Our guide was informative. It was one of many places we visited and I believe that Du Fu was a famous Chinese poet of his time
the place is ok. I am not a history guy so the building were boring to me for the most part and the fact that there were not much to see in them. i gave this place 3 stars because the garden is very scenic. the garden alone is worth going to.
This is the Chengdu home of the revered poet of the Tang dynasty who lived in this city for only a few years. Here he wrote many of his poems that made him the “sage of the people” the highlight of this site is the extensive restful gardens with many streams, ponds, forests and walkways. It is a true refuge... More
You have to be a fan of the poet to care about this, it is just a tiny little cottage with a thatched roof and not even decorated with what would have been his things. Also the grounds are huge and very horrible marked, so I spent probably an hour and a half walking in circles trying to find the... More
The site has rebuilt cottages in the style that the famous poet lived and wrote poetry in. The remains of the original site are also there. The grounds have beautiful gardens that are well maintained. It's a lovely place for an afternoon or morning walk.
The cottage itself is a reproduction based on what they assume to have been here previously, but don't let this spoil it for you. The history of the site contains archeological remains of the original house, as well as original foundations for pagodas uncovered during refurbishments. The gardens are the standout feature and are beautiful and well kept. Lots of... More
Du fu seems all too unrealistic. Although the park can be a nice to place to stroll to hide away from the noisy traffic of the city. Its not relatively cheap for the entrance (60RMB). I wonder if the locals enter for free as there were a few locals that dressed shabbily walking around and peeing in the public (not... More
To visit this beautiful area of gardens in the middle of a modern city, gave me the feeling that the history of the world and especially China has to be seen, t think that a building built 417 BC could possibly still be standing is incredible, it is a must for all to see and feel the ambience of the...

We found this fascinating and even though it was wet enjoyed walking through the gardens. The cottage was basic but in a very interesting setting. It would inspire anyone to write.
A beautiful setting with very relaxing gardens. Exhibition was very informative and the cottage was fascinating, although not actually the 1400 year old original which was destroyed centuries ago. Sadly, none of his poems were displayed in English (most signage was dual language ) and no translations were available in the book shop. An excellent afternoon for relaxing.
