Last week we covered the Shanghai portion in part 1 of our Pro Skills Basketball China Tour recap, so this week it’s on to Chengdu for part 2!
Chengdu is not the biggest or the most famous city in China, but over the course of our four-day visit, the PSB China Tour group savored its signature slow pace.
We saw Pandas, played Chinese Basketball Association U21 Blue Whale team, and burnt our mouths (willingly) with spicy Sichuan cuisine.
Overall, we saw a markedly different – and more authentic – version of China in comparison to sprawling Shanghai or bustling Beijing.
When our China tour group met for orientation, most of the group had not heard of Chengdu (成都). But by the end of the trip almost everyone said the time spent in the heart of Sichuan province (四川省) was the most memorable part of the entire experience.
