Wanting to go some place new, learning and experiencing another culture, going on crazy adventures had always been a way of a traveler's life. But why not try something old for a change? Like traveling to an old city perhaps? Here are a few reasons why traveling to Chengdu should be a part of a traveler's travel bucket list.

Looking for a calm place filled with spicy food and warm cups of lovely teas that are absolutely a hug for the soul? Chengdu might just be perfect. China has a lot more to offer than just the basic tourists' spot such as Beijing or Shanghai - one of its biggest cities, Chengdu (the seventh biggest city in China) is a definite must. There are so many things to do and so much to see in the 2,300-year old city.

For the Museum-lovers; Chengdu's Du Fu's Thatched Cottage Museum - Du Fu one of China's greatest poets is whom the museum was built for. Some of his famous poems and some of his life stories are kept and preserved in the museum. The museum was built near Du Fu's thatched cottage.

Jinsha Site Museum - thousands of years old of Chinese relics can be found in Jinsha Site Museum; whereas they're kept, protected, preserved and exhibited. But the relics that are exhibited in the museum aren't just ordinary relics, there are some of the most treasured and most interesting Chinese relics such as - the gold mask and the Sun Bird that are more than 3000 years old are kept in the museum as well.

For the Panda-obsessing earthlings, Bifengxia Panda Base - Chengdu's research and breeding facility of giant panda bears. The base is filled with undeniably adorable pandas munching on their bamboo food.

Food and Tradition - Chengdu is the best place that serves tasty and spicy food. The city mostly serves Sichuan dishes in which people should get a taste of. Chengdu and the people of the city managed to keep their tradition of having old-fashioned structures and buildings that people don't want to miss out on. Tune in on Travelers Today for more.
