From the south of Caiyun to the west of Tianfu
In the summer of 2014, my wife and I traveled to Yunnan and Sichuan. I have been to these two places: in 1999, I visited Kunming, Xishuangbanna, Dali and Lijiang. As for Sichuan, it was a long time. It was in 1977, and it has been 37 years since. Although this tour is to accompany his wife, but there is no renewed and nostalgic feelings. Originally, the scenery at four o’clock was different. What’s more, there have been many changes in the past. The so-called “three-day sect, when you look at each other.” So with such expectations, embarked on a journey.
On the morning of July 27, I went to Shenyang Taoxian Airport. The result was an early morning. I had to catch a late set: the plane that took off at 7:30, took off at 10:30. The reason is that the crew is too tired to rest well. The care for the passengers was OK, and each person gave a box lunch and a bottle of mineral water.
The plane stopped at Taiyuan and rested for an hour at Taiyuan Airport. Taiyuan Airport is very small, I am afraid it is the smallest one I have ever been to.
Arrive in Kunming at 3:30 in the afternoon. The change is not small, I can’t recognize it. Visit the Golden Horse and Jade Rooster in the city center. I have never been in 1999, it is a supplementary class. It is located in the Jinbi Square at the intersection of Sanshi Street and Jinbi Road. It consists of two parts, Jinmafang and Bijifang. The distance between them is tens of meters. It was built in the Xuande period of the Ming Dynasty. It is related to the animal totems worshipped by ethnic minorities: the legendary Dianchi has a 500-mile day of the horse, which is called “Golden Horse”; as for “Biji”, it may be a totem based on peacock and other rare birds. The amazing thing is that every 60 years of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the evening shines from the west side of the Bijifang, and when the reflection is cast on the street to the east, the moon just rises from the east, and the reflection casts on the street in the west. The shadows of the two arches gradually moved closer and closer, and finally overlapped, forming the so-called “Golden Bihui” spectacle. It is a pity that in 60 years, my generation has no chance. Stroll around the downtown area. Then I ate the rice noodles and went to Lijiang by train at 10:30.
Arrived in Lijiang at 7:30 on the 28th. Heavy rain like a note, sheltered from the station for a long time. I thought that Lijiang had not yet passed the train, but now Lijiang Railway Station is so big, it is really “amazing”! The phone contacted the daughter of the moonlight tribe, which was set up for us in advance, and they sent a car to pick it up (to pay separately). This is a small inn, but it has a national style and has a charm.
The inn’s watchdog is very gentle. It is guarding our suitcases.
Dog name – Latte, it really brings us the warmth of a cup of coffee!

Around 11 o’clock, the rain is fine, and you can visit the ancient city. 15 years ago, the ancient city of Lijiang was very quiet, the bridge was flowing, the shade was green, and it was quaint and pleasant. Nowadays, it actually makes me “stunned”: the head is moving, the shoulders are smashing, the karaoke is OK, the sound is shaking, and the decibel is so big that I can’t avoid it. I thought that in the past, I used to sip my throat in the creek and taste sweet. I also witnessed the store taking water from the creek to cook. Now, all this is no longer reproduced: the stream is no longer crystal clear! Is Lijiang already far away, can only be a dream lover? I thought that in the past, I once dreamed of being in Lijiang forever, how happy it is, but now there is no such wish! Excessive development has spoiled the ancient city.
The visual feast can not be realized, and the feast of taste (should be taste snacks) to make up for it: we used nearly a day to taste chickpea jelly, rice enema, fried milk fan, flower cake, Naxi rice cake, Naxi clam and so on. They have different forms and different tastes and have not been tasted since 1999. This is another remedial course – and it is a “bad complement”!

