A Gathering Place of Foreign Travellers in Chengdu

Authors: Home in Chengdu


Like tumbleweeds seeking a place to take roots, finding a niche to live in an unfamiliar city is not only taking a shelter, but also having a spiritual settle-down.
When Ted, a local boy of Chengdu was browsing the website of CouchSurfing, in November 2012, he found a Finnish girl trying to find a place to live in Chengdu. What impressed him most was that this Finnish girl also loves the American football, just as he does. For this reason, Ted made a quick decision that he would help to provide her with accommodation.
From then on, Ted began sharing his home with couchsurfers.
Ted's home is located near Chengdu East Railway Station, so the transportation is very convenient. Such an advantage makes Ted's home very attractive to couchsurfers. There was a time when 14 couchsurfers shared the small living room at most. Seeing sleeping bags spread in the small living room, Ted realized that the room's potential "inclusiveness" is huge.
So far, Ted has received dozens of couchsurfer groups. According to Ted, couchsurfing is more than providing free accommodation for travellers; instead, he will chat, play and go around with them and prepare dishes of Chengdu flavor for them, as Ted wants to have deep communications with his contemporaries who share the same ideas with him.
