Located in the city center’s Renmin Park, and built in 1920, this is the perfect place to experience the“Old Chengdu”that is famed for its waterways, greenery and open-air tea drinking culture. In fact, it is widely recognized that the custom of drinking tea, now so deeply ingrained in Chinese lifestyle, originated in this city. The bamboo chairs and busy, chatty atmosphere will transport you to a bygone era. Well worth a visit on a relatively pollution-free day. Open 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM.
