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.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Copenhagen

Book your flights to Copenhagen with Etihad Airways and prepare to fall in love with an amazing city.

Plan Your Copenhagen Holiday

Combining stunning cityscapes, world-class cuisine and a passion for innovation, Copenhagen is a charming blend of history and the modern world and is guaranteed to delight. Walk along the cobblestone streets of the old town, infused with the memories of the royals, for a taste of the city's fairytale past; or wander the shops to see why Copenhagen's style has made it the Scandinavian fashion capital.

The best time to travel to Copenhagen is during the warmer months between May and August, but if you're looking for cheap hotels in Copenhagen then it's worth organising your trip well in advance. This is true for booking your tickets to Copenhagen too as the summer months are the peak tourist season. Like the rest of Denmark, seasons here are well defined and the vibrancy seen during the summer months is more subdued and relaxed during the winter. However, many travellers may enjoy the Christmas markets seen stretched along the city's riverbanks, filled with traditional Danish foods and crafts. Check out our Deals section to find flight deals to Copenhagen all year round.
