We invite expatriates who love to go spring outing and share their experiences with other people to join the group GoChengdu Gusto and take part in programs to experience the city free of charge.

Spring Outing

The Spring Outing Activity, organized by local website gochengdu.cn, is the sequel of the successful programs of last year, and will offer members more colorful activities to be held in various parts of Chengdu, such as the bike riding on the greenway in Pidu District, bonsai art appreciation in Dujiangyan City, viewing the peonies in Pengzhou City, and a lot more!

The first stop of the spring-outing will be on Mar. 16 in Pidu District in northwestern Chengdu, where the members will visit the Sandaoyan Town, which is famous for its cultural richness and the sights of rapeseed flowers, and the members will have a look of Sichuan embroidery and cormorant fishing.

Rapeseed Flowers

There is a spectacular view of a vast sea of bright yellow rapeseed flowers in full bloom in Qinggangshu Village of Sandaoyan Town.

Shu Embroidery

Sandaoyan Town has a long history of Sichuan Embroidery that is noted for creative workmanship and elaborate designs. Members will have the opportunity to have a close look of the embroidery girls working at the Sichuan Embroidery Street.

Cormorant Fishing

Members will also catch a sight of the extraordinary cormorant fishing, a traditional fishing method rarely seen today in which fishermen use trained cormorants to fish on the river.

Riding "on the cloud"
