THE TIBETAN SERIES, DAY 4

CHENGDU

Finding my Chinese wife in Chengdu. After yesterday I was super glad I decided to stay for a few days in Chengdu. Even just after my first full day here I can say it is up there with my favourite cities in the world!

MARRIAGE, PIG BRAIN AND THE HARDEST MASSAGE IN ONE DAY

As with any day in Chengdu we started it off with some food and there is no more famous noodles than Shanghai Miangua’s twiced cooked pork & noodle water. A great dish in the most amazing low-key setting. They cook the food on this very non-descript street away from the chaos of the city. The pork, layers of noodles and spice make this meal a great start to the day.

BACK TO MARRIAGE PARK

Obviously because I am an absolute keeno to find an Asian wife we decided to go back to the marriage park and what an experience this was. Within just a few minutes, someone asked us if we were looking for a suitable partner and then immediately took us to one of the marriage agents for an interview.

DAILY INFO….

  • HOTEL – Niccolo 8/10
  • RESTOS –
    Shang Chi Noodle Shop – Twice cooked pork & noodle water
    Wu Li Guan Hotpot
    Lan Kwai Fang Bar Street

FEE

Here she asked for some info; My height, job, language, what type of girl I was looking for etc. With this info she looked through her database of hundreds of women and even went as far as sending my photo and calling a few girls. They asked me if I wanted to leave my info at the office so they could continue their search, however, at a cost of $1000 a month, pricier than a Tinder subscription!

PIG BRAIN HOTPOT

Chengdu is famous for its food and even more famous for its spicy hotpots. Grace took me to a really good local spot to try chicken feet, cow stomach and pig brain. You have to try a hotpot when here in Chengdu but don’t worry about the pig brain and cow stomach it can also come with regular meat! Apparently locals love chicken feet, but again I couldn’t forget that it was chicken feet!

COLONIC & THE WORLD’S ROUGHEST MASSAGE

After eating more than enough spice and pig brain to do me the world we headed to the Chengdu arse clinic. No Joke! It’s not the exact translation but close enough. Here we had a colonic irrigation where they pump 15litres of water into your intestines to clear you out… It clears you out alright the constant feeling of cramps and needing a sh*t were horrendous.

Then we took a walk to a famous massage shop for the world’s hardest massage. I admit I am probably as inflexible as they come but this women didn’t give me an ounce of sympathy. She put me into positions I didn’t think were possible! No doubt I will feel this for weeks.

  FACTS ABOUT CHENGDU:
  • Chengdu is famous for its Giant Pandas as it has the world’s only Panda Research Centre.
  • Chengdu is renowned for its spicy cuisine, notably its hotpot.
  • Chengdu boasts a millennia-old tea culture, with tea houses serving as vital social hubs.

EAR CLEAN

In cities that have so much to offer I always recommend just to take a walk and see what you come across. We took a dander through a Chinese market where they sell snacks, drink and souvenirs, a great place for tons of free samples.

Eventually we ended up at the bar street where we could see a lot of bright signs and live music. But between two bars we found a few guys doing some ear cleaning. But this was not just a man with a cotton bud, these fellas had an ear cleaning camera and monitor so your wax filled ears were being live streamed to the public behind you! Not a better feeling though.

DANDER BACK TO THE HOTEL

From here it was back to the hotel via Chengdu’s club street. I didn’t know what to expect when it came to Chengdu’s club scene but this place was full of bars and clubs. Would no doubt put Ibiza’s West End to shame!

FINAL THOUGHTS

My time in Chengdu has already come to an end and I am gutted! I didn’t entirely know what to expect but already I cannot wait to come back
