People in Chengdu usually have a preference for spicy and hot flavored foods.  They are also know as a group that loves to party.  Chengdu has more tea houses and bars than even Shanghai, even though Shanghai has twice the number of locals.  The general population is usually referred to as being laid back and for knowing how to stop and enjoy life.  Most women of Chengdu are known to be sweet and charming.  The Chengdu people strive to be a calm, polite, and friendly group of people.
