Whats fun, in a non-touristy way?  (1 Answer)

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 ?

A guide for Chengdu?  (6 Answers)

Hi,

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.

12 days Chengdu-Emei-JiuZhaiGou-ShangHai  (2 Answers)

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!

Pandas & Valleys & Mountains, oh my!  (18 Answers)

Planning another trip to china in September 2011 with good ol' ma and the first-run draft of our itinerary has us in Huangshan for a couple night then a flight to Chengdu on the way to Pingyao (via TaiYuan airport). Heard Chengdu was close to some pretty amazing scenery which I know I gotta photograph. So, how many days will I ABSOLUTELY need to cover ONE of the 2 panda sanctuaries (just need to shoot them (with camera), not hold them, thanks!), Emeishan, Leshan Buddha, and oh let's throw in Jiuzhaigou, for good measure. Have I missed anything? I was going to stay 2 nights in Chengdu, so what can I cover in 1 full day from dawn to dusk if I try to hire a private car & guide (I'm sure it can be done, right?). Can I cover it all in 2 full days (dawn to dusk)? It's pretty crazy but that's how I travel, mach-9...Ideas?
