Du Fu was a famous Chinese poet from the Tang dynasty who built a cottage in this area many, many moons ago. The grounds are absolutely beautiful... flowers, greenery, trees. There is a pagoda on the grounds you can go up in... a pretty good view of the city (if it were clear). One corner of the grounds has an... More

This is a great visit if you are in Chengdu. It provides a history tour in this well laid out park and you can easily spend a few hours enjoying the tranquility if you visit in the quiet periods in winter.

this is the site of tang era poet Du Fu's thatched cottage now surrounded with beautiful gardens and many pavilions dedicated to the Chinese literal great. a small archeological museum witnessing the village life of DuFu's contemporary (8th century). Awesome. great place to ponder, stroll, and relax.

Du Fu's Cottage is a little overpriced, but it's still one of the most peaceful places in Chengdu. Between the actual foundations of his house, the model house you can walk through, and the pretty park, it's definitely worth seeing if you're not super pushed for time in Chengdu.

It was a lot bigger than I'd be anticipating, so unfortunately I didn't leave enough time. However, it felt mostly just like a giant park. There was the replica old thatched cottage and a dig site, but overall I felt like it was a bit expensive for what it was. Maybe that's also because it's winter now, though. I think... More

It's cool to see where Dufu lived and wrote. Howeer it's just a cottage with trees and streams. I hear Huanhuaxi Park is beautiful though. It's right behind it apparently.

Worth a visit. Lovely surroundings and architecture of the buildings. A long walk from the closest metro but an interesting walk.

Worth a quick stop; I believe it is near Jinli Pedestrian street as well. You can see it from the outside just fine; no need to pay the entrance fee to be honest.

The cottage and water / streams around it are very peaceful and beautiful. Can see why the poet Du Fu took refuge here. Cottage very simple, almost hermit-like living, but very relaxing.