What about the night? Dim?
I visited Mufu on the morning of the 29th. This can be purely warm.
Mufu is the Lijiang Tusi House of the Ming Dynasty, located near the Guanmenkou in the ancient city of Lijiang. It is a building that mimics the Forbidden City in Beijing. The scale is large and magnificent. Xu Xiake once sighed: “The beauty of the palace, it is intended to be the king.” The current Mufu system was rebuilt on the original site. The entire courtyard covers an area of 46 acres and the central axis is 369 meters long. On the wooden archway, there are four characters of “Tianyu Liufang”, which is the homonym of “Reading to Go” in Naxi language. The stone archway in front of the Mufu Gate was built with white marble from the Jinsha River on the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The word “loyalty” on the plaque is the gift of Ming Shenzong. On the central axis are the Yimen, the Chamber of Deputies, the Wanjuan Building, the Hufa Hall, and the Sanqing Hall. Its architectural style blends Han, Naxi and Bai. The filming “Mufu Fengyun” was shot in the wooden house. This makes Mufu famous.
The courtiers are loyal to the king, and the locals are loyal to the central government. (Hang Ming Ming Shenzong inscription)
The “wood” of Mufu is the “Zhu” of the Zhu Dynasty, and it has been removed from one another.

Return to the place to rest and bathe at noon. It is quieter here – if no one is singing.
After the break, walk in the ancient city and remember the old days. In the evening, I ate at a famous restaurant on the bar street, which is about a thousand miles of riding a single ride. This is about the filming of the same name by Zhang Yimou in Lijiang. There are many people in the restaurant, and there are a few basics. Want to go back to the place, it’s heavy rain, hitThe car went back, 30 yuan, not playing the table.
This is a musical instrument store with a name that starts in seconds.
“World heritage signs” can be seen everywhere.
The ancient city buildings are mostly two-story, not allowed to exceed three floors.
This is the ancient tea road
Lijiang Inn is mostly called “inn”, and there are very few people called “hotels”.
The inn is small but has an ancient charm.

In the event of a dance performance, visitors can also participate! Unfortunately, we just made a visitor.
It’s rare to find a restaurant that is not noisy.
30th. Going to Tiger Leaping Gorge today.
I watched the first bay of the Yangtze River in the middle.
After the Yangtze River (known as the Jinsha River in Yibin, Sichuan Province) originated from Qinghai, the basic trend was all the way down to the south. After the rushing to Shigu, it was blocked by the Hailuo Cliff and forced to turn a “V” shaped big bend, turn north, then east Go, this is the first bay of the Yangtze River. Shigu Town is just beside this first bay, because the town has a drum-like white marble monument. This monument is a monument to the victory of the Lijiang Tusi expansion in Jiajing during the Ming Dynasty. Here, the river surface is wide, the water is not in a hurry, and it is suitable for ferry, thus becoming a battleground for the military. In April 1936, the Red Army’s 2nd and 6th Army led by He Long crossed the river here.
On the way to Tiger Leaping Gorge
The Jinsha River here is very gentle. The scenery is like an ink and ink.
Wanli Yangtze River First Bay
Yuanwang Yangtze River First Bay
After the “First Bay”, the Yangtze River flowed for about 40 kilometers to the north. With the unstoppable momentum, the two snow-capped mountains of Yulong and Haba were opened, resulting in the deepest, narrowest and most dangerous canyon in the world. Leaping the gorge. The total length of the Tiger Leaping Gorge is 20 kilometers. The vertical height difference of the canyon is 3790 meters, and the narrowest part is more than 20 meters. Can be divided into the upper tiger jump, the middle tiger jump, the next tiger jump three paragraphs. There is a huge stone lying on the river in the tiger. It is said that there is a tiger leaping on both sides of the river with this stone, so the name is Tiger Jumping Stone, and the canyon is also named Tiger Leaping Gorge. When we went to the rainy season, the Jinsha River was full of water and great momentum. When it was not seen, it was already a sound of the waves. It was nearing the sights, and the narrow waters of the river were rolling in the sky, and the world was soaring, weeping and challenged you. Psychology and nerves. The splash of water splashes into your face from time to time, and even makes you feel suffocated. This is sublime, this is the stalwart! You can’t help but pay tribute to the heroes who drifted through the Tiger Leaping Gorge!

