Xindu city is north of Chengdu and at least once deserves a visit.
There you can visit the Monastery of Divine Light and also the city has two beautiful gardens both voted as cultural heritage by the tourism organisation.
From Chengdu take a bus to the north bus station and from there take another bus to Xindu city,the ride is about 1 hour.
Me in front of the monastery, I am a big guy, I know. haha
Guess who is this guy again inside the garden!
