The city of 15 million was also named by Forbes as one of the world's fastest growing cities in the world, and cited by UNESCO as the first City of Gastronomy in Asia, for its fiery Sichuan cuisine.

The Ritz-Carlton, Chengdu provides an ideal base from which to explore the city's cultural and culinary wealth. The Ladies and Gentlemen of our staff will be ready to welcome you on Floor 25 upon your arrival. Walk on the green marble floors inspired by the Ming River and enjoy a cup of tea presented to you by a Kong Fu tea master. A stay in this downtown Chengdu hotel will give you a strong sense of the local culture and, for those who want to be close to nature, the hotel even has a private tea-estate at Mt Mending where guests can pick tea-leaves, try tea tasting and have a tea-inspired lunch as well.
