About City

Chengdu is located on the edge of the fertile plains of the Red Basin in China's Sichuan Province. Due to its agricultural wealth, Chengdu is sometimes called the "Land of Milk and Honey". The Funan river bisects the city, although boat traffic, common until the 1960's, has all but vanished.

The greater city area is now divided into 5 urban districts, 4 sub-urban districts and 9 counties, altogether home to more than 14 million people. Chengdu has the reputation as a very "laid-back" city that emphasizes culture and relaxation and as a result of this and much green space is ranked one of the most livable mega-cities in China. It is credited with a good nightlife scene and contains many new western style buildings in the large city centre.

Chengdu has a monsoon influenced, humid continental climate with much rainfall throughout the year measuring 870.2mm on average. Humidity is high year round. Winters are cold (the average January temperature is 5.6°C or 42°F) , however milder than these of the lower Yangtze, due to the Qin Mountains preventing the cold Siberian winds from entering the Yangtze Basin. Despite that, near-freezing lows should be expected during nightfall (around 3°C or 37°F) and periods of light frost normally occur in each winter. Hard frosts, with temperatures below -4°C (25°F) are rare, as well as the possibility of snow due to lack of precipitation. The lowest temperature ever recorded is -6.5°C (20.3°F). Summers in Chengdu are very warm (not hot) and humid, but not to the extent of other nearby cities, such as Chongqing, Nanjing and Wuhan. Highs commonly surpass 30°C (86°F) and the very high humidity makes the heat sweltering. Highs above 35°C (95°F) are very rare and the highest recorded temperature is 37.3°C (99°F). The majority of precipitation falls between May and September, due to the effect of the south-west monsoon. Spring and autumn are pleasant periods and the best times of the year to visit the city. Chengdu is also one of, if not the, cloudiest cities in China with 24% possible sunshine on average every year.

Air pollution in the city can sometimes cause hazardous conditions. Chengdu has an average particulate pollution of 72.9mm every cubic meter. Smog can be severe, so you should always check the readings before getting out. Always carry a mask with you.

By air
Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is located 20km (12 mi) outside of Chengdu city centre and is one of the main air hubs in China, recently ranked 4th in passenger volume. It serves flights to/from most major cities in China, many smaller cities within Sichuan, and some international destinations including Amsterdam, Bangkok, Denpasar, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Kathmandu, Paris, Melbourne, Sydney, Moscow, Osaka, Kuala Lumpur, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, and Tokyo.
