Chinese City Fact: Chengdu

    Chengdu is known for a number of things but not many people realise that it is recognised as a real centre for Chinese tea culture. There are thousands of tea houses in the city where the local population like to go to socialise, play Mah Jong and cards and even listen to Sichuan opera performances. They were originally set up as working clubs for men where business transactions and deals were done.
