I need some information on chengdu travelling

I would appreciate some advise:-

1) Should I take the train from Chongqing North Station to Chengdu station or East Station?
I will be staying in 'Wenjun Mansion Hotel' in Qintai Road. Which Railway station is nearer and can I take the
metro to reach my hotel?
2)Does Chengdu and Chongqing sell the same product such as spices/tibits/snacks etc since they are both in Sizchun Province.
If I can get the things in Chengdu, it will help to reduce the loading of carrying from Chongqing.
3)Please advise how to travel from my hotel to those tourist spot:- 1.Chunxi President Street/Tianfu Street 2. Jinli Street 3. Wide and narrow alley
4. North Railway wholesale Market 5.Giant Panda Breeding
4)I intend to visit some temples such as Wenshu temple and Baoguang temple and Leshan, please advise how to reach the place and is there any buddhist temple which I must also visit?
5)Can I visit Ermeishan at this season, is Nov too cold to visit the temple? if it is not too cold, we intend to travel by ourselves and please advise
how to reach from our hotel.
6)Is there any vegetarian restaurant/stalls around my hotel and any wet market which I love to visit?

Thank You.

Chengdu Railway Station is nearer, but as I know, there are only two bullet trains to the station but more to Chengdu East. What’s more, it’s easier to get to your hotel from East Station. After arriving in East, you should take metro line 2 to Tonghuimen and leave from Exit A. Then walk west for 21 minute to Qintai Rd, walk south along the road for 5 minutes, you will see your hotel.

As for Q2, it’s interesting, since you’ve made a mistake that can make Chongqing people extremely angry—Chongqing is not part of Sichuan. But the food and snacks are almost same.

To Chunxi Rd: Take metro line 2 directly to Chunxi Rd.
To Jinli Street: no direct bus is available, you can take a taxi there, which costs around CNY15.
To the Alley: take metro line 2 and transfer to line 4 at CUTCM & People’s Hospital, and then get off at Wide and Narrow Alley.
To the market: walk west across Wenhua Park to Qingyanggong Bus Stop and take Bus 34 to North Railway Station, then walk east for 5 minutes.
To the Giant Panda Breeding Base: walk to Tonghuimen and take Bus 64, then transfer to Bus 655 at Zoo. At last, get off at Xiongmao Jidi.

Actually, it’s a little cold to the mountain but you can still pay a visit. You need to take metro line 2 to Chengdu East, and then take a bullet train to Emeishan, which takes about 1h 20 minutes and CNY78 for a first class seat, CNY65 for s second one. After that, take Emei Bus 12 directly to Baoguosi Temple in the mountain.

As for vegetarian restaurant, I happen to know one, Pusu Vegetarian Restaurant, in 24 Wide Alley, which is about 700 meters northeast to your hotel. But the nearest market is a little far, which is in 123 Xiaonan Street, about 1km southeast.
