Hibiscus City

The home of giant pandas for more than two million years, Chengdu's vast human history cowers in comparison to the natural heritage of the area. On any human scale, though, Chengdu offers history in abundance, with the area first inhabited over 4,000 years ago. A number of World Heritage-listed sites show the regional importance of the city to development in the area, dating back to the time of the state of Shu, through the period of the Three Kingdoms and beyond. Along with a mass of temples, ruins, and historic districts, the city's UNESCO-protected giant panda sanctuaries represent some of the main attractions in Chengdu. Chengdu is in Sichuan. Use our China travel planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Chengdu.

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
