When you're on the flight to the city of Chengdu perhaps you'll ask one of the passengers sitting beside you: "How long does it take to Chengdu now?" He'll answer: "When you hear the loud sound of playing mahjong, it means you're getting close." Indeed, playing mahjong is a very popular pastime for Chengdu people, but as a provincial capital of Sichuan Province, China, it consists of various specialties like tea culture (which is quite akin to Hangzhou in eastern China), the ever famous and taste-teasing Sichuan spicy cuisine, belles and the leisurely life of its people. If you read the simple-sketched map of Chengdu you may find it looks like a roughly-knitted net for which there are many ring roads inside the city, very interesting. Chengdu is also the home of lovely giant pandas and the city of cotton-rose hibiscus.
