Chengdu People Park
You can't miss the tea culture when you study abroad in Chengdu, China. Let G-MEO introduce you to a place where local people go for tea tasting and relaxing: Chengdu People’s Park/Teahouse.
Chengdu People's Park is a historical place in the center of Chengdu City. Originally built in 1911, Chengdu People’s Park was the first public park in the center of Chengdu City. The park was first set up for citizens to make a living, and it was also the locality of many historical events. For example, Xinhai Square was built to memorize the Sichuan Railway Project Crisis of May 1911. In addition, the site was the venue for the labor movements, student movements, and mass meetings in the first half of the 20th century. After several expansions, the present People's Park is a developed park integrating gardening, culture, tea-tasting, leisure, and entertainment.
Things you can’t miss out on:
- Goldfish Island and Teahouse: drink tea like the locals and experience traditional ear cleaning.
