Sichuan Province/四川省

If you want to get along well with a person from Sichuan, you must talk about the food. Once you get on this topic, a Sichuanese will talk until the cows come home. After a while, you’ll suddenly realize that you’ve become great friends. BUT, if you actually don’t like Sichuan food, I recommend you say it’s because you have a weak stomach and can’t handle the spices. People in Sichuan walk slowly, and you’ll find them quite laid-back. It’s true. They’re super laid-back and not in too much of a hurry in the best sense possible. However, when it comes to Sichuan food, they tend to be less laid-back and will pay close attention to your reactions when eating it. This is just what people in Sichuan are like (from my perspective).

In terms of the province, it’s like Yunnan Province in that there are HUGE swathes of natural scenery, and many areas with Tibetan villages. Some travelers actually feel that going to Sichuan’s Tibetan villages is better than actual Tibet because it’s less inconvenient and involves a lot less paperwork. All you have to do in Sichuan is eat your fill, talk sweet, and you’ll have a great time.

And yes, YOU CAN SEE BABY PANDAS HERE!

如果你想对一个四川人很好,你一定要谈川菜的美味。这个话题一开始,四川人就侃侃而谈。聊了一段时间你们很快就可以跟四川人成为无话不谈的好朋友。但是如果不喜欢川菜的话,你一定要说是因为你胃不好。在路上看到四川人走得那么慢,你会感觉他们都很休闲。没错,就是很休闲,而且不急不忙。但是从美食的角度来看,他们比较在意,比较关注你对他们的菜有什么样的反应。这就是四川人的特点。

四川省的话也很独特。像云南省一样,也有大自然风光,包括很多藏族小区。有些旅客感觉去四川藏族的小镇实在比去西藏好多了,因为没有去西藏那么麻烦。你只要是吃饱点,嘴甜点,才能玩得更开心。

对了,在这里就可以看到小熊猫!
