Panda Base:

Built in 1987, covers an area of 106 hectares, the Chengdu Panda Base imitates the real wild ecological environment of pandas. The base creates a perfect ecological environment for the living and breeding of pandas. It now breeds 83 pandas. The base includes scientific research buildings, open research laboratories, animal hospitals, animal houses, panda playgrounds, a panda museum, and a comprehensive service department. Here, green bamboo and trees, birds, and flowers combined with man-made sights constitute the living and breeding place for pandas.

Du Fu Thatched Cottage:

The greatest poet in the Tang dynasty-- Du Fu lived in Chengdu for years. In the west suburbs of the city, he built for himself a thatched hut and wrote a lot of poems here. Inside the thatched cottage: gardens are quiet; streams are winding; bridges and pavilions are interwoven; trees reach for the sky; plum trees and bamboos stand side by side; and classical architectural styles bring you a strong cultural atmosphere.

Temple of Marquis Wuhou'

Wuhou Memorial Temple is dedicated to Zhuge Liang; the Martial Marquis of Shu in the Three Kingdoms. Memorial temples were erected in many places after his death include a famous one in Chendu.The date of its establishment is unclear, only that it was built next to the temple of Liu Bei, the emperor of Shu. The current temple was rebuilt in 1672, surrounded by old cypresses and classical red walls, the temple evokes nostalgia. The main body of the temple is divided into five sections, the Gate, the second Gate, the Hall of Liu Bei, the corridor, and the Hall of Zhuge Liang, all of which run south to north. Inside, clay sculptures of Shu Emperor and ministers stand together, making them a special feature. Zhuge Liang's great personality, dedicated service to others, outstanding intelligence places him above all emperors, generals, and ministers in history. A visit to the temple illuminates his status among the Chinese people.

Jinli Street:

Chengdu is a city brimming with a strong leisurely ambience. Jinli Street, located to the east of the Wuhou Memorial Temple of Chengdu (the most famous Three Kingdoms period (220 - 280) relic museum in China) is particularly representative of this city. It is recorded that as early as the Qin Dynasty (221 BC - 206 BC), Jinli Street was the most famous place for baldachin - a rich, ornate cloth. And it was one of the busiest commercial streets during the Shu Kingdom (221-263). Hence, it is known as 'First Street of the Shu Kingdom'. In order to reclaim the street's prosperity of former days, it was restored with contributions from the Wuhou Memorial Temple and was opened to public in October of 2004. Since then, visitors from all over China and abroad gather in this ancient street to relax, admire the traditional-style buildings, and taste some local snacks
