Q & A about Chengdu by Our Customers
Topic From: Jinli Old Street
Hi, I''m planning to visit Chengdu this coming November. I have long been attracted to your country''s beautiful history thus I want to go and see myself especially the Three Kingdom''s heritage and Zhuge Liang''s monument & shrine. May I know what is the weather like in early November, and what should I wear? I will have 5 days in Chengdu City, so within 5 days, which places should you recommend me to go? I also want to shop some souvenirs to bring back home. Need your assistance. Thank you.
Hi Seda,It is cool in November. The average highest temperature is around 16 °C (61 °F ) and the lowest temperature is about 10 °C (50 °C ). November rarely sees any rain, but is not dry because of the special climate of this city. The sky is cloudy and the sun rarely shines, so you may feel a bit cold. Long trousers and a coat will do, and wear socks most of the time to stay warm.Please click here to see more attractions in Chengdu and let me know if can help you to tailor make an itinerary for you: http://www.chinahighlights.com/chengdu/attraction/

Dear Yuba Raj Gurung,
You could take an overnight train from Chengdu to Beijing, it takes about 27 hours at least and it costs about CNY660/US$107 for the soft sleeper. If you think it is tired to take a train for a long time, you also could take a flight, it takes about 2.5 hours.

Topic From: Chengdu Transportation
Hello, I would like to go to Dazu from Chogqing in the morning and then got Chengdu by bus from there in the afternoon. Could you please tell me the bus timetable from Dazu to Chengdu. Also what is the address of long distance bus station in Dazu in Chinese and what is the name of arrival bus station in Chengdu for buses from Dazu. Thank you.
I checked the information on line and found out there are three buses from Dazu to Chengdu. It sets off at 9:00am, 13:00pm and 17:00pm. You could take the bus at Dazu new bus station(大足新汽车站（客运中心））and arrive at Chengdu Hehuachi bus station(荷花池汽车站）.
It takes about 4.5 hours and it costs about CNY85/US$14 per person.

hello, I plan to visit China in 2 weeks from today!! will it still be cold there or warm?! my stay will mainly be in Beijing and Chengdu! do you advice light or heavy clothes?
Hi Niama, it is warm in Beijing and Chengdu in April. A long sleeve shirt, a light sweater and a coat would cope with the weather.

If you need any tour service, we are very glad to offer an option.
Topic From: Jiuzhaigou Travel Guide
I''ll be touring Jiuzhaigou in Oct. Arrive in Chengdu on 10th Oct evening and leaving on 19th. How many days would you recommend to tour Jiuzhaigou National Park at a comfortable pace? If there''s time, I''m considering to go back to Chengdu to visit Emeishan or travel to Lhasa. Kindly advise. Also, I guess it''s quite easy to engage a guide at Jiuzhaigou airport? Because we prefer a personal guide that is flexible with itinerary
Hi Ai, for a tour to Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong, usually we suggest 3days 2nights for a comfortable pace.
No problem to visit Chengdu or Lhasa. Since April this year, there are no strict requirements on Tibet Permit application, so more and more people are successful to get approval to enter Tibet.
We are specializing in private tours. Our tour guide and driver will only be at your service during the tour. No others sharing.
I don't think it is easy to engage a guide at Jiuzhaigou airport, I suggest that you engage on in advance.

Hi Vickie, We can arrange the bus in each city. But between these places, bus is not recommended for transportation, as China is so big a country, usually we take flights for cities with long distance between such as Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Guilin.
