Somerset Riverview Chengdu
Few big Chinese cities have managed to preserve its culture amidst the diversification and gentrification that comes with a booming economy quite like the way Chengdu has.
Known for its cuisine, Chengdu is home to the world-famous “mala” hot pot, a steamboat soup base spiked with mouth-numbingly spicy Sichuan peppercorns. On weekends, locals take part in another ritual and leisurely sip tea in teahouses. A game of mahjong by the Fu Nan River often follows, which is a four-player Chinese tile game. Join in for a truly authentic Chengdu experience.
Somerset Riverview Chengdu is located in the heart of it all, sitting on the bank of the Jinjiang River among lush greenery, scenic waterways, local teahouses and watering holes. The location of the serviced residence is a short stroll from Tianfu Square where the main commercial and business district lies. From there, you will find the Science and Technology Museum, Sichuan Library and Chengdu Sports Centre.
For travellers looking for activities steeped in local culture, the Wu Hou Temple and Jinli Old Street are all a mere 15-minute drive away and can be easily accessed through the metro. The closest stations are Jinjiang and Huaxiba, both a 5-minute walk away.
Of course, a trip to Chengdu is incomplete without a visit to the cuddly bamboo-loving panda bears at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Make sure to take a break from the city to visit these iconic animals.
At the end of a fruitful adventure, retire to the serviced residence to rejuvenate yourself for a second day of exploration.
