Now again it's the season for "shaking to get rid of chills"
I heard that the surrounding scenic spots of Chengdu welcomed the first snow of the season two days ago. The heavy snow has piled up in Mount Siguniang, Hailuogou and Xiling Snow Mountain, where people can play snowballs and make snowmen. In such a cold winter without heat supply, I can only propose a hot spring trip together. It’s awesome to soak in steaming waters in winter while you see the snow mountains afar.
