Chengdu: Our accommodation

Adventure Planning

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.

No too warm and not too cold. 🙂 We throughly enjoyed our experience in China, remember to keep in mind of the entrance fees whilst traveling in china, as it will add up!