In the evening, I returned to the ancient city of Lijiang and ate the famous salmon here.
On the morning of the 31st, I went to the ancient town of Shuhe. This is also a supplementary lesson. The last time I came to Lijiang, I only hang around in the ancient city of Lijiang (Dayan Ancient Town). I have not gone anywhere else.
Shuhe Ancient Town is much smaller than Dayan Ancient Town. It was originally a station on the ancient tea-horse road, and the pattern is similar to that of Da Yan. It is clean and tidy. Because of the small number of people, it is also quieter than Da Yan. There is a clear spring on the streets of the ancient town, and the clear water flowing out of the pool flows through every household in the ancient town. On the street, there are slabs that have been trampled by thousands of people. There is also a Dajue Palace, which houses Buddhist murals. Compared with Da Yan, it is more suitable for leisure.

In the afternoon, my wife went back to the place to rest. I went alone to the ancient town of Baisha, not far from Shuhe Ancient Town. Located at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the town is the original settlement of the Naxi people in the Lijiang area. The murals here are very famous. The white sand mural mainly refers to the religious murals painted by Lijiang Mu’s toast in the Buddhist temple from Ming Hongwu to Wanli, and is most famous in the Dabaoji Palace. I went in and visited. There are not many tourists here, but there are foreigners (whites).
The town road is muddy and many houses are being repaired. Probably on the eve of big development. I hope it will come like Da Yan.
Here is the main place where white sand murals exist.

After returning to Dayan (Lijiang Old Town), I continued to hang out: I will leave Lijiang tomorrow, and I am a bit reluctant.

Take the train to Dali from the morning of August 1. In 1999, the bus was taken from the south to the north by Xishuangbanna. The scenery was wonderful along the way, and sometimes I felt that the car was walking through the fairy tale world. This time it is from north to south, and the scenery outside the window is not as good as seen before.
Arrived in Dali at 10:30, stayed at a Buddhist-run inn (the daughter gave the reservation in advance). This inn is very clean, and the three meals are free – not only for the passengers who stay, but even for the special yoghurt (I have seen two traffic police-like people dine here, it may be convenient) However, they need to be able to cook after the meal. The service staff are volunteers who believe in Buddhism. The number of meals that a passenger must eat, how much to play, can not be left, and the soup water in the rice bowl and dishes should be eaten clean. If the dish is wiped clean with a steamed bun, the taro will be eaten by himself. It neither wastes food nor is easy to clean. It is really possible to cultivate good habits.

After you settle down, go to visit the ancient city of Dali. Compared with the previous visit, there are many bustling, many lively, noisy and completely commercialized. What makes me amazed is that there are also Western restaurants and Western artisans singing. As for foreigners, there are as many foreigners as Lijiang. Fifteen years ago, it was already known that Lijiang was the Venice of the East and Dali was the Eastern Geneva. Now, the two places are really a bit world-wide – there is still a street called “Yangren Street” in Dali! It is a pity that these foreigners who came here later could not appreciate the original rhyme of the ancient city.

Resting at the hotel on the next day (August 2nd): The rain is too big to go out. Although the afternoon rain did not stop, but could not be wasted in the hotel, so I took a taxi to visit the Dali Palace in the city.
The film and television city is the location where Jin Yong’s famous book Tian Long Ba Bu was filmed. The general film and television drama shooting, the real scene is often built temporarily, but this film and television city is a physical building complex. Its architecture, on the one hand, must conform to the style of the Song Dynasty, and at the same time, it also combines the local characteristics of Dali. Now it has become an important project of Dali tourism. The entire building complex is divided into three parts: Dali State, including Dali Street, Dali Palace, Zhennan Wangfu; Liao State, including Liaochengmen, Liaojie Street; Xixia Royal Palace and Jurchen Tribe. Various folk performances are often held here, and we watched throwing hydrangea.

In the evening, I went to the bar street in the city (small than Lijiang, but the noisy sound is smaller than Lijiang) and I went to Foreigner Street. Common blonde. We tasted it in a famous cake house, on the same table as an old white man.

On August 3, I packed a rough car and swam around the sea.
Thanks to the route to Chongsheng Temple, there was a look there: I visited it in 1999.

