#3 of 38 in Sightseeing in Chengdu
Historic Walking Area Landmark
Walking around Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty takes you back to a Qing-period leisure district for local imperial officers. With a number of old-fashioned teahouses, the three well-preserved parallel streets offer a traditional laid-back retreat from the busy city. Sample some Sichuan cuisine in a folk-style restaurant, visit boutique hotels, explore traditional courtyards, or simply watch locals play games outside their shops. Street performances of traditional music happen regularly along a 400 m (1,312 ft) wall made of bricks from different dynastic periods. A visit to Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chengdu vacation planner to plot your vacation.

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.
