Whirlwind tour of Chengdu

Arti arrives in the spicy city of Chengdu to a few rainy days! He stayed in the downtown business area, with lots of modern stores and buildings.

The main attraction in Chengdu is the panda sanctuary. Lots of pandas live at the reserve, where they are protected.

In addition to big pandas, red pandas live at the panda reserve. They were feisty and quick!

In the afternoon, Arti visited the people's park, located in the middle of the city. This was a monument to railroad workers who died.

There was a nice pond in the middle of the park, with extremely loud cicadas and little boats to rent.

On the way back to the hotel from the park, Arti met a big statue of Mao near a public square.
