I'm going to Chengdu for the first time next month. Any good recommendations for hotels, restaurants/bars, things to do, etc.? Only there for a couple of days to do US consulate business. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

Megacity with a subway. Lots of spicy food. Some pretty good hostels. The teahouse opera stuff in the guides is pleasant to wander around. Decent city to just follow TripAdvisor on.

Leshan probably not enough time in a few days total trip. Panda reserve is located outskirts of city.

Plenty to do without going too far.

1 - Kuan Zhai Alley
2 - Jin Li Street

Great for the outdoor food courts and people watching.

I'll also recommend the Leshan Buddha. It can be done in a day trip. Stay in any of the hostels and they can arrange reasonable priced trips.