Then start traveling around the Bohai Sea clockwise. The Bohai Sea belongs to the Lancang River system, and the downstream is the Mekong River. It is a plateau freshwater lake with an altitude of 1972 meters, an area of 251 square kilometers, 41.5 kilometers long from north to south, and 3-9 kilometers wide from east to west. From Jiangwei Township in Wuyuan County to Xiaguan Town in Dali City in the south, it looks like a bend in the whole. The new moon, the so-called Dali’s “wind and snow” (Xiaguan Wind, Shangguanhua, Cangshan Snow, Menghaiyue), there are three related to the Bohai Sea: Xiaguanfeng, Shangguanhua, Haohaiyue. The Bohai Sea is the second largest freshwater lake in Yunnan.
Bohai is also the main birthplace of the ancestors of the Bai people. The cultural landscape around the Bohai Sea has rich folklore content. We have checked the Xizhou Old Town in advance and it is free to visit. Unexpectedly, there was a sudden charge, 60 yuan a person, the elderly are not free. We asked, answered, the ancient town visits have just been contracted by individuals, the relevant travel introduction has not yet had time to change; due to private contracting, so do not implement the rules for the elderly free of charge. At this time, just two girls went out after the visit and told us that 60 yuan is too worthless, there is no need to go in. So we looked outside the town and ate the hustle and bustle here: it really has a well-deserved reputation.
We continue to travel around, and the scenery is really good all the time. Although this “Oriental Geneva” is not as good as Switzerland (I have been to Switzerland twice), it is also very refreshing. Especially the double corridor, it is a perfect place for scenery, where photography needs to be queued. In order to make a place for a pair of young people who couldn’t wait, I ran anxiously and actually fell. The lower part of the knee fell below and there was blood oozing out. It took a long time to find a pharmacy to buy a band-aid. In fact, we brought this thing when we left, but unfortunately did not carry it with us. This is a lesson.

There are no tall trees, but it has broadened the horizon for viewing.
However, it is even more regrettable that the Dali City Binhai Park was changed to a commercial development site by the developer. I thought that I used to enjoy the flowers in the park and watch the fishermen catch fish for a long time. At that time, the park was very large and it was a good place to rest. It’s gone now, only a narrow one. At night, take the night train to Kunming at 22:30.

On the 4th in Kunming, I mainly visited the Yunnan Ethnic Village. I have been to Xishan and Dianchi, and my wife has chosen an attraction that has never been visited by two people.
The ethnic village consists of 15 villages, which reflect the life and folk customs of 15 ethnic minorities in Yunnan. The staff of different villages come from the villages of different ethnic groups – not the cottage version! Each village has handicrafts and foods that represent their respective ethnic styles and can be purchased and tasted. Sometimes there are folk song and dance performances and elephant performances. We watched the latter.

It takes a whole day for the entire tour, and it is also a sight to behold. We just selected a few villages to walk around, but also to appreciate the customs of Yunnan ethnic minorities.
In the evening, I took the Kunming line train and left Kunming to Chengdu.
On the following day (5th), it was only 4 o’clock in the afternoon to reach the capital: the train was delayed for 4 hours, and it was stopped for more than three hours due to a thunderstorm in Panzhihua at night. But during the day, it is basically sunny, and enjoy the scenery along the way. The Chengdu-Kunming line is one of the most difficult road sections of China’s railways, and construction is quite difficult. Along the way, I wore a gorge-deep-drilling tunnel. I don’t know how many sacrifices the railway soldiers and migrant workers made in the past, which made the road without a road change, and they could not help but feel heavy.
Entering the land of abundance
In this way, finally came to the “West of Tianfu” – Chengdu by the south of Caiyun. According to the current Sichuan map, Chengdu is located in central Sichuan. In fact, in the presence of Xikang Province, Chengdu was on the western plains of Sichuan, and it was the “West of Tianfu”. (In the early 1950s, the government divided the former Xikang Province into two: the west of the Jinsha River was placed under the Tibet Autonomous Region. Classified to Sichuan Province).
The last time I arrived in Chengdu was 1977, and it has been nearly 40 years since. The young people of that year have become white-headed, and they are deeply impressed.
After a short break at the hotel, head to the famous Kuanzhai Alley.
Kuanzhai Alley is a combination of wide alleys and narrow alleys, and is known as “the most popular tourist landmark in Chengdu”. Unfortunately, 40 years ago and in the future, it is now a supplementary class. In fact, the two alleys are parallel streets that are tens of meters apart. The wide and narrow alleys can be described as the concentration of the urban well culture, and the ancient charm of the old Chengdu is everywhere. The architectural style, courtyard style, folk art and specialty snacks of Chengdu are displayed here. This is really a vivid portrayal of the “old Chengdu years”.
“wide and narrow”
Go to Dujiangyan City on the 6th. This is the only city I have visited in the past. The reason why Dujiangyan is famous in the world is naturally due to its extremely sophisticated water conservancy project – it has entered the World Heritage List. It was built by Li Bing and his sons in the Warring States Period. It has benefited the local people for more than 2,000 years and still serves the people wholeheartedly. The Dujiangyan water conservancy hub consists of three main projects, namely fish mouth, Feisha carp and Baoshoukou. It is mainly based on diversion irrigation, and has many functions such as flood control and sediment discharge, water transportation and urban water supply. The ancient buildings such as Erwang Temple, Fulongguan and Anzhen Bridge are integrated with the water conservancy project, telling the tenacity and hard work of the people of the land, and singing the wisdom and achievements of Li Bing and his son.

