Plan Your Chengdu Visit

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.

Interested in Chengdu? Consider Belfast

Book your flights to Belfast with Etihad Airways, pack your luggage, and get ready to discover the city famous for having the most character in Ireland. Perfectly preserved castles, a lively cultural calendar, and parks filled with wildlife and beautiful scenery are waiting for you.

Plan Your Belfast Holiday

One of the reasons to travel to Belfast is its amazing and unique architecture. Explore the Belfast Castle, a rare example of 19th century Scottish architecture; visit the adorable St. George’s Market, a spectacular Victorian-style structure; wander The Argory, a neoclassical gem; and marvel at the futuristic form of Titanic Belfast.

For those less interested in architecture, you can attend a show at the Lyric Theatre; play golf on one of Belfast’s seven golf courses; enjoy the several species of wild flowers that cover the fields of Barnett Demesne; or scale McArt’s Fort, an imposing mountain basalt. To get the most out of outdoor activities, the best season to buy tickets to Belfast is summer. Due to the low volume of tourists, it is easy to find cheap hotels in Belfast.
