Clothing: A sweater or coat, thick socks, and a scarf will help you stay warm when you go outside.

Things to Do

Chinese New Year: These are the most important public holidays in China, and for about 2/3 of the years, they fall in February. Many Mainland Chinese enjoy a two week vacation. Many cultural activates and celebrations are in the streets during the festival, so this the best time of the year to experience Chinese traditional culture. The holidays provide a chance to have fun with fireworks, try holiday food and snacks, buy tourist souvenirs, and experience the Sichuan customs firsthand in the historic city.

Qingyang Palace Lantern Festival: Qingyang Palace is an old restored temple about 3 kilometers from downtown Chengdu. Next to it is a park, and on Lantern Festival Day on the night of the full moon 15 days after the start of the new year, lanterns are lit at the temple and in the park. It is one of Chengdu's most popular festivals. More on Chengdu's Lantern Festival>>

New Year Fireworks: You won't need to go anyplace special to see the fireworks at 12 midnight on Chinese New Year's Eve if you are in the middle of the city. You won't be able toescape them exploding all around you in amazing quantities. Just go to the roof of your building to enjoy the show.

Jinsha Ruins Museum: One of Chengdu's favorite tourist attractions is a museum and archeological excavation site about 7 kilometers or 4 miles west of the Chengdu city center. A previously unknown Bronze Age civilization was discovered there in 2001. The ceremonial center flourished about 3,000 years ago.

February has a high in an otherwise low season month.
