开心玫瑰2021Check-in early near the scenic spot is beneficial to the play time of the next day. The first tourists on the first day of the next day can see the most active time of the giant panda. In addition, there are not many tourists in the scenic spot. They stroll through the vegetation-rich scenic spot, cool and pleasant, which is a good place for summer. The overall staircase width of the scenic spot is not big. It is not tired to walk up and down. Finally, take the 99th floor elevator to the entrance, which is very good. You can visit the Bifeng Gorge and the Panda Pavilion in 4 hours. In the afternoon, you can go to the nearby Shangli Ancient Town. [View]

jerry_wongThe two big and one small group, 99 yuan, but also to make up 110 yuan fierce beast sightseeing car on the spot, compared with 180 yuan, the original price is still cheaper, but that fierce beast sightseeing car is mandatory consumption, a little pit, a total of very short road, through the tiger, lion, bear area, more than 10 minutes end. The line is well planned after entering the group, no back roads, three shows along the way, four hours to visit, unfortunately no pandas, have to buy tickets in another area

_ZF***45It is convenient to buy tickets online. I have been there several times, and I have deepened my impression. I went to the cable car and climbed to the Red Army Memorial Hall at the top. In recent years, red tourism has become popular. It is very good. I don't forget the history to go straight ahead. I bought drinks at the self-service shopping machine at the top of the mountain. I can only say the network on the mountain is too bad.

M47***70The scenery is great, especially beautiful. When you go, you take a sightseeing car for 20 yuan per person. You can walk down and experience the scenery along the way. Local staff are very enthusiastic to introduce the local culture. Have the opportunity to come again 😊.

M29***14God base - Davaganza, believe that many friends are taking this route, I this travel book mainly to the friends who do not drive, self-driving can pass. The first day by car from Ya'an to Baoxing and then to Tongxiang, everything is very smooth, get off the car from the entrance of the Shenmulei scenic spot only a few hundred meters away, walk to. Tickets are about 50 people, there is a sightseeing car in the door, 20 on the mountain, 10r down the mountain, everyone can judge by their own situation whether to sit or not (it is best to decide on the beginning, the half-way traffic will not stop, the service attitude of the scenic spot staff is quite general). The scenery is quite good, especially after going up the mountain, there is a feeling of not being a trip. The nightmare started after going down the mountain. The scenic spot is closed at 5:30. When we went down the mountain, it was about 6 o'clock. We wanted to go to Dava Gengza for a night and get up early the next morning to see the sunrise. However, there is no car, there is no direct car, only private chartered car, ten kilometers of road, the driver here will charge us one hundred and two people, can be said to be killed Ming. Can't, Trip.com found the hotel to call someone to pick up (this is my own lack of a good strategy, everyone has learned a lesson), finally, at 7 o'clock on the car to Dawa Gengza, is also paid, but the price is relatively reasonable. (The hotel I am looking for is also very pit, everyone must remember to book the hotel in advance and contact the boss to pick up and drop off problem). The first bus to the mountain at around 3 o'clock the next day is a bit early, the sunrise is about 6 o'clock, everyone is reasonable to leave at 4 o'clock (if there are many people). Luckily, just got off the bus when it rained heavily, I thought this time was a lonely, but did not expect to be clear at five o'clock, we actually saw this rare sunrise in June, only the beauty can comfort the heart of this difficult journey. Going down the mountain around 7 o'clock, after going down the mountain, I started to find the car of Baoxing, the old thing is repeated, yes, there is no car. Asked the small shop next to the scenic spot, private car, 80 people to Baoxing. Ah, it's a huge financial burden for a poor student, so we found a few driver contact information, the driver here can let the hotel owner help find, the back 40 people ( double the difference), we took a car back to Baoxing. In addition, things are expensive on the mountain and down the mountain, 5 yuan a bun, 25 a share of noodles, and there are no restaurants here, everyone can bring some food, take some. The scenery is really beautiful, the price is really expensive, the service is really pit. I hope that Ya'an City Government can at least perfect the traffic here! Leave a little travel experience for tourists who don't have cars or are far away. PS: Better go with the group. Better go with the group without a car. Finally, share the beauty.
