Du fu's Cottage is said to be where this famous Chinese poet and lover lived 1000 years ago. Whether original or made over this cottage and the surrounding park are a wonderful place to spend an hour unwinding from the relentless crowds of Chinese tour sites. I enjoy an early morning walk through the garden to relax and to prepare... More

Although the ticket price of 60 yuan is quite expensive , I think it is worth it for admittance to such a beautiful place. It really is so peaceful and refreshes you by going.

Very interesting, and a nice walk around the park. Pretty flowers and lakes to gaze at. :) We first looked at the museum and saw some of the old finds, and we also made our way up to the top of the pagoda too (as pictured) - great views!

Gorgeous gardens, nice exhibitions, all in honor of a long dead poet. Full of middle class Chinese with summer vacationing kids in tow. Really made me appreciate the continuity of Chinese culture.

Du Fu was one of the most famous Chinese poet ever, and the selling point here is just that. However, the exhibits are too few and you will run out of things to do really fast. Still, if you are in the neighborhood, it's good to pay some homage to this person.

I had a great to!e walking around DuFu's Thatched Cottage. Pleasant scenery, some interesting statues, buildings and historical poetry. The picture of David Cameron walking around there ruined it a bit though! Enjoyed a nice Chengdu tea as well followed by Hot Pot afterwards in a nearby restaurant.

This is basically a memorial to the poet Dufu. In the museum you can see on display the old poetry books that were printed in traditional style & in different languages years ago. Students have also recently created sculptures based on the poetry itself which you can also see. Everything inside the grounds itself has been rebuilt here & it's... More

Du Fu was a famous poet in the 700s A.D. It is said his poems even influenced Japan in the old days. He served in the court. This cottage is where he took refuge during a war. The grounds are heavily wooded, lots of birds, pagodas and other interesting buildings. It is in a very peaceful area.

Went to the Dufu Cottage and enjoyed the gardens. Just east of the Cottage grounds is the Sichuan Museum and another nice park east of there. This area is calm and relaxed. Take your passport to get into the museum. Nice little 4 hour excursion.
