Chengdu: Panda Sanctuary and Opera House

Chengdu

As we wonder mindlessly through the city, We found amazing food alleys, temples, tea house and Chinese Opera house. So we picked up the tickets and rushed all the way to the otherside of the to watch the opera. It was quite and interesting experiences to see.

Tickets included a Opera show (Folk tale, finger puppet and Opera) and Tea.

As we get seated, in a dark room.. we saw a men dressed in a doctor’s suit, with a torch on his forehead. Whilst he cleans another man’s ears. This as it turns out, is common in all opera houses.

Chengdu: Our accommodation

A city famous for the Panda Sanctuary.

As we explore the city before we make our way to the Panda Sanctuary, we found Chengdu to be quite a “chill” city, people we sitting by the river side sipping tea, eating sweet potatoes, and chewing sugar cane.

Most foreigner come here as a port of entry Tibet.

Our first close encounter with a local

We thoroughly loved the hostel we stayed in as well, it was our first interaction with a ‘true local’. She worked in the hostel we live in. She was ambitious, she’s from a small village outside of Chengdu, her English was immaculate compared to the rest.  And was eager to speak to us, to practice her English.

She wanted to travel, the furthest she ever been is to Shanghai. Passports were not a commodity, let alone visas for different countries.

She reminded us how lucky we were. For the things we took for granted. The life we live. It’s valuable lessons like these, that makes our travel worthwhile.

Here’s a little snippet of our accommodation in Chengdu.
