Things to Do in April

April is the best month to see flowers and gardens.

In April, the weather turns fair, and its a good time to see outdoor attractions and go to the street markets.

The Tianpeng Peony Festival begins in April, letting you enjoy China's national flower on a large scale, and many folk activities.

Jinli Old Street: This shopping street is only about 350 meters long, but you can find Chinese theater, folk artists, people making and selling their art and crafts, snacks, folk music, and celebrations of traditional festivals. There are tea shops and souvenir stores. It is popular with foreign tourists; 

Dufu thatched cottageFamous poet Dufu's Thatched Cottage

Dufu's Thatched Cottage: Dufu was a famous poet from the times of the Tang Dynasty (618–907). It is thought he settled down in this location before he died, and the area is now a park and temple. His simple, poignant poems are beloved by Chinese, and it is a very popular heritage site.

There is a large garden park of about 15 hectares (37 acres). Its a place to enjoy natural beauty and relax and contemplate. But if that isn't what you'd want to do, there are many other attractions that would be better.

April is in the peak travel season.

Chengdu is already at its busiest with respect to travelers during April, and tourist attractions are crowded. Discounts on hotel rooms and flights are difficult to find. Train tickets may be difficult to get, are a hassle if you're standing in long lines, and are more expensive than usual. There is an easier way. Plan your trip in advance, and let us help you get discounted room rates and tickets.
