Den of a Warlord
Nov 2016 • Couples
This very large complex provides a glimpse into an an era that was almost over by the time it was built.

The owner was an opium warlord and he built the house in the 1930's. This is interesting for two reasons: firstly, if you didn't know this, you'd think it was much older, and secondly the world as the owner new it would be completely swept away in a few short years.

The house itself has so nice courtyards and period furniture and is nice to wonder around.

Interesting Relatively Recent Social History
Oct 2016 • Friends
A well preserved manor house that belonged to a Sichuan of power during the dying days of the Qing Dynasty. The original Mr Liu made a fortune from driving the serfs cruelly hard and selling opium. The family home passed on to more philanthropic generations (the latest occupant being an important military figure in the anti-japanese war) and is well a preserved example of a wealthy person's home from this era. The contents of the house reflect the tastes and styles of the Republican period which make it interesting.

Old Mansion
Jun 2015 • Friends
An old mansion from a rich family, now a museum. Exhibition of the collection of China, Ivory carvings and other things the family collected. Interesting to see, but not a place you will find by yourself. About 1-1½ hours drive from Chengdu city.
Lots of small tea houses and stores selling everything from homemade candy, to toys and shoes.
Worth a visit. Expect that no one here will understand a word of English, most looked like they had never seen a foreigner before, but friendly and helpful.
Most was build around 1930-40 and is not as modern as you would expect. I thought it would be much older.

A little bit of history...
Dec 2013 • Family
Our plan was to spend the day in Xiling Snow Mountain. Unfortunately, upon reaching our destination we could see that there was no snow at the snow mountain. Thus, we decided instead of wasting the day, we headed to Liu's Manor Museum. The is a fee charged for this attraction. The manor and courtyard is well maintained and it houses antique pieces from the days of chinese landlord Liu Wencai. Pictures and texts documents the life of Liu Wencai. Worth the visit only if you are passing the area. Adjacent to the manor museum is the streets of ancient town Anren. Little touristy shops selling odds and ends, food and in the tea shops groups of people playing mahjong.
