What You Can Expect

Chengdu Half-Day Bike Tour

Kungfu Tea at Chengdu People's Park

Cycle through the streets of Chengdu on this half-day guided bike tour. Your friendly and informative guide will assist you in obtaining your bikes, after which you will head straight to People’s Park. After cycling past the beautiful scenery and monuments, stop to sip tea at a traditional tea house and watch the locals partaking in different activities, such as playing chess, practicing tai chi, drinking tea or playing music.

Love is in the air over at one section of the park, where parents exchange their children’s pictures and contact information, hoping to match them up in the future. Leave these cupids to their matchmaking and cycle over to Kuan-zhai Lane to enjoy the sights of older-style buildings, gardens and rows of souvenir shops and vendors lining the street.

Continue riding to the Qingyang Palace and learn from your guide about the Taoist religion’s influence on the local people. Ask your guide about the internal and external structure of the building, as well as the figures and monuments inside, and their significance to the religion itself.

Make a quick pit stop at the Song Xian Qiao antique market, where you can browse different trinkets, from carpets to chess sets and various artworks. Make sure you don’t buy more than your bike can carry! You will then ride over to the Wenshu Temple, a preserved Buddhist temple housing many precious works of art that are considered cultural relics. Your guide can give you an overview of what makes a Buddhist temple different from a Taoist temple.

After half a day of discovering the streets of Chengdu on your bike, rest your legs by taking the air-conditioned coach back to your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

My family of four (children age 13 and 10) took this tour with Lillian and would highly recommend it to others of all ages and abilities. Riding a bike in China was more enjoyable than we expected as the traffic seems to respect bikes and moves at a safe pace.
