    Food in Sichuan is (or was) amazing - if you love hot and spicy that is. For things to do : take two days and head up to Emei Shan, a temple area high at the top of a mountain. The top itself is nothing much, but the experience to get there quite memorable. over 9 years ago

    Don't miss 担担面 (dan dan noodles), 麻婆豆腐 (ma po doufu) etc. I loved the noodle place on Renmin Bei Lu Yi Duan 人民北路一段, across from the Chengdu Sports Center. You can find a lot of Chengdu eating recommendations on eatingasia.typepad.com, just look at their "chengdu" category. over 8 years ago

    Don't miss the pandas! It's their home, and there's a very large breeding centre/research base you can visit, you can even pay to cuddle a baby...www.dreams-travel.com is a good site which offers accommodation and tours. over 8 years ago

    I am not too sure if you have already gone, but I just got back from China 2 weeks ago. I spent 2 day in Chengdu and must say the best experience I had was being at the Chengdu research base of giant panda breeding. I was lucky enough to spend an hour doing volunteer stuff (cleaning cages and feeding the pandas) and then for 1300 Yuan, I got my picture taken with a 7 month old panda! Totally worth it for me. I also checked out the Jinsha Site Museum. This is all about what ancient Chinese people lived (in huts).

    In the evenings you can walk along the river front and see people seething up portable record players and dance. In a square like place across from the hotel I stayed at, there was exercise like activities. In both of these activities we had the local people grabbing us to joint in. over 8 years ago