Aquarius mouth. It is the diversion project of Dujiangyan, which has the function of “control gate” and can automatically control the water intake. Because of the shape of the bottle mouth, hence the name.
The hill on the right side of the bottle mouth is separated from the mountain because of the same mountain.

On the morning of August 7, I visited the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Base.
It is located in the Axe Mountain in the northern suburbs of Chengdu. There is a Panda Avenue connected to the urban area. There are giant panda animal houses, feed rooms, and experimental buildings. In addition to giant pandas, there are rare animals such as red pandas, peacocks, black-necked cranes and black swan. There is also the Giant Panda Hall and Butterfly Pavilion.The three major exhibition halls, such as the vertebrate museum. The scenery of the whole base is excellent. It is a great place for people to get close to animals, to spread scientific knowledge about animals, and to make people feel aesthetically pleasing.
Base interior: Go to the Giant Panda Pavilion.

After returning to the city in the afternoon, I will visit Jinli first.
Jinli is one of the oldest and most commercial streets in Sichuan history. It relies on the nearby Wuhou Temple and has been famous for its Qin and Han Dynasties. The full length of 350 meters, is still showing the legacy of the Three Kingdoms. On both sides of a winding bluestone road, there are various kinds of mansions, houses, inns and shops. There are also a variety of Chengdu-style snacks, which attract people to stop and enjoy. It’s just that there are too many people, so sometimes they can’t even breathe. It is no wonder that the fame is really shocking and the name is real. If you don’t come here in Chengdu, it’s not a lifetime regret!
This is a stage
Of course, this is also related to its closeness to Wuhou.
Built in 223 AD, Wuhou Temple was built to commemorate the famous philanthropy and military strategist Zhuge Liang. It has been damaged and rebuilt. The existing main building was built in the Kangxi period (1672) and covers an area of about 150,000 square meters. In addition to Zhuge Liang, there are more than 50 statues of Liu Bei and other heroes of Shu Han. Among them, Liu Bei Temple, also known as Liu Bei Temple, is dedicated to Liu Bei. There is a statue of Liu Bei in the temple, up to 3 meters, and the statue of Liu Bei’s descendants – but Liu Zen (Adou) is excluded. This is not the son of the children! On both sides of Liu Bei Dian, there are east and west temples, the east is dedicated to Guan Yu and its descendants and ministers, and the west is dedicated to Zhang Fei and his descendants. Taoyuan Sanjieyi, when the life is different, the death does not separate.
The real core building is Zhuge Liangdian. Zhuge Liang was named “Wuxiang Hou” before his death, and the nickname was “Zhongwu”, which commemorated his name “Wuhou Temple”. There is a couplet on both sides of the temple door. It is written by the Qing Dynasty Zhao Wei: “If you can attack the heart, you will eliminate it from the opposite side. Since ancient times, you know that the soldiers are not belligerent; if you don’t judge the situation, you will be lenient and strict, and later you will think deeply.” Those who rule the cure must think deeply, and those who govern the country must think deeply. The wisdom of the couplet is still of practical significance.

