      Hey people. I'm in Chengdu with my girlfriend at the moment, and we are looking for something fun to do, that ain't the typical "oh go see peoples park" or "look at something really chinese" - No we want to have fun. Bowl, swim, skate - whatever. Something funny for people who lives here as well. Do you have any suggestions to what we might be able to do ?

    • Jiuzhaigou Region in April

      Jiuzhaigou 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?

I know the road is very long between Suzhou & Zigong, that's why I excluded automobile or bus transportation.

    • A guide for Chengdu?

      Chengdu Jan 20, 2013 at 1:40 PM


      We are staying 2 nights at the Nova Travelling Lodge with the express intention of seeing the pandas at the research centre. We have not booked a guide as, having lots of research, we feel we can do this part of the trip by ourselves.
      We will be arriving at the railway station and getting a taxi to the hotel.We would like to go to the Sichuan Opera in the evening and see the pandas the following day. I have tried to contact the hotel to find out if they can book a cab for these experiences but have had my e mail pinged back. Is this doable without a guide?
      Quite happy to hire a guide but if we can save some money by not doing so then even better!
      Any advice appreciated.

      Bus from Chengdu to Jiuzhaigou

      Chengdu Aug 18, 2012 at 10:03 PM

      Hi, going to Jiuzhaigou with mom from Chengdu this coming Sept, and plan to go by bus. Kinda worry about the long hour journey and bus condition.

      Appreciate inputs on following :-

      1. Bus from Xinnanmen, how is the bus condition ? Is seat assigned or free seating ? Can the seat be declined or adjusted ?

      2. Bus from Xinnanmen is run by different companies, e.g we can choose the type of bus like how many seater bus ?

      3. Other than the frequent bus from Xinnanmen, is there other option like tourist centre's with better bus ?

      Many thanks.

      12 days Chengdu-Emei-JiuZhaiGou-ShangHai

      Chengdu Jul 28, 2012 at 10:06 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I have 12 days in China in September and intend to plan a trip as follow. Hope you can give me some advise because there are many details:

      1Sep: arrive Chengdu around 13:10, find hostel nearby (maybe Sims Cozy), evening walk around, see Sichuan face changing show.

      2Sep: take bus to Leshan, enjoy Leshan and take bus to Mt Emei, look for hotel on top of Mt. Emei, spend the nite.

      3Sep: Up early for sunrise, enjoy other parts of Mt Emei on the way down (Baoguo Monastery, Fuhu Monastery, Xiujia Fall, First Pavilion). Afternoon, visit Huanglongxi Old Town and go back go Chengdu.

      4Sep: Morning visit Giant Panda. Evening Jinli Street and other nearby streets.

      5Sep: Take bus to Jiuzhaigou, whole day on bus

      6th & 7th Sep: Jiuzhaigou - Huanglong

      8th: Whole day bus back to Chengdu.

      9Sep: fly to Shanghai and stay there until 12Sep.

      I wonder how many hours it takes to enjoy Leshan on 2 Sep, afraid it takes long time and when we reach Mt Emei it's already eveningtime. Next morning we may not have enough time for Mr. Emei. Is that the case?

      Will 2 ways bus back and forth between Chengdu and Jiuzhaigou too much to bear? Should we opt for 1 way flight and 1 way bus instead, that way we will be less tired and have more time in the park? Should we do choose bus route from Chengdu to Jiuzhaigou or the other way around?

      Phew, that's a lot of info. Hope you guys can help me. Thanks!

      Sichuan Sheng Jun 10, 2012 at 7:00 AM

      I have booked 2 and a half days in Chengdu. But on reading the forum I feel that I am missing out on the spectacular Jiuzhaigou. I have 3 days in Xi'an. I am wondering if it is worth changing flights to get an extra day in Jiuzhaigou and if it is viable to see the Pandas, Leshan and E.shan mountain in 3 days. Or am I being too ambitious.
