Do you know anyone going to Zigong Dino Park tomorrow.... I need a ride there on 9 oct 11
Hi Nick, this is Nora, a trip advisor of China Highlights. Are you in Beijing now? I'm afraid we don' know anyone who will drive from Beijing to Zigong. As the distance is over 2000 km, it will take 1-2 days by car. There is another option: flight. You could take flight from Beijing to Chengdu first and then take bus from Chengdu to Zigong. Wish you a nice trip! Nora Ou replied on 2011-10-08
