Stop At: Qingyang Palace (Green Ram Temple), Sec.2 Western First circle Street, Qingyang District, Chengdu 610072 China
Chengdu is a dynamic city – some people say it is the fastest growing city in the world! Skyscrapers and shopping centers are being built up quickly everywhere in the city. However, there are still some peaceful places left, where you can rest your stressed soul. One of them is Qingyang Temple – the place where Laozi is to be said that he spoke the Tao Te King (also: Dao De Jing 道德经) to one of his disciples, which is one of the main books (besides the famous I Ching/Yi Jing 易经) of Daoism.
Learn about Taoism by visiting the largest Taoist location in Chengdu and freshen your knowledge of Taoism both as a religion and an ancient philosophy.

Stop At: Wuhou Memorial Temple, No.231 Wuhou Temple Street, Chengdu 610041 China
Known as Little Lhasa, Chengdu‘s colorful Tibetan quarter is as close as one can get to Tibet without traveling to the remote Sichuan countryside or crossing the border to Tibet itself. Wander down Wuhouci Heng Jie, directly opposite Wuhou Temple, and take in the sights: monks wrapped in maroon robes counting beads behind their backs, vendors selling yak butter on the street, and shop after shop of Tibetan Buddhist religious icons, prayer flags and wheels, tapestries, incense, wildly patterned leather boots, and beads of every hue, size and price.
We will not only walk around this Tibetan Quarter, but also taste Tibetan food like yak meat, drink yak butter tea,together with a Tibetan culture demonstration by our guide.
