Chengdu is Red

Chengdu is a beautiful city in southwest of China. It is also the center of Southwest China.

When we talk about Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, we always think about spicy. People in Sichuan cannot eat without spice.

Not only spice I have an steady image that Chengdu is red.

Especially when you come to Jinli, popular street with buildings from Ming and Qing dynasty besides, you will find everywhere is red.

Jinli is in the neighbor of Wuhou Temple.

I suggest you take a taxi there because the fare is just 10 yuan.

There are of course other access routes, such as subway and bus.

If you go to Chengdu it is best to download a Chinese map vendor app.
