Luzhou Airport is the second largest airport in Sichuan. The airport is about 8 kilometers (5 miles) southwest of the city proper operating flights to Beijing, Guangzhou, Kunming and Guiyang.
In the city proper, there are seven long-distance bus stations in total. Along with these, bus stations in other areas also operate buses to big cities such as Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, or counties within the city. Luzhou is about three hours' drive from Chengdu and only one hour and a half to Chongqing.
Enjoying a subtropical humid climate, the city is warm in spring and autumn, hot in summer and cool in the winter. Due to topographic influence, climate in southern Luzhou varies in different regions ranging from temperate climate to subtropical climate. Droughts and rainstorms may occur in summer.
With pleasant climate, luxuriant vegetation and beautiful scenery, the ancient town attracts many directors to make films and serial shows, making it become a well-known 'Film-Video City in Southern Sichuan'.
Luzhou is a tourist destination; specific scenic spots include Yuchan in Luxian county, Fobao in Hejiang county, Mt. Fangshan in Jiangyang county, the litchi and longan orchard along the Yangtze River and Tuojiang River, and many others. With the official approbation of the National Ministry of Forestry, Fobao Forest Park became a National Forestry Park and was classified as an “AAA” tourist attraction in 2001 by National Tourism Administration.
