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 Stockholm

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Stockholm and prepare yourself for one of Europe’s most incredible gems of a destination. Romantic canals, medieval castles surrounded by idyllic gardens, and an archipelago of beautiful islands are just some of the many facets that will catch your eye and make you appreciate this wonderful city.

Plan Your Stockholm Holiday

There are dozens of reasons to travel to Stockholm: delighting in the romantic charm of its canals, seeing some of Europe’s most impressive historical sites, or perhaps letting your imagination run wild in its fairy-tale castles. So when you buy your tickets to Stockholm, don’t just limit yourself to the abundance of attractions within the confines of the city. In the Tyresta National Park you'll find nature trails through the forests of pine trees, and Grinda has beaches perfect for a relaxing summer day.

With Etihad Airways you can find great flight deals to Stockholm and experience all these adventures for yourself. High season is during the summer months so it will be more difficult to find cheap hotels in Stockholm then; the best alternatives for travel are the months of April to June as well as October and November.
