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. Make sure to visit our Deals section to find flight deals to Chengdu throughout the year.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Doha

Book your flights to Doha with Etihad Airways and experience the Arabian desert in a novel and unique way, exploring a city which is every bit cosmopolitan and yet still remains close to its roots.

Plan Your Doha Holiday

Doha is a traveller’s paradise. You can travel to Doha and take a desert safari and cruise along its glorious sand dunes. If you enjoy exploring the seas then board a traditional dhow boat or hire a yacht and have a view of the Corniche riding the waves. You can also spend some time at the Barzan Olympic Park to have an unusual recreation and relaxation experience.

Doha is located in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula desert and has long scorching summers. Cheap hotels in Doha are readily available during the peak summer months. The best time for you to visit the city is between October and May. The winter months are more comfortable and activities are more readily available. If you are contemplating a visit during the holy month of Ramadan to experience the festivities, you must book your tickets to Doha early. Finding the best flight deals to Doha is easy on the Deals section of our website.
