not as crowded as other parks and very enjoyable to walk around. The park is not overly large and easily accessible by metro or taxi. There are 3 entrances so it is very convenient, depending which direction you are coming from. There are numerous gift shops within the park and surprisingly the prices quoted are not exorbitant like other touristy... More

Dufu Thatched Cottage is my favorite sightseeing in Chengdu. I like poems written by Dufu. He is one of the greatest poets in Chinese history, who is called the master of Chinese poetry, and his life was full of frustrations. Dufu Thatched Cottage is the house of Dufu when he was moving in Chengdu, and here he wrote about 240... More

An interesting place - a lot of it was unavailable because of construction work, but still an interesting place to visit. Thatched cottages, lots of examples of his poetry

Whilst surrounded by busy roads, its quiet and peaceful in the grounds. Plenty to see, so allow enough time to just sit and relax, as well as study the exhibits.

A visit to Du Fu's cottage is a nice way to send a quiet couple of hours. Lovely grounds na slots to see including much local art work but also very peaceful and green in an often noisy and crowded city.

Didn't expect too much originally. Du Fu only stayed in Chengdu for 4 years so didn't know why his old house will become an attraction. But the garden maintains and designs very well. The bamboos in the garden are beautiful. To our surprises we enjoy the visit a lot.

Interesting place to visit and beautiful grounds. Lots of hidden gems and history in this place. Would recommend researching some of its history prior to your visit as limited English translations. Worth a visit, very peaceful place.

One of the must visit sites in Chengdu, Du Fu's Cottage commemorates one of the most famous poets in the Tang Dynasty. The house is big with well kept gardens and is a good place to spend a couple of hours reminiscing his poems and life as a humanitarian champion of the poor. However this is NOT the house Du...

The cottage is quite big that I spent more than an hour walking inside. It is good to know more about the history of Dufu, and see some traditional art presented inside the Cottage.

It's a bit out from the centre of Chengdu, but well worth the modest taxi fare. Du Fu was a C8 writer, famous in China. He stayed in Chengdu for few years and his residence has been rebuilt/restored. Signs are in Chinese, English and Korean. Signs are plentiful so it's easy to find your way around without a guide but... More
