    • Jiuzhaigou Region in April

      by malcolmcrdavies Online Now Jul 23, 2015 at 5:34 PM

      We have been told that March to April is low season in Jiuzhaigou. Only 5 star and several 4 stars hotels are open. The others will be closed to the end of April. Also there is only basic service in the area.

      Is it still possible to go to Jiuzhaigou region in April (2016) or is it better to go later in the year? We know that the walking tracks may be closed but is it still possible to get public buses to/from the park area and are they regular? Also do the buses within the park still run?

Also any feedback from members who have taken such a road trip recently is also greatly appreciated

      A few friends and I are visiting JZG and are debating over the Intercontinental and the Sheraton. From our understanding, the Intercontinental is a much newer property and seems to be much nicer. However, it seems that there are many negative reviews and the property is much further than the Sheraton from the park entrance. Has anyone stayed at both properties and can comment on which choice we should make?

      by puzzles.10 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 2:08 AM


      4 of us will be travelling from Chengdu to JZG on 22 Oct 2010, would appreciate any advice on the following:

      Our flight will arrive at about 8am and after a 2 hour drive to hotel we would only probably get to the park at about 12 noon. Is this a good time (12 noon)to arrive at the park or will it be too congested.
      Because of the limited time, I think we should do the left side of the park on the first day and do the right side on the second day.

      On the third day, we will head to Huanglong and then head to the airport for our flight at 7.20pm.

      Is this plan workable? Or is it too rush?

      Also I have read and the reviews for both Sheraton and Intercontinental are just terrible. Can anyone suggest a clean, comfortable hotel in JZG?

      Many thanks
