Hey everyone!

I’ve uploaded a snippet of our Chengdu trip on YouTube so join me with me as we explore Chengdu, a city in China that’s full of charm!

We tried the famous Sweet Water Noodle, visited a lively flea market, enjoyed the mesmerizing Face Changing Opera, and admired the intricate art of Chinese traditional Sugar Painting. Get ready for an unforgettable expedition filled with pandas, cultural wonders, and delicious flavors!

Sweet Water Noodle
Sweet Water Noodle is a popular dish in Chengdu. The combination of flavors in this traditional dish is sure to delight your tastebuds. The long, soft noodles coated in a tasty sweet sauce create a delicious blend of sweetness, spiciness, and a hint of tanginess. Don’t miss the chance to try this amazing dish and experience the true flavors of Chengdu.

Flea Market
We explored one of Chengdu’s lively flea market, where we found unique antique items and souvenirs. From colorful trinkets to old ceramics and handmade crafts, the market is a great place to find something special. Bargain with the friendly local vendors and you might uncover a hidden gem that reflects Chengdu’s history and culture. The market’s lively atmosphere andย  cheerful conversations with locals will transport you to another time, making it an experience to remember.

Face Changing Opera
Prepare to be amazed by the mysterious art of Face Changing Opera, a traditional performance rooted in Sichuan’s culture. As the performers put on brightly colored masks, they quickly switch from one mask to another, expressing different emotions and characters. Each mask change adds intrigue and excitement to the show. The artists’ skill and precision as they transform their masks is truly impressive. Let yourself be captivated by this breathtaking art form that combines theater, dance, and music.

Sugar Painting
Chengdu’s artistic heritage extends to the delicate craft of Sugar Painting, a traditional Chinese folk art. Skilled artisans use sugar syrup and food coloring to create beautiful edible sculptures. It’s amazing how they shape vibrant animals, flowers, and mythical creatures just from liquid sugar. The precise craftsmanship required for this art form is impressive, as every stroke brings the sculpture to life. For a unique experience, you can even try your hand at sugar painting under the guidance of a master artist and take home your sweet creation as a special keepsake.

Chengdu, a city filled with culture, delicious food, and fascinating traditions, offers a journey like no other. Please watch and support my YouTube video above where we tried the flavors of Sweet Water Noodle, immersed ourselves in the vibrant atmosphere of the flea market, and experienced Face Changing Opera and Sugar Painting firsthand.
