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.

We really felt as if we had gone back in time - a quiet lovely peaceful place to visit and so impressive a building. Lovely grounds to walk in.

It is a lovely garden, with the requisite ponds, pagodas and bridges. We were there about 11:30 in the mornings. A man was playing a flute in one waterside pagoda, and it was a gem of a vacation moment. Go early, and on a week-day. Pretend the sky is blue and decompress

We wanted to have a nice and quiet day, just to walk in the park and no rushing. It was a perfect place for that! The park and buildings were well kept and everything was clean and nice. We got student discount so the ticket was 48 RMB/person. We drank tea in the park and the ear cleaning master tried... More

If you want to have a quiet time in busy Chengdu, Du Fu Cottage is the place to be. Tea houses, gardens, monuments give you the opportunity to escape in another reality for a little while ...
