Chengdu is probably best known for the Giant Panda's which inhabit the northwest provinces of Sichuan and they are a major draw for the visitors who delight in seeing these adorable creatures in their natural habitat. However, delve under the surface and you will find a city with a history stretching back over two thousand years which is reflected in the numerous temples dotted around the city. Modern buildings run shoulders with traditional wooden buildings while residents enjoy strolls around tree lined avenues and are justifiably proud of their fiery local cuisine.



Our experts can tailor-make the perfect holiday to suit your individual requirements, however, if you need inspiration or a starting point, below are some of our suggested trips and experiences:
