- Landmark luxury hotel situated in the vibrant city of Chengdu within the Sichuan Province.
- Iconic high rise build offering magnificent views overlooking the glowing Chengdu cityscape and glistening Jinjiang River.
- Spacious guestrooms and suites display an elegant, chic décor with modern furnishings and amenities.
- Three delectable restaurants serve some of the finest international and traditional cuisine in the city.

Dive into Chengdu's subculture and witness the city's latest urban craze of fixed-gear cycling. Hip young cyclists whizz about the city on these popular bikes, recognised by their simple design and bright colours.
We loved Cambodia and learned a lot from the warm and engaged guides, Sothi and Huang. We were also surprised at how much we liked Beijing. Eric too was a fantastic guide and made us think of China and its place in the world differently.

Best time to be there
While there are differences in the climate according to the region in China, it is best to travel in Spring and Autumn when the weather is not too hot nor freezing cold. But we also pay attention to festival periods and special occasions.
