It was wonderful to see green space in the middle of so many people and so much concrete. While I know nothing about the poet, nor do I speak or read Chinese it was nice to walk around the grounds and enjoy some time in nature, even I was surrounded by people.

Unlike many other memorial halls of famous people, this one has so much to offer. In addition to the artifacts of Dufu's home, you may see a complete introduction of the poet's life and his work. The government even rebuild the memorial hall according to Dufu's poem. I believe this place is highly cultural valuable! Please do make sure you... More

I work nearby this spot and have only ventured into it once, which for myself was enough. Considering the entrance fee and that it's not different than a lot of the other parks around town I wouldn't make it a top priority. If you're in the area and want to relax in a nice green space with some history behind... More

The actually cottage is a very minor part of the grounds in which it is located. The picture here is not the cottage obviously, but a pagoda in the park. It is a really nice park, but thats all it is really. Even if you are really in to nature - which I am - Chengdu has a lot of... More

Generally, it is a park near the 2nd ring road. The poet Dufu used to have his Cottage there, which explains the name. You can have a look at his poetry work (in chinese of course) or even buy copies in chinese and english. I personally really like the park as its really quiet there, so you can take a... More

Unless you have a strong affinity to this particular aspect of Chinese culture you are likely to be disappointed as it is simply a dilapidated cottage! A bit like seeing Shakespeare's home but more basic and a bit run down. The gardens are quite nice.

Du Fu Cottage is a visit one should make. The site is located in a very nice, tranquil area in the busy city. The Cottage area is larger than one might expect. The history of the Cottage is amazing and this is a site that should be part of a visit.

After a 15.5 hour train trip from Xian to Chengdu that was too long and dirty, our first stop in Chengdu was Du Fu's Thatched Cottage. What a fortunate choice we made. We spent a good portion of a recent sunny October day wandering its quiet tree-lined paths, breathing the clean air, stopping to stare at the fish pond, sitting... More
