Our founder hails from Chengdu, which makes this 4-day, 3-night itinerary even more special. This trip will take you through Chengdu, Leshan, and the nearby countryside to see and eat everything that makes Chengdu an UNESCO city of Gastronomy.

From street snacks to a village meal in the countryside, this is guaranteed to be the best food you (or anyone) can find in and around Chengdu. You’ll also visit a timeless Sichuan tea village where you’ll pick, roast and make tea by hand. The Chengdu region grows several varieties of high quality tea, which is why it has become central to daily life in Sichuan.

The nature of this trip is relaxed. There are no long van rides and no strenuous activities. Since it is only 4 days, the itinerary is quite full but there will be time to get off your feet. All of our trips are all-inclusive and do not have any shopping stops. The only thing not included is your transportation to/from Chengdu, and any extra shopping or activities during your free time.

  • Visit the town of Leshan and its famous Giant Buddha carved into a 71 meter riverside cliff where three local rivers try the best local eats.
