S han g ri- L a C he n g d u Many people make the journey to Chengdu— once the start of the Southern Silk Road—in search of the giant pandas, but end up falling in love with the city’s unique tradition of hospitality. This is even truer at the Shangri-La Chengdu; where in true Chinese custom, guests are welcomed with a warm cup of local tea upon arrival. The modern property is a feast for the eyes, with its sweeping views of the river and roving gallery of local contemporary artists. Starting the morning out with a latte and light breakfast at the Horizon Club will make you feel like you’re at your own home away from home before you start your day of exploring. 74 K ER & DOW NEY
