Travel Tips for Chengdu

Hot Pot!

by Willettsworld about Chongqing Jiangbei Laozao Huoguo

When people think of Chengdu, they immediately think of hotpot. Introduced from Chongqing, Chengdu hotpot has its own style ranging from simple spicy to moderate, three or four kinds of spices, as well as fish head hotpot, medical herbs hotpot, etc. If you're not into spicy food then you should avoid these restaurants like the plague. Me, I like spicy food so went to this one located along Renmin Beilu.

What they do in one of these places is bring along a choice of hot-pot - a very large bowl filled with cooking oil and tons of chillies plus a well section in the middle filled with water and other things. You then order different kinds of meat, veg and salad stuff and cook them in the hot-pot as there's a gas burner underneath it at your table. I ordered a "mandarin duck hot-pot" which came with absolutely tons of chillies and other spicy stuff. Now, I like spicy food - just ask my local Indian take-away, but this was beyond anything I had even eaten in India. I ordered some beef and salami like ham sausage and a waitress showed me what to do plus I went over and looked at what another couple were doing plus what they had ordered as I hadn't a clue as to what to do. I also ordered some cabbage, potatoes, spring onions and bean sprouts to go with the meat which were put in the middle section. The hot-pot seemed to take a long time to get heated up and all the waitresses were watching what I was doing from time-to-time. The meat started to cook and I tried to fish it out of the oil using a draining spoon but then it was really slippery to get hold off with chop-sticks, which I have fun with at the best of times. The veg was cooking quickly by this time and so when I tried to fish it out, it had all but disappeared and I was making a mess everywhere, including on myself! Can't really see the point of it instead of being a bit of fun but I suppose, for the locals, it's just a way of life. Plus it wasn't cheap either!

Interesting exhibits

There is a Chinese restaurant at the building next to the Chengdu Exhibition & Convention Centre which houses lots of traditional exhibits. You can have your meal there and enjoy the exhibits surrounding you.

A Wonderful Place in the Southwest

The Giant Panda Breeding Research Institute

The Giant Panda Breeding Research Base is the best place to see Chengdu's most famous residents. The city zoo is very depressing and best avoided but the institute 18km from the town center, houses 12 bears in good conditions.

The panda has long been associated with China, and although they are no longer given as gifts to visiting officials, China's pandas still face the huge problem of extinction. The Museum here graphically details the bears reproductive problems and there is also a large Breeding ground at the site. Researchers here recently announced that they plan to give the pandas the drug Viagra in an attempt to raise numbers. These creatures are notoriously reluctant to breed and scientists hope that by giving the pandas Viagra, they will boost the bear's sex drive and improve the chances of reproduction.

The center is located on the mountain of Futoushan in the northern suburbs of the city. Staff recommend that the best time to visit is in the morning, between 8.30 and 10am, during feeding time. Outside these hours it's likely the bears will be indulging in their favorite pastime, sleeping!

Address:Jiefang Lu
How to get there: There are three options for transport to the institute:
a) Cycle from the city. This is a nice bike ride but the 18km may be too much for the unfit!
b) A taxi should cost approximately RMB85 from Chengdu center.
c) Take a tour from the Traffic Hotel. This is a convenient option and at RMB80 (including the entrance charge) is a pretty good deal. Enquire at the hotel for more information.
Opening hours: 8am-6pm.
Cost: RMB30 to enter the complex.
