China Chengdu

The charming city of Chengdu, with its beautiful traditional teahouses, is the perfect place to experience China’s famed tea-drinking culture. As the capital of culinary-favourite Sichuan Province and UNESCO’s first-ever City of Gastronomy, Chengdu’s food-scene is as varied, flavoursome and spicy as you might expect. Once you’ve sated your taste buds, make sure you take a trip to the Chengdu Panda Base, a non-profit research and breeding facility for giant pandas, red pandas and other endangered species.
