Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
Temple House is a boutique hotel on the rear side of Tai Koo Li that manages to look very traditional on the outside with a mix of classic and modern style on the inside. When we arrived, the super efficient host whisked us through the lobby and down the stairs into Tivano, their house Italian...

Lvrou Huoshao restaurant  草莽驴肉火烧
Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
Donkey meat is something we run into infrequently in Chengdu, but it still pops up on high-end menus and tables as a cold sliced meat, and in less formal settings in bowls of rice noodles. We were recently paying a long overdue visit to the Galleria Mall near the south train station and noticed a...

Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
MORE dropped in to sample the fares at Rumba, a stylish spot which showcases dishes from Latin American regions. The menu is a mini culinary geography lesson with little flags beside several of the dishes to indicate the country of origin. The dishes that dominate are from Mexico, Peru, Cuba and...

Baker & Spice
Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
We were going in circles around Taikoo Li for a while before finding our destination, a newly opened cafe and restaurant called Baker & Spice (in the East Plaza corner near Zara). The inviting room is a good place to settle down with a cup of fresh ground coffee and a baked treat. The first...

The new Perennial Mall at Wanjiawan (opened just over a month when we visited) brings a welcome oasis of retail civilization in the midst of all the new residential communities that are beginning to fill up between the west side of the city and Wenjiang. We dropped in to check out the spacious...

Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
The Alleys near Tonghuimen is one of Chengdu's top central tourist destinations, with many traditional restored buildings housing upscale restaurants, art displays, and souvenir shops. Too many visitors miss out on the cool neighborhoods nearby, however. We were wandering around Kuixinglou...

UID Collective Café
Susan Johnson (more chengdu)
Even with the help of a seasoned taxi driver it took us a while to find U37 idea loft, in a nondescript residential area full of walk-up apartments just off the east first ring. (Going east from the first ring, hang a right just past the walking bridge over Shuinian He Street, it’s before the...

Luodai  落带
Touristic (Dieter)
In my opinion Luodai is more a "Touristic" than an "Old" town. Well, for Chinese touristic goes hand in hand with shopping and "热闹". Not really an old town, lot's of different shops, good to buy small souvenirs and stroll for an afternoon. Better avoid the crowds during the weekend or holidays.

Maison Mode  美美力诚百货
Susan Johnson (More chengdu)
It's difficult to imagine a place like Maison Mode in Chengdu a few short years ago, when the most common street styles in Chengdu were either dull and utilitarian or cute and sparkly. Now, the clothing of the young and well-heeled shows an awareness of international clothing trends and brands....

He Ri Jun Hot Springs  何日君温泉水疗
Pete Sweeney (more chengdu)
Chengdu, while beautiful, gets cold come winter. My favorite place to warm up is a traditional Chinese bath, and He Ri Jun Hot Springs is convenient, cheap, and comprehensive. The concept of the Chinese spa can be daunting for those who don't know what to expect. First, a Chinese bath is...
