“Chengdu, Here I Come Contest” Week 1 begins today!


By Daphne

You saw it on our Facebook & Twitter status updates last Friday, so here it is! AirAsia’s latest destination is Chengdu, China and believe it or not, YES, you can now fly DIRECT from Kuala Lumpur to breathtaking Chengdu with AirAsia!

We’re giving you the chance to discover this place which has so much to offer, by letting you tell us what your dream vacation would be like in Chengdu. But you’re not sure of what is there to do in Chengdu, you say? Don’t worry, we’re posting up pictures of things to do & places to go to guide you (but a tad bit of research on Chengdu by yourself would help heaps too!).

So, what do you need to do to win these THREE pairs of Return Flight Tickets to Chengdu? Send us blog entries and simply tell us what your dream vacation would be like in Chengdu based on the pictures that we posted in this blog entry. The story that amuses us, excites us and makes us feel like, “Whoa, we so wanna go to Chengdu with you!!” will win the contest. (Do check out the Terms & Conditions below, though :D)

This contest will run for three weeks, with different pictures posted up by us each week. So remember to keep a lookout on all our social media channels :)

Ready, get set, go (and savour the pictures & send us some kick ass entries!!)… here are the pictures:
