Towns & Cities
Chengdu is a rather large city in China's Southwest and the capital of Sichuan Province. A gateway into Tibet for some, the city itself is often the destination as visitors come to catch a glimpse of the giant pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.
Local landmarks and attractions include the Nine Eye Bridge, Jinli Pedestrian Street, and in true Chinese fashion, the spicy local food! You'll enjoy Chengdu if you're obsessed with pandas, if it's not your first visit to China, or if you're looking for a sort of "home base" to explore the incredible hidden gems of Sichuan Province.
Planning Your Cruise
As above, you're pretty much obliged to check out the pandas and eat something ridiculously spicy. Look for ways to get out of the city and to explore the wilder areas of the province.
