1. Enjoy hot pot

One well-known proverb in Chengdu states, "If your problems can't be resolved with one hot pot, it will certainly be resolved with two." In other words, a steaming pot of comforting food is the key to a happy life. Known for being spicy, oily, and packed with numbing Sichuan peppercorns, Chengdu's hot pot should be on everyone's itinerary when they visit. However, outsiders may find it quite a shock for their digestive system… Locals, therefore, recommend eating plain rice after your meal to soak up the oil. Nevertheless, no matter the time of year, eating hot pot in Chengdu is a must-do. The city is, after all, the first Asian city to win the honor of City of Gastronomy from UNESCO.
