“If you have never seen a statue of Mao”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

this is a pretty good one but it is hardly worth the bother. The square is nice and really the statue is just a detail not the attraction.

Recommend you see this out a taxi window as that is all it warrants unless you plan to stroll around the square at night.

“It's a Statue...that's all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The statue sits on the north end of the central square in Chengdu but by no means is impressive. If you are already there then fine but don't go out of your way to find it.

“Interesting people watching”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Not sure why the statue is such a highlight, whilst it's nice to see it really is about Tianfu Square.

The Square is quite large and kind of interesting but not much really to see or do here other than a few happy snaps and then people watching.

It's nice when the fountain is lit up at night but that's about it.

“Tianfu Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

A landmark which you should walk through when you are around Chengdu. There isn't alot to it but the Mao statue stands out as does the concrete fountain.

“Mao in Tianfu Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

The very tall statue of Mao overlooks Tianfu Square. Across the square in his line of sight is a McDonald's and a Starbucks, something the real Mao would find quite ironic. A joke in Chendu says something to the effect that Mao turned to stone during the long wait while trying to hail a taxi cab.
