Built at about the end of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and formerly called Shaocheng, Renmin Park is the most famous of the city's green spaces, and once housed six teahouses.
There are even "ear scrapers" who – equipped with a handful of small gadgets such as metal tweezers and tongs – will clean out earwax for 20 yuan.
Another eye-catching act is kung fu tea-pouring, a skill lying somewhere between martial arts and dance.

It's not often that you can call a Chinese megacity 'leafy', but Chengdu is exactly that: spacious, plenty of green spaces and voted 2nd most liveable city in China.Take a bicycle down hibiscus lined streets to visit the serene Wenshu temple and try tasty guango hot pot, a local favourite.
