Chengdu

Wenshufang street & Wenshu Monastery | Wuhou Temple | Kuanzhai Alley

Wenshufang street & Wenshu Monastery (文殊院)

The widest pedestrian street in Chengdu, where you can sample delicious Sichuan snacks, enjoy various forms of folk art, and browse vast selections of tea, jade, traditional clothing and more. After wandering this old-style street, you'll head to the nearby Wenshu Monastery. The gates of this large Buddhist monastery, built during the Sui Dynasty, are over 1,000 years old. Embrace the remnants of ancient Buddhist culture, sample some of the best vegetarian food in Chengdu, and find your Zen in an environment designed for doing just that.

Wuhou Temple (武侯祠)

The main shrine to Sichuan's ancient Shu Kingdom and the heroes that made it legendary during the Three Kingdoms period, Wuhou Temple was first built to house Shu Emperor Liu Bei's remains in 221. During the Ming Dynasty, Liu Bei's subjects' remains were also housed here, most notably those of Zhuge Liang.

Kuanzhai Alley (宽窄巷子)

Continue meandering through the streets of Chengdu at Kuanzhai Alley, a pedestrian area made up of Qing Dynasty hutongs, a style of house most commonly associated with Beijing, converted into an array of bars, shops, cafes and hotels. The area actually consists of three alleyways that run parallel to each other. Take the time to appreciate the convergence of modern conveniences and comforts with an old-style of northern Chinese architecture.
