Chengdu Dialogue in the Dark offers a unique experience of being a Visually Impaired person. Great efforts have been made to create a space that is totally dark and restore the city life in Chengdu.

Visitors are able to explore what the life of a VI person is really like. They will walk through the bustling blocks, purchase goods in the market and even order drinks in the tea house.

Since the exhibition was open to public on June 30th,Chengdu DiD has become the only Dialogue in the Dark facility within China that has a permanent exhibition like this.

The journey lasts from 45 to 90 minutes. Before starting the dark journey in DiD, visitors will be trained with how to use the cane to navigate their ways. There will be a VI guide using his/her voice to lead and encourage them to explore the surrounding environment by using their senses beyond eyes.

    I need a flight for some of our travelers to United States. I would appreciate if you can send me a quote for review. Meanwhile, do you accept surcharges/fees for credit card payment? If yes, what percentage are your surcharges/fees on each card type you accept for payment? I hope to get your reply soon.