I visited Du Fu Caotang on the morning of the 8th and came here 40 years ago. It is now a revisited place.
Du Fu CaotangIt is located on the bank of Huanhua River in the western suburb of Chengdu. In the winter of 759 AD, Du Fu lived in the house to avoid the “Anshi’s chaos” and lived there for 4 years. Here, the poet has created more than 200 poems, including the famous poems such as “The Hut is the Song of the Autumn Wind” and “The Spring Night Rain” that I have learned in junior high school. The cottage itself is very simple; it is the monumental building that was later built, and the atmosphere is elegant. Among them, Zhaobi, Zhengmen, Shishitang, Chaimen, Gongbu, etc. are all on one central axis. The central building is the Shishitang, the middle of which is the statue of Du Fu, which displays the inscriptions of famous celebrities.
Wanfo Building is also one of the landmark buildings of Du Fu Caotang, in the Nanmu forest on the east side of the Caotang. There are large-scale glazed inlaid lacquer murals in Quanya Hall and sculptures by Qu Yuan, Tao Yuanming, Chen Ziang, Wang Wei, Li Bai, Bai Juyi, Li Shangyin, Su Shi, Huang Tingjian, Lu You, Li Qingzhao and Xin Qiji. In this way, Du Fu will be placed in the long history of the development of ancient Chinese poetry, which will highlight the unique status and historical significance of Du Fu.
There is also a garden tour area in the northwest corner of Caotang. There are plum blossoms, sea bream, magnolia, lotus, etc., which have a distinctive style of western Sichuan. In this way, the entire Caotang scenic spot is not only a commemoration of the great poet, but also a historical and cultural knowledge, and it becomes a clean and elegant place to rest, giving people a multicultural and artistic enjoyment.

