Most popular request…

Most guests hope to visit Giant Pandas, and some of them even want a good chance to get close to Giant Panda. The Experience Team provides guests with special sites exploration, and routes includes Qingcheng Mountain, Dujiangyan, Wolong, Leshan, and other nearby sites. The most popular request that we could satisfy is Six Senses Spa.

Favourite locale when enjoying a day off…
My favourite locales are my home, the shopping mall and the yoga room.

Best coffee…

Most of local people prefer tea, and QingCheng Mountain is famous for its tea base, so I have no idea where is the best coffee in this city. If you want, I think the square bar and the western restaurant would be a good choice.

Where we must go for lunch…

Six Senses provides various high quality meals for guests. The food in the Chinese restaurant is full of local character. The Thai restaurant offers traditional Thai food, and most of our guests enjoy their meals there. Besides the food in SSQCM, the Jie Zi Ancient Town is the second choice where guests could taste local snacks.


It’s a rainy day outside but we want to explore, what we should do

Rainy days are the best time to visit Giant Pandas, because they are extremely active and energetic.

An absolute must-do or must-see before leaving…

Guests should: Enjoy the local food (Hot Pot); explore nearby scenery including Qingcheng Mountain, Dujiangyan, Wolong, Leshan; learn local culture; and practice Tai Chi at Puzhao Temple.

What she loves about her hotel…

I love the traditional architectural style, the great landscaping, Tom Yam Gong in Sala Thai, the afternoon tea, and the organic garden. The most special one is the Six Senses Spa.

Anything else we should know when visiting…

Firstly, bring your umbrella and warm clothes with you, since we have rainy and cold weather in autumn and winter. Secondly, Sichuan cuisine is famous for its spicy taste, and you should remind the chef if you can’t stand spicy food. Thirdly, you should know that it takes about 60 minutes from the ShuangLiu international Airport to SSQCM when there is no traffic jam.
