There is no airplane from Chengdu or Chongqing to Neijiang. It is suggested to take high speed train from West Chongqing Railway Station to North Neijiang Railway Station. It departs from 6:36 to 20:40 with interval of 20-40 minutes.

Answered by Shelly from CANADA | Oct. 23, 2014 00:58

Yes, there are some. I met a woman in the NJ Normal University. She said that she taught English there.

As I know, this city has no golf course and the closest one is in Zigong, around 35mi away. It is Guanyin Lake, Xisheng Golf International Club, at Yantan District, Yong'an Town, Zigong.
Answered by Matthias from AUSTRIA | Oct. 23, 2014 05:41

great to hear. I looked up the net for the golf course, but could not find anything. do you have maybe an email or web page?
Answered by Shelly | Oct. 26, 2014 20:12

Sorry, I have no idea of the contact or link of the course, but it seems that it is famous in that area. You can ask a local person about it when you arrive. Good luck!
