Chengdu Sightseeing Bus

Chengdu sightseeing buses are convenient for independent travelers. They can take passengers to the most scenic spots in or near to Chengdu. Running directly between two appointed sites without stops, they are time-saving and more comfortable than regular city buses. However, the ticket is usually sold with the entry ticket to the scenic spots and sometimes with the guide service (bilingual in Chinese and English) onboard and inside scenic spots. However, it is better value than taking a taxi. Passengers can also take some of the lines for free at appointed times after buying the entry ticket to the attractions.

You are suggested to take a coach from Shiyangchang Coach Station to Leshan Central Coach Station first. The buses depart from 07:50 to 19:00. The ticket fare is CNY 46 per person. After arriving, take bus no.K1 to Jiadingfang Bus Stop. Then you can see the scenic area directly.

Chengdu Sightseeing bus?
Unsure how this works. If I get on at Shuangliu Airport Ticket Price 10 CNY can I get off at Jinli Street and then do I get back on at Jinli street to Peoples Park for 6CNY? Do they all go on the same route, so I can hop on and off during the day?

Take Metro Line 10 from the airport to Taipingyuan Station and then transfer to Metro Line 3 to 2nd People's Hospital. Get out of the Exit A and walk southwest about 500m to the hotel.
