Tianfu Tong

During your stay in Chengdu, you will need a transportation card called Tianfu Tong, which allows you to travel on buses and metros. If you has no Tianfu Tong, you can also buy single-journey card on metros and use cash (CNY2 per time and no change) on buses. Tianfu Tong are sold CNY20 at selected metro stations, and they can be topped up very easily (using cash only!) at all machines of all metro stations. Taxi are cheap and easily available in Chengdu, however the traffic is very unpredictable and often blocked, except late at night or very early in the morning.
