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.

Plan Your Cork Holiday

Travel to Cork and surround yourself with awe-inspiring natural beauty that is, by itself, worthy of your visit. Rent a bicycle and forge your own path through the rolling hills, spend a day or two on one of Cork’s immaculate golf courses, or try your hand at some freshwater fishing in the River Lee or River Blackwater. Cork contains a number of charming markets, including the Old English Market and the Coal Quay Market, and no trip to Cork would be complete without a trip to kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, one the most impressive castles in Ireland.

Many of the attractions available in the city are best enjoyed in warm weather. We recommend travellers book their tickets to Cork between May and September. If you’re looking for cheap hotels in Cork, you can push your travel period into spring or autumn, and you will also enjoy the benefit of smaller crowds.
