The Best Of Chengdu
I am back home now. I spent 7 days in Sichuan, China where I stayed in a fabulous hotel right in the downtown of Chengdu along the financial hubs near to the happenings of famous Chunxi Road which is similar to Shanghai's Nanjing Road.
Rhombus Chengdu Hotel offers very top notch facilities, interior decors and 5 Star services with the most polite & efficient team of hotel personnel right from the sales marketing, front desk, housekeeping and concierge services. I would have kissed them all for enduring my fussy demands!
I slept very comfortably for 5 nights on their king sized bed in their suite room. Everything was remote controlled and they provided 2 huge LED televisions with curtain screens operated by just a finger touch.
My wife spent most of the time lazing on this sofa to finish her university's assignments and the hotel was simply thoughtful to pamper us with fresh pistachio nuts everyday.
The bar and luxurious bathroom were fully stocked with beverages, best aromatic coffees with brewing machine and toiletry creams by Crabtree & Evelyn. I was in heavens and got all my worth's.
On my last night, I was checking out and waited for my car at the lobby when I saw a group of hotel personnel with bodyguards lining at the door to form a barricade. A tinted MPV arrived and a celebrity promptly jumped out amidst the screams of his fans outside. I was all the time holding my phone and managed to snap blurry photos of this Taiwan-based idol Wu Chun. He is so young and handsome. No wonder the gals screamed their lungs out!
I realised I made the same choice of hotel with a famous celebrity but he probably slept in a Presidential Suite while I booked my smaller room at promo rates, many months ahead. I shall return to stay there someday. This is not a paid advertisement okay.
Honestly, I was attracted to this Chengdu's Lan Kwai Fong's entertainment hub which is just a 20 minute walk away from the hotel. I was curious to see this place after partying at Hong Kong's Lan Kwai Fong several times.
It was so cold that night like 3 degrees with a light drizzle. I must say that it looked so different from HKG's but they are much more organized and colourful with lavish Christmas decors in Chengdu.
We both ate Japanese dinner and drank hot lattes at Starbucks after dinner.
We both held hands and rekindled our love along both sides of the river banks. Lan Kwai Fong overlooks the tranquil river and the colourful water reflections made it so romantic! Muacks!
