The Chinese people voted Chengdu as the nation’s second most liveable city in 2006.
The traditional wooden architecture and tree-wrapped streets are being rapidly given up for glassy skylines, new apartment complexes and flashing-neon-malls. Amidst its slipshod attitude and glimpses of ‘old’ Chengdu, it’s hard to believe that this is China’s fifth-most populous city.
Beyond this rapidly growing city, you can find some of China’s most beautiful natural treasures. Special attractions include the Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, which has built a more natural environment than the typical zoo for China’s natural treasure.

Summers might be hot and humid and winters cold but Shanghai never sleeps.
