Chengdu Sightseeing Bus: Chengdu
sightseeing buses are convenient for independent travelers.
They can take passengers to the most scenic spots in or near
to Chengdu. Running directly between two appointed sites
without stops, they are time-saving and more comfortable than
buses. However, the ticket is
usually sold with the entry ticket to the scenic spots and
sometimes with the guide service (bilingual in Chinese and
English) onboard and inside scenic spots. However, it is
better value than taking a taxi. Passengers can also take some
of the lines for free at appointed times after buying the
entry ticket to the attractions.
