Depart from your Chengdu hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and head straight to a traditional restaurant that specializes in the local delicacy of Sichuan hotpot. Take a seat at your table and regard the simmering metal pot of stock in the center; throw in your favorite ingredients, such as vegetables, meat and seafood, and create a mouth-watering mixture while chatting with your neighbors.
Suitably full, return to your vehicle and relax during the short drive to Shufeng Yayun Teahouse in Chengdu Culture Park for the Sichuan Opera. Feel your excitement heighten as an expectant hush descends upon the audience and the curtains part to revels an abundance of color and charisma. Watch Sichuan’s rich history come to life through dance and music and become engrossed by stories derived from Chinese literature and legend.
Be mesmerized by the opera’s principle acts, Rolling Light and Changing Faces, and then applaud raucously as the show reaches its dramatic conclusion. After 90 minutes of enjoyment, return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to your hotel.
