It is known to all that the best time to have a trip to Jiuzhaigou is October, but just keep in mind that there will be very visitors during that time, especially if you go there during the Chinese National Holiday from 1st -7th October, so if you time is flexible, just avoid the crowded period.
As for how to visit Jiuzhaigou, there are many sayings on the Internet, such as which ditch to go first, which ditch to go to finally, etc. In fact, my personal opinion is that, unless you plan to visit for 2 days, if you only have 1 day, then don’t think too much, go directly to the sightseeing car. Jiuzhaigou is full of beautiful scenery. Moreover, the main reason is that there are many people in the sightseeing station. When the car comes, it will be crowded. The car is said to be dispatched on-site, and it is not specified which ditch to go through. It may first park in the tiger sea of Shuzhenggou, then get off to view the scenery, and continue to get on the bus. (The scenic spot tourist center has a sightseeing car map, which is free of charge, the label is very clear on which site can be get on and get off, etc.)
If you want to go to the primeval forest, wait for the car at the place where you get off (some cars can go directly to the primeval forest, but it is depending on your luck).
Believe that the hard work of 1 day in Jiuzhaigou is worthwhile. There are many things in Jiuzhaigou that are worthy of your recollection.
- About lunch: Inside the scenic spot, there is a restaurant called Nuorilang, and there are some small vendors selling food nearby, all of which are 15 yuan. It is recommended that if you plan to eat instant noodles, don’t go to NuoriLang, there are too many people.
- It is recommended not to bring instant noodles into the scenic area unless you bring your own hot water. The scenic area does not provide hot water, so it is useless to bring it in.
