“AMAZING”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

I my opinion, and I have traveled throughout China, seeing many many historical sites - DAZU, is one of the most impressive.

“One of the lesser known amazing sights of China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We visited Dazu at the end of a two week trip and thought we had seen enough of China but this was amazing! To think they were constructed so long ago and with such detail was worth the trip from Chongqing especially as Chongqing itself does not have much to offer!

This was also one of the less crowded places of interest and the drive there once leaving the motorway was very scenic and all in all made for a very unexpected excellent day!!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Absolutely amazing site of so many, 50,000, rock carvings, some absolutely huge, some over 1200 years old. One of the most memorable sites on our visit to China, specfically requested to be included in ou trip. We were lucky to have a guide who had studied them for 6 months as part of his training as a tour guide. It took about 2 hours to complete the visit. It was a 2 1/2 hour drive from Chonqing but it was worth every minute of it. You get to see an awful lot of rural China en route.

“A real must do and worth the effort.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

We went to Dazu over the CNY Spring festival to visit the carvings. In fact it is 2 sites one in Beishan and the other in Baoding. You can buy a combined ticket for both sites for rmb120 or rmb90 for Baoding and rmb70 for Beishan. No discount for kids.
We went to Baoding and as expected it was busy and a little congested with visitors and tour groups. However do not miss this one.
This is a real must do and one of the best attraction we had visited. The carvings are absolutely spectaculiar and should not be missed if you intend visiting Chongqing.
