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.

  • So commercial here
  • 有許多比較有特色的古建築,各式特色小吃,我嚐過這裡的傷心涼粉,味道還可以。裡面也有很多小商店,可以買到許多便宜的東西或紀念品,就是裡市區有點遠。
  • 只是修建過的古街,店鋪大同小異,唯一值得推薦的是可品嘗傷心涼粉與開心冰粉
  • 許多建物,別有特色,古趣盎然。
  • 人多 商業化 沒有古鎮的味道
