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.

Perhaps not as well known to westerners, Du Fu is an important literary figure. Even if you are not interested in Du Fu, the home is a beautiful example of the architecture of the time. The gardens are really well laid out and it feels very rural. I thought this was well worth the time.

I wasn't planning to visit here, but ended up at the entrance after I visited the Sichuan museum and impulsively decided to go in. I am very glad I did; it is an interesting combination of gardens, history, poetry, and art. It inspired me to want to read more Chinese poetry (albeit in translation). Most exhibits had English signs; some... More

Spent an afternoon here with a wendy wu trip. Very relaxed atmosphere. Historically very interesting.( if you like that sort of thing) but why go to China if you don't.

This site is nicely set out and a pleasant quiet corner in a big bustling city, and worth a visit, to see Chinese culture from years ago.

It was under renovation when I went so some parts are still not completed. The archaeological site was ok, with some artefacts being shown and there was a video which shows how life was in the past. The old cottage of Du Fu displayed the general layout and old furniture.
