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.
