own club if you have one to reduce the expenses here. It isn't the cheapest place but it is all about what makes you happy at the end of a long week of working right? You gotta still treat yourself in a way that you will enjoy. So if golfing float your boat then go and have fun.

Weekend Getaway in Chengdu 🇨🇳
We have been to this resort about three time already we have always loved our stay there. We usually go there if we just wanted to get away from Chengdu and want to relax with decent food. We feel like always rejuvinated ever after our stay here. I mean, it has everything that will make you entertained and relaxed. It has hotsprings, KTV, archery and few more activites that you can enjoy plus it is near Mt. Qingcheng and the irrigation system. Most of the tourists come to Dujiangyan because they want to see Mt. Qingcheng and the irrigation system and I can highly recommend this resort for a great stay while in Dujiangyan. It is spacious, the interior and exterior of the hotel are just beautiful. You can easily reach Dujiangyan by bullet train which will approximately take you around 1 hour and 40 minutes. The just take a didi to the resort.
Enjoy your stay!

Clocking in for KBBQ at Pork Office, Chengdu
Pork Office 🐷🗂️☎️🗄️ - A unique concept that delivers on flavour 😍
Usually when I go to Chengdu, all I want to eat is Sichuan food, chuan chuan and hotpot or Chinese shaokao (BBQ). But this time my friend and I were craving Korean food.
We found this gem of a Korean BBQ place using the DianPing (a Chinese app) and it did not disappoint!
The decor alone is worth a visit, the owner’s attention to detail really made this an immersive experience. Not to mention all the food we ordered was cooked so well and delicious!
The only thing we found strange at first was that even though each table had an extractor fan, the meat was cooked at another table by the lovely staff. But it didn’t make any difference in the end and we didn’t leave smelling like smoke which is a plus 🤣
