It’s said that Chengdu is a city that you don’t want to leave when you come. As more and more check-in attractions have exploded in recent years, the Chunxi Road, Kuanzhai Alley, and Panda Base you know may not be Chengdu’s "Chengdu". . Did you know that almost all the celebrity celebrities in a certain net are copycats? And People’s Park is not an authentic tea place in Chengdu, etc...

As a new aboriginal in Chengdu, in addition to witnessing the rapid changes in the city, the slow Chengdu in my eyes is like the sadness sung in "Wedding Street" and the smell of bean paste that permeates "Shanghai 1943".

If you like this nostalgia and ordinary as much as I do, then we will visit those characteristic old streets that are hidden in the city and are about to disappear that only the old Chengdu knows, and experience the local family life.
This trekking experience is different from other experiences. It does not go to popular attractions, does not recommend food, and does not provide paid travel photography. Because I want to take you on a pure City walk. The real scenery lies in the inadvertent beauty. Food is often hidden in corner stalls, and the best photo is the moment you take out your phone. Stop and go all the way, across most of Chengdu (KA) (KA) corner (KOK) corner (KOK), all of which are the fireworks alleys and alleys that I have carefully recommended for you and I have personally lived for decades. .
We can ride our bicycles at will, we can also hop on any wooden bus that goes to the depths of Baihua, or take a leisurely stroll. You can take out your mobile phone to record everything you encounter at any time, or you can taste snacks and refreshments that only local people can eat along the way. Or come to a neighbourhood teahouse with me and order a cup of tureen coffee that is only sold in Chengdu.
1.
The entire itinerary will be sent from the city center. I will take you to find a very hidden old market nearby that has survived for more than half a century, as well as the only existing old city wall site in Chengdu. Feel the joys and sorrows of the world in the baptism of the demolition tide.
2.
Then stepped on a bicycle all the way north to the Fu River. In a residential alley less than two meters away, there is a small theater modified from an old factory. This is a niche base for niche people in Chengdu. If you are lucky, you might also be able to see Director Jia Zhangke drinking tea and chatting here.
3
After that, we can take any bus, or continue cycling, and come to a few old streets near People’s Park. Here you can ask the Niang Niang (aunt) who came across to buy vegetables, maybe we can meet that. "Sugar, oil and fruit Xi Shi" with a lingering charm.
4
At this time, congratulations on your achievement in the half-round tour of the old city of Chengdu. We can ride along the scenic Jinjiang. I will tell you some honey stories about this road. Later, I came to the wild attraction "Mandarin Duck Tower" next to my alma mater Sichuan University Wangjiang campus to experience the cyberpunk-like life of Chengdu civilians.
5
The last stop is the highlight of this experience, to experience Yulin, the largest active residential area in Southwest China. Experience the unforgettable experience of the livehouse block of the locals, the smell of fireworks permeating the streets and the food to the buttress wall.
The above route also contains many hidden easter eggs, space is limited, so stay tuned! Of course, if you have your own ideas and preferences, please also let me know, we can adjust flexibly!

之前在实习的时候接触到citywalk这一形式后很感兴趣,这次来成都旅游就体验了一把🤓很高兴遇到了靠谱的本地人带路,领略了另一种风貌的成都 📍行程节奏 不疾不徐,安排妥当。骑行穿梭过老街巷后ethan带领我们来到一处社区书院,品味地道的盖碗茶,也恢复了体力继续前行。 📍体验感受 本以为包场会有些尴尬,但是和ethan接触后并无这种感觉。他本人相当健谈,但可以把握自然的度。虽然是理科生出身,谈吐中透露出文史地理的知识储备也相当丰富👍加深了对成都的认知理解 📍地点游览 选的地点都非常棒,假如事先不知道有citywalk,我也许都不会去到某一条街道,而就是跟随传统攻略前往宽窄巷子大熊猫基地云云…这条街道让我切身感受到了成都人民安逸巴适的生活节奏,之后忍不住又去了一次,某市场的青梅酒物廉价美,非常好喝! 😝想知道具体是哪一条巷子,就预订体验亲身体会吧~

太幸运了!遇上了成都难得的蓝天白云风和日丽的好天气,骑单车,啃兔头,品尝花椒味冰淇淋,逛玉林社区,小坐玉林小酒馆,没听过上海1943的伪文艺青年轻松自然地在富有人文情怀的Ethan陪伴的city walk中,从一个非主流景点的视角了解成都,观察和感受一部分成都人的慢生活,不刻意的规划中处处有彩蛋,惊喜之余再次感谢Ethan的host和愉快坦诚有深度地交流!并欢迎来上海哦~

ethan的citywalk很不错,我们穿过了本地生活气息浓厚的公园,有自发的传统舞蹈和一些自娱自乐的表演。我们也进了四川大学,那里是ethan的母校,他给我们讲了很多当时的故事。短短一天我们走了成都的几个很有本地特点的地方,吃了路边的成都美食。这次真的像本地人一样逛了成都。

如果可以出发前把定制或者规制的既定路线绘制地图或者手绘地图给到体验者会更好,中途吃吃喝喝机会少了一些
