China Trip – Jiuzhaigou (Day 4: Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park)

After a much deserved rest, we woke up early the next morning to visit Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park. Just like our trip to Xi’an, we were fortunate to visit another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our lodging was just a few minutes away from the foot of the national park. It took us arouund 15-20 minutes to get there.

From the moment you reach the entrance, you will see hundreds of tourists. Unlike Xi’an, the tourists here are predominantly Chinese.Β This is something I admire greatly about China. They are proud of their own culture and heritage.

Access around the park is very convenient as there are hop-on hop-off buses in every attraction. Lines get long though at certain stops. Walking around is very convenient as the roads are well-paved. Access to the attractions have wooden pathways. It blends very well with the natural scenery.

There’s really no need for me to explain how magnificent this place is…

As much as we wanted to visit each stop, it wasn’t doable during our trip due to the hundreds (or even thousands) of visitors during this time.

I am definitely impressed with how beautiful Jiuzhaigou is. Some even suggests to visit Jiuzhaigou in every season as each has it’s own unique charm. It was between spring and fall when we visited.

Our whole day was dedicated to the National Park. We just grabbed some beer and street food along the way to cap off our night.
