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

We enjoyed our time here, it's not much but worth visiting if you are in Chengdu. The layout and arrangement of this park is nice. Inside it, there are lake, historic sites, museum and plenty of trees. The place is cool and peaceful even in summer hot day.

My parents, my husband and me visited Du Fu Cottage in August this year. We enjoyed our time here. The layout and arrangement of this park is nice. Inside it, there are lake, historic sites, museum and plenty of trees. The place is cool and peaceful even in summer hot day. Highly recommended.

Don't go here looking for excitement. Du Fu was a poet who led an interesting life. A lover and a talented individual. This site is peaceful and serene. An excellent place to meditate upon your journey through China so far. Chengdu is my favorite city and Du Fu's Cottage was the first site I ever visited while just walking through... More

Coming from Beijing, this park smells nice! Fresh air, old trees, small rivers, the house of Du Fu, what a pleasant stay. The bookstore sells poetry books of Du Fu. What else do you need: just sit at one of the tea houses, under the trees and read Du Fu poetry.
