Visiting Chegdu, going to Leshan for this impressive Giant Buddha is a must for whoever wants to see the marvels of China in this region. Better to start early in the morning, 8 am, to avoid the crowd and enjoy this marvellous place. One good advice: when you go down by the stairs along the Buddha, pay attention to the... More

If you are in chengdu, you cannot miss this attraction. Do not go during public holidays as many locals will be there and it can be dangerous when you walk down the long windy stairs down to the feet of the buddha if it gets too crowded. We were lucky to be there before the qingming weekend and hence the... More

Ok, you might have to wait for a while to get in, but it is definitely worth the wait, for any visitor to Leshan this is the one place one has to see. In case of visiting in the hot summer period, be sure to bring some water since it will be more pricy to buy once inside (and it... More

Seeing the Buddha from the boat is probably the best way to truly understand the size of it. People standing in front of the statue only came up to its toes. The walking to see the Buddha is a long trek going up and down narrow stairs

So cool!! I really enjoyed the view!! Try to go early so you beat the crowed, and give yourself some time to explore the rest of the park (cost extra to go in to some temples and more Buddhas, but well worth it! ¥80 extra I think) We had 3hours to walk around and it wasn't enough for us (we...

We did a very worthwhile day trip from Chengdu to see the Giant Buddha (71 metres high) we arrived by local bus to the Town near the Buddaha (you won't have trouble finding a bus) We then went down to the wharf and there is a choice of boats that will take you out to view the Buddha from the...

When you get to see the big Buddha and it is enormous there are these great signs everywhere that made us all laugh, they go something like " life is precious and special no need to be close to the edge" and other gems. I suppose that wasn't what we were meant to remember about the Buddha but that and... More
