Wonder at the architecture, history, and conservation of the Wangjiang Pavilion complex in the heart of Chengdu. The pavilion grounds hold a memorial to a beloved poet Xue Tao, established during the Tang dynasty (618 AD – 907 AD). Bamboo gardens containing 150 different varieties are a tribute to the poet Xue who loved bamboo, as well as a remarkable effort to conserve an important food source for pandas. Visitors are welcome to mingle with locals while partaking in green tea, nuts, a game of Mahjong or Chinese chess, and if you arrive early, a session of tai chi or fan dancing.
