Perfect place for a stroll after a nicely spiced Sichuan meal! Like most Chinese gardens, this park offers lots of "hidden" spots that make it a joy to explore. Bamboos, stone landscape, koi pond, pagodas, majestic trees,...and the poems of Dufu; all the classic ingredients...More

This is a place of great cultural importance to the Chinese. It is beautiful, serene and historically interesting. May I suggest though that as a tourist, bone up on the poetry. There are English translations all over the net. His poetry is simple but evocative....More

I visited many gardens and parks al over China, but this one is just so beautiful and amazing. I spent 2 hours there and felt it was not enough. Full ticket price was 60 CNY.

If you like strolling around parks in relative peace, this is the place to come. First came here 10 years ago, but as it was raining we didn't stay long. Decided to give it another go and was amazed at how large it is. As...More

Du Fu was one of China's great poets and he lived in Chengdu for a few years. This is a lovely setting and t get the most out of a visit I would recommend using a guide.

Beautiful large garden with scenic views and huge ornamental goldfish swimming in pools. Lots of very old bonzais and various temples dedicated to DuFu poetry.

Well maintained garden. You may have some fresh air if you don't run into those smokers. Good place for foreign visitors with enough information about the place and display.

The cottage and the parks around are worth a visit. Quite, despite being in the middle of the city. Nice views, and when we were there, not too many people. Bring the kids.

This place is close by other interesting sites. It includes interactive exhibits with scenic green space and crafty shops. You gain perspective of a respectable poet from 700sAD and poor living condition of that period. The entry fee is RMB60 to any of two entrances...More

Hi! While most things are in Chinese and take a little more time to figure it, it's very possible. If you have an iPhone, it's actually very easy to figure out the bus routes even if you don't speak Chinese. Put in where... More
