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 Porto

Book your flights to Porto with Etihad Airways and immerse yourself in the old-world charm of one of Portugal’s oldest cities.

Plan Your Porto Holiday

Anyone interested in beautiful architecture and striking landscapes should make plans to travel to Porto at least once in their lives. The charming Zona Ribeirinha boardwalk will captivate you with its waterfront ambiance and quaint shops and restaurants. Get swept up in the breath-taking majesty of the Serralves Foundation, a priceless heritage estate consisting of a museum, villa, and gardens. Travellers craving activity can catch an exciting football game at the Estádio do Dragão, or tour the shops at Rua Santa Catarina.

Weather in Porto is generally temperate, with gentle, warm summers, and mild winters. While there is no bad time to visit, we recommend you book your tickets to Porto in the summer and experience the variety of unique cultural festivals in May and June. Alternatively, travellers may want to avoid this period in favour of smaller crowds and better prices, as cheap hotels in Porto will be easier to locate in winter months. Whenever you travel, don’t forget to visit the deals section of our website for all the best flight deals to Porto.
