Chengdu Transportation

location of chengdu in ChinaCompared with other major Chinese cities, Chengdu is simpler to navigate on foot. The heart and exact center of the city is Tianfu Square. Three ring roads then form concentric circles around Tianfu Square. Renmin Road bisects the ring roads on a north/south axis. To walk from Tianfu Square to the southern part of the first ring road takes about 25-30 minutes. Most important sites are within the second ring road and many bars, clubs, and restaurants are concentrated in the south end of the city between the first and second ring roads. Unfortunately, Chengdu's street names change practically every kilometer, so it is important to familiarize yourself with landmarks such as Tianfu Square, the train stations, and the ring roads.
