Hi, i am stopping in chengdu for at least two days on my way to tibet and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good hostel to stay at. I have looked at mix hostel and sims, but am not aware of any other good ones.
I need one that can sort tibet permits and train tickets to lhasa in advance as well if possible.
Also, what things are there to do in and around chengdu (day trips) aside the opera and the pandas?
Thanks in advance and happy travels guys,
Hi, when are you going to Tibet?
We are going in may 2007.
We are also searching information for chengdu to lhasa adn finding out things for the permit.
I saw this site: http://www.accesstibettour.com/train-railway.html
maybe it will help you,
Lieke and Naomi
Hey, im gonna be going in early march time. I know that sims guesthouse can sort out the permit and train tickets, so i might end up going through them. Otherwise, the mix hostel can organise the permit, and judging by th fact that all their tours are cheaper, i guess they might be able to do the train tickets cheaper as well. I am awaiting a reply from them regarding these prices,
I can recommend the mix hostel, it is a cool place to hang out and helpful in making travel arrangements. i was there for 2 weeks and had a great time. enjoy chengdu, pete
