    The People's Park was once called the Little City Park when it was created in 1921. It then changed its name to the People's Park in 1949. Most, if not all, cities in China have a People's Park and they're great places to go to in order to witness everyday Chinese life. When I visited people were singing karaoke, dancing, playing cards and Chinese chess (mah-jong). There were also some kind of performances going on and the whole place was buzzing and certainly not quiet even on a Monday afternoon.

    The peoples Park has many attractions and is a pleasant way to spend a lazy afternoon.

    Anne and I chose to visit a tea house that was situated around a central man made lake. The only problem being that the lake was under renovation, the water was green and all of the birdlife had left the area! Not to be put off, we sat down to enjoy our tea, which arrived in a plastic thermos that looked as though it had been used by the first emperor.

    We still persevered and sat there sipping our tea when men began to approach us and offer us a massage. After much haggling we decided on a price of 25 Yuan for 30 minutes. This was a truly memorable experience as the massage was one of the best I have ever had…and the cheapest! (25 Yuan = approx US$3.85)

    Renmin Gongyuan (People's Park)

    The park is about a 10 minute walk west of "Mao", the people's park is typical of Chengdu'sn open spaces. There's a small lake at the southern end of the park where, in the warmer months you can enjoy cruising around in one of the boats for rent.

    Check out the small children's fun fair built in a converted air raid shelter.

    It's a great place to relax and watch the locals at play, enjoying the simple pleasures in life. It also has one of Chengdu's most famous tea houses.

    The park is quite huge and apparently I missed a huge chunk of it......There are lots of tree's and gardens and little streams. It's a great greenspace in the heart of Chengdu. Supposedly there is supposed to be a huge wacky museum/ funhouse... but we didn't see it. We did see all the kiddie rides.
