From $227 per personFree Inquiry
Day 1 Visit the Panda Base, the Broad and Narrow Alley and the Jinsha Site Museum
Cuddly Pandas
This morning, your private guide and driver will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel at the appointed time, and then your 2 days Chengdu tour will start with a visit to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, which is located in a large forest with magnificent scenery. The pandas are more active in the morning till about 10:00 and after that some of them will go to sleep, therefore, we will set off early today. Upon arrival, you will have two to three hours to visit the research base under the company of your guide. According to the ages, the pandas are assigned to different enclosures (babies, teenagers, adults) and you will have opportunity to see them closely and take fantastic photos of them munching on bamboos, playing with each other or even climbing the trees.

Then let's turn to the Broad and Narrow Alley, an ancient street lined with many old houses and some newly-built ones in traditional styles. It is really fun to stroll along the street and find many interesting shops and authentic local restaurants. You may have your own lunch here and your guide is ready to offer you some advice, no matter what you want to eat, local speciality or western-style food.

After that, we will transfer you to visit the Jinsha Site Museum, which is a huge site museum combining history and archeology. There are total five exhibition halls displaying the culture of the ancient Shu Kingdom during the Shang and Zhou periods (17th century BC - 256 BC). The key highlights are the Golden Sun Bird, which is also the logo of Chengdu as well as the Golden Mask. Afterwards, we will transfer you back to your hotel.
Day 2 Visit the Leshan Giant Buddha
After picking you up from the hotel, we will drive to the Leshan Giant Buddha scenic area, which takes about two and a half hours on the way. The highlight today is to visit the 71-meter high Giant Buddha, which is the largest carving in the world. It was built through the efforts of three generations of the carvers from the year of 713 to 803 AD during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 AD). As the Buddha is carved on a cliff facing by the river bed, a boat tour will also be arranged to get the best view of this amazing statue. After finishing the Chengdu 2 days tour itinerary here, we will drive you back to your hotel in Chengdu.

Do you recommend the cruise around the Leshan Budha or to walk around?

I would say it is worth taking a boat cruise to see the Buddha from distance, which is probably the best view as you can get far enough back to appreciate his full size. You can also climb the narrow and seep stairs on either side to get a close up view, but it is usually crowded and very slow going, especially during holidays.

Upon landing, you can take shuttle bus line 1 and get to provincial gymnasium first. The bus will operate until the last flight arrival. After arriving, walk south along 4th Section of South Renmin Road around 500 meters to find your hotel.

Currently, there is no direct long-distance bus from Leshan. You are advised to take a coach from Leshan Passenger Transportation Center to Chengdu North Bus Station. The buses depart from 06:50 to 19:20 at intervals of around half an hour. Then take a taxi to Xinnanmen Bus Station. After arriving, you can find many direct shuttle bus to Jiuzhaigou Scenic Area. The bus schedules are 07:40, 08:00, 08:10, 08:20 and 08:30.

One day trip to Mt. Qingcheng and Jinsha site
Do you think our visit to Mt. Qingcheng and Jinsha site would be too much to do in one day?
Answers (1)
Answered by Diana | Jul. 20, 2016 03:13

Based on my experience, it is not too much for you to visit Mt. Qingcheng and Jinsha Site Museum in one day. For your information, usually it takes around 1.5 hours to drive from downtown to Mt. Qingcheng per single way. 2.5 hours is enough for you to visit the mountain by using the cable car. And the visiting time in Jinsha Site Museum is around 1.5 hours.
