Arriving in Chengdu

Set amid forests and bodies of water, Chengdu is a miracle of historical preservation mixed with progressive planning. Book your flights to Chengdu with Etihad Airways and get ready to embark on an adventure into Chinese culture and excitement that few other cities in China can match.

Plan Your Chengdu Visit

There are countless reasons to travel to Chengdu. Marvel at the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest Buddha statue, cut directly into a wall of red rock. Wander through the Huanglong Scenic Area considered by some to be "A Fairyland on Earth.” Get lost in Chengdu history in one of its many ancient towns. Indulge in a Chinese feast provided by one of Chengdu’s renowned restaurants. Be enthralled at a Sichuanese opera performance.

The peak season in Chengdu runs from March through May. We recommend you reserve your tickets to Chengdu several months in advance if you wish to travel during this busy part of the year. To find cheap hotels in Chengdu, consider travelling in the off-season (December through February) when weather conditions are not as sunny but crowds much smaller.

Major Airports in Senegal

Senegal’s main and only major international airport is located in the capital: Dakar-Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport (DKR). Renamed in 1996 for the first president of Senegal, it serves upwards of 1.5 million travellers a year and is often used as a stopover point for flights to South Africa as well as having served historically as an important cargo depot.

Airport Transportation in Senegal

Taxis to Dakar International Airport should be readily available throughout the city and will take around 20 minutes, though it is important to be careful to use a trustworthy service. This shouldn’t be too expensive and can even be bargained down to a lower price. Cost and travel time will vary based on what part of the city you are staying in. There are also bus links to Dakar International Airport from the city centre, which leave regularly and should take no more than an hour. At the present time there is no train to Dakar International Airport.
