Chengdu is the home of the Sichuan Opera, dating back over 250 years; the main highlight is the magical Changing Faces spectacle.

Sichuan Cuisine

A highlight of Chinese cuisine is definitely the food of the Sichuan province. It’s known for its pungent flavours and dishes incorporating chilli, garlic, and local Sichuan pepper which is featured heavily in their recipes. Just let your guide know how spicy you like your food!

Changing Faces

The Changing Faces performance is undoubtedly a highlight of the Sichuan Opera. The actors are dressed in elaborate costumes with colourful masks and during the show their faces will magically change, in the blink of an eye, to instantly reveal a new ‘face’.