In the afternoon, I strolled to Kuanzhai Alley and tasted several snacks. In Chengdu for four days, each time with a snack. I remember that I came to Chengdu 40 years ago and just ate the dandan noodles; this time it is a bad supplement. I simply remembered that the snacks I have eaten include: dragon copying hand, bell dumplings, Shaozi eggs, three cannons, pineapple rice, beef coke cake, crystal dumplings, Zhangfei dried beans, spiced rabbit meat, husband and wife lung slices, salad noodles , Lai Tang Yuan, Zhang Liangfen, Ice CreamCake, Chengdu court cakes, etc. A few introductions to the selection:
Long Chao Shou. Copying hands is the shackles of the north. The name of the dragon copying hand is because the founder Zhang Wuguang and his friend used the word “rich” in the “Conghua Tea Garden” when they negotiated the opening of the hand-to-hand shop in the “Chuhua Tea Garden”, with the name “Dragon” as the name of the homonym. The meaning, the figure is auspicious. So the name of the store is set to “Dragon Hand”. Now has won the title of “China’s old name”. In fact, we did not go to the “Dragon Hand” store; it was eaten at a restaurant near the residence. Thin skin, tender stuffing, fresh soup, I want to eat another bowl. I specially looked at the chef’s operation and thought that the delicateness of the meat stuff should not be said to be meat, but meat, too suitable for the elderly to enjoy.
Bell dumplings. Beginning in the late Qing Dynasty, the original store was named “Xie Senmao”, because the founder named Zhong Shaobai, hence the name Zhong Dumpling. The stuffing of Zhong Dumpling is pure pork, without adding other vegetables. There are two types of red oil dumplings and clear soup dumplings, all of which are delicately incisive, giving the tip of the tongue unlimited enjoyment. Also won the “Chinese old name” name.
Lai Tang Yuan. Named after the founder Lai Yuanxin. It is a “hundred years old”. Lai Tang Yuan does not show stuffing when boiled, does not lick soup, does not stick teeth when eating, not greasy mouth. Initially, it was popular with chicken oil dumplings. Later, the variety was greatly increased. Today, there are more than ten kinds of black sesame, sesame sauce, rose, ice orange, sand washing, and eight treasures. The style is numerous and it is impossible to enjoy the whole meal. Especially unlike the northern way of eating, you can also use dips in the soup.
Three cannons. Mainly made of glutinous rice. Because the master was throwing the glutinous rice group, the three small gongs, like the projectile, issued three sounds of “When, Dang, Dang”, which was named “Three Cannons”. It tastes sweet and delicious and is popular among diners. I am afraid that it is best to eat this kind of snack in Kuanzhai Alley or Jinli. I can see the performance of the master. I can hear the beautiful sound, which is the four-fold enjoyment of the color and fragrance. I am afraid that I can only eat food in the big hotel, and I can’t hear the “beauty”.
Couple lungs. It was created in the 1930s by Guo Chaohua and Zhang Tianzheng. There are tripe, beef tongue, cow scalp, etc. in the couple’s lungs, with red oil, pepper, sesame and other spices, the color is red and bright, the texture is soft and tender, and the taste is strong. Today, the Sichuan restaurant in the north has this dish. But when you arrive in Chengdu, you must enjoy authenticity.
Zhang Liang powder. It has the same name as Sichuan North Cool Powder. There are two flavors of hot and sour and cardamom. The biggest difference between the two is that the former adds vinegar, while the latter does not add vinegar, but uses soybean meal as a seasoning. This snack bar is located on Wenshuyuan Street, not far from our residence.
Palace pastries. The court pastry shop is across the street from Zhang Liangfen. The interior of the store is elegantly decorated with a slight courtesy. The color of the pastry is good and it is worth tasting.
No longer listed, otherwise it will be suspected of being a spokesperson for Chengdu snacks.
I think it is particularly worth mentioning that Chengdu snacks are not expensive, and the wage earners can fully afford them.
At 5 o’clock in the evening, with the fragrance of Chengdu snacks in the mouth, reluctantly boarded the return train.
Wide and narrow lane houses
Making three cannons
I spent the whole day on the train on the 9th. Crossed Sichuan, Gan, Shaanxi, Henan, Fujian and Tianjin.
Zhengzhou Yellow River Bridge.
Although it is midsummer, the river is like a creek.
On the 10th, entered the territory of Liaoning. The train was delayed more than three hours, and arrived at Shenyang North Station at 2 pm.
Although this trip to Luanchuan is mainly for my wife, there are still many gains. Xizhe believes that people can’t bathe in the same river, of course, because of the constant flow of river water; we go to a tourist destination, the destination seems to be fixed, in fact, it is not changing, and even going to Have a new feeling. I have been to Germany three times, and each experience and feeling is not the same. This time I went to Yunnan and Sichuan again and there are new experiences and fun. Especially in Sichuan, 40 years ago, it can only be said that it is a taste. This time it was really a deep tour: it is not necessary to say that Jiang Yan had never been there before. Kuanzhai Alley and Jinli could not patronize (before Wuhou Temple, but not close to Jinli), it is such a rich variety of snacks in Chengdu, just Taste a bowl of dandan noodles. The reason is not only that the work is the first, life is poor and busy; that is, in the ideological understanding, it does not understand the meaning of tourism for life. Therefore, the so-called “snow-seeking water” that borrows the work is just a “small water” ear. This time, not only did Chengdu snacks come tough, but also learned about Sichuan’s history and culture through Chengdu snacks, and turned the “land of abundance” in the past geography books into the “land of abundance” in the mind and senses. When I saw the people in Chengdu Metro are happy to give up, the service staff of the hotel always smiled and welcomed the impression that the Chengdu people I got from the book liked “noisy”. I think that the founder of the so-called “land of abundance” must have the quality and character that is in harmony with this “land of abundance”. The trip to Yunnan brought me a little disappointment: over-exploitation made the landscape lose its quietness and elegance, but it also expanded its popularity, attracted more tourists, and even improved the material living standards of the people there. . Whether it is worth the loss or not is worth pondering.
