leisureful life style
Tea shop ,maybe represents the true life style of the people in Chengdu. I can see tea shop where I've been. It seemed that everyone have nothing more important than enjoying a cup of a warm tea and chatting with friends. You can try them. There are varieties of snacks in Chengdu. most of them are spicy,but delicious. For example, hotpot(different from which in Chongqing), Fuqi Feipian, Lai rice glue ball,Dandan Mian(a kind of noodles),etc.
Located just 10km away from downtown Chengdu, the Chengdu Panda Breeding Research Center has been created to imitate the pandas' natural habitat in order that they have a the best possible chances for breeding and survival. Pandas are an endangered species as there are only about 1000 of them in China of which 80% are distributed in Sichuan province.
At this center, you can see cute and cuddly pandas of all sizes happily munching on bamboo or frolicking with each other in their enclosures. They love to sleep and most of them were sleeping when I was there.
The privilege of holding a baby panda and having a photo taken with it will set you back RMB800!
Visit the Leshan Giant Buddha
The Leshan Giant Buddha is approx two and a half hours drive from Leshan, and it is well worth the effort!
The Leshan Giant Buddha was carved into the side of a mountain where 3 rivers meet. Its main purpose was to look over the rapids in the river and stop the deaths of so many boat people during the monsoon season.
This is the largest seated Buddha in the world and sits at over 70 meters in height
