After giving birth to the baby, I didnt return to Chengdu for a while. I felt that I changed the tourists instantly, and went to the wide and narrow alleys for a circle. Visitors took ^^ drops!
Share a few small experiences:
1, all the snacks in Kuanzhai Alley are not good (note that it is all!) If you eat, it is recommended to take a few steps, there is a good food to Guihua Lane. Eat, and the squid noodles in the alley is not bad
2, if you have not tried public ears, you can try
3, if you want to avoid the crowd, please come early in the morning or in the middle of the night, don't be afraid to close the door, don't have The general flavor of my first time to Kuanzhai Alley is one o'clock in the morning, the small bar is still open, very mood
4, afternoon tea can just look for a good looking to sit down and drink, some can see what is changing face, Basically, the performances in different shops in the wide and narrow alleys are similar, because basically the actors are everywhere, and it is not recommended for dinner.
Wide and narrow alleys, the most market in Chengdu. Kuanzhai Alley is the best embodiment of the life of the city. From the eight-flag brothers of the Qing Dynasty during the Manchurian period, the birds and the flowers were used to make the grass; when the Republic of China was in the Republic of China, the nobles and the nobles were intertwined, the banquets and guests, and now the literati tourists have a cup of tea and a bamboo chair to taste the life. The wide and narrow alleys have become typical. A portrayal of life in Chengdu. Kuanzhai Alley is located in the central area of the city and plays an important role in Chengdu's overall strategic layout of historical and cultural city display system and historical and cultural heritage protection system.
Kuanzhai Alley witnessed Chengdu as the representative of the development and evolution of urban construction in the past three hundred years. The urban pattern of Chengdu's two rivers embracing and three cities is now only the location of the road network and the river, while the wide and narrow alleys still retain the historical traces of the late Qing and early Republican.
China's Mancheng system is one of the most intact in Chengdu's dozens of important cities. Kuanzhai Alley fully reflects the historical evolution of the Qing Dynasty in the past 300 years.
The historical and cultural background of Kuanzhai Alley has created its unique style of planning and architecture: the combination of a complete city pattern and barracks, the combination of northern hutongs and Sichuan courtyards, and the combination of Western architecture and Western Sichuan residences during the Republic of China. These characteristics have created the architectural art characteristics of the wide and narrow alleys, making it a scarce urban cultural resource in the current trend of urban convergence.
