Banyan Tree recently opened a new property in northern Sichuan province, named Banyan Tree 3 Jiuzhaigou. The retreat is nestled at the foot of a spectacular mountain and offers an exclusive sanctuary of 209 guestrooms and suites, all with unhindered views of the mountain or valley from their balconies. There is plenty to keep visitors occupied as the hotel is just a 45 minute drive from the UNESCO World Heritage Jiuzhaigou National Park. The park is located in the heart of the Aba autonomous prefecture, and is famous for its ethereal landscape of clear pools, waterfalls and limestone terraces.
Jiuzhaigou National Park is also the focus of a new three day itinerary offered by Destination Asia China. Departing from Chengdu, the program connects guests to these idyllic landscapes that are considered so enchantingly beautiful, they must be seen to be believed.
