You can just book such a tour through Travelchinaguide at

In late June, it will be a little bit hot in Chengdu. You may just pack summer clothes. I advise you pay attention to the weather forecast of Chengdu later to make a good preparation for that.

Yes, it is already very cold there and should be snowy there. Huanglong will be closed since Nov16, generally, sometimes on Dec 1. So you may miss it. Also, you may not see leaves turn red and yellow, they have gone by then. But the winter scenery in Jiuzhaigou is also very beautiful. Keep warm if you will go.

Hi, I need advice on train or air travel from Guangzhou (or Shenzhen) to Chengdu. How long? How much? Which would you pick? Thanks in advance!

Answered by Mr.Qi from CHINA | May. 02, 2009 01:42

I will choose air. It will take 30 hours from Guangzhou to Chengdu and the ticket price is over 600 for soft sleeper. As far as I know, there is no direct train from Shenzhen to Chengdu. The air ticket is at the similar price as the soft sleeper.
