Chengdu Tours and Travels
Capital of southern China's Sichuan province, Chengdu is largely considered the region's culinary capital with a delicious range of dishes inspired by the fiery heat and aromatic flavours of chili peppers and garlic that thrive in the surrounding fertile plains. It's also home to the ubiquitous Sichuan-style hot pot, a mouth-numbing soup of oil and spice that cuts of meat and veg are cooked in. Considered the pinnacle of culinary experiences in Sichuan, hot pot is also a social event and just one of many reasons why Chengdu has been awarded UNESCO's second City of Gastronomy Award.Read More
