Exploring the City
From the Giant Panda Reserve Center to attractions like the Shrine of Marquis Wu, built to honor the prime minister of the Shu Kingdom, there is much to see and do. Be prepared for everything the city has to offer by packing versatile basics.
- Always carry an umbrella. In this subtropical climate, rain is often sudden and unpredictable.
- Opt for comfort over style when choosing your shoes. You’ll be doing a lot of walking, so pack flat sandals or sneakers.
- Keep in mind that winters in Chengdu can get cold. It also sees little sunshine this time of year. Bring extra layers, boots and a waterproof down jacket if traveling during this season.
