Expansive grounds, some respite from the busy traffic

I'd visited the poet Dufu Thatched Cottage after viewing the Sichuan Museum, which is in the same area. Admission fee was RMB 60. The grounds are huge with the many paths and... read more

This place is important to Chinese history scholars and literary types who regard Du Fu, a Tang Dynasty poet, as a national treasure. For us, who had never read one of his poems, the buzz was perhaps considerably less. Also, most of the memorial halls and so on date back to the Qing Dynasty period at the earliest, with the...

I'd visited the poet Dufu Thatched Cottage after viewing the Sichuan Museum, which is in the same area. Admission fee was RMB 60. The grounds are huge with the many paths and landscaping, you can actually lost your bearing easily. The thatched cottage and other displays showed the humble background of the Tang poet. There are books and compilation of... More

Du Pu was famously known as patriotic poet who lived 1000 years ago. This is a special large national park dedicated to him. My parents had free entry. My son and I paid some money (less than 100 yuan). We loved the serenity and tea house inside. Much energy from tall trees around us. You will see various people practising... More

If you have one day in Chengdu, I wouldn't go out of your way to visit Du Fu's Cottage. That said, the grounds are very lovely, and there is enough information in English to get some sense of the man's importance to Chinese history and literature. On the other hand, the place is clearly more meaningful to the locals and... More

There is a lot to see and do just in hiking and looking around the park and the scenery. The history interesting but you can just enjoy the walkways, the scenery, and all of the buildings. It can get crowded but it's a great place to get away from the city for the history, the hiking, the scenery, and general... More

This is a good reconstruction of the original. For us not knowing about the history it did not really resonate

There's a surprising number of things to see in Huanhuaxi Park, but all of it is very inconsequential. If you don't make it here during your visit to Chengdu, you won't be missing much at all. The WuFu Cottages are a small number of buildings that are quite bare and since I'm not sure when poured concrete was actually invented,... More

Cold January 2 week holiday to Chengdu and this place was amazing. Such beautiful gardens and building. So much to learn here i spent many hours walking, reading about all the different parts of the Cottage and gardens as well as taking many photos. Incredibly relaxing and for what they have and offer its was very cheap to enter.

A renowned poet lived on the site in ancient times. Now it's been made into a park with reconstructed buildings from that era, and exhibits celebrating poetry and other aspects of Chinese culture like porcelain. There's also a small archaeological site. Nice on a lazy spring day, but don't feel bad if you skip it. Try to avoid the crowds... More
