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

Unless you're eager to go into the deep history surrounding the cottage I would not recommend it highly, however the park next to it is very nice and so to see the cottage turned into a very nice half day trip as we went into the park.Would not go specially for the cottage though.

This was lovely and just a wonderful place to wander the extensive gardens. A couple feet into the gardens and the world outside just melts away. There are rockeries with hidden sound system so the gentle sound of Chinese music wafts through the huge bamboo groves and over the pools and streams and lotus blossoms. This is a true respite...

Du Fung Cottage is located in a lush park, telling the story of one of China's great tragic poets...the guy was mostly depressed! While there are some English descriptions//signs, a non-Cinese speaking visitor will benefit from being accompanied by someone who can read/translate the numerous and interesting Chinese explanations and Du's poems

Visited this attraction when we stayed over a few days in Chengdu. This quiet picturesque site tries to preserve the peaceful tranquility of the home of the famous Tang poet. The huge gardens had lots of bonsai plants and very old local flora. There is also a small exhibit which had the various types of sculptures of the great poets... More

This is a great place to visit for a leisurely half day if you are into slow strolls and tea drinking. I thought the cost was rather steep for what there was to see and do.

There are twisting paths surrounded by a large variety of trees and bamboo. Little temples offer information on famous poets. Most have English, but a few only have Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The atmosphere is very calm and has traditional Chinese instruments playing in the background. Overall, it's great for people who enjoys a traditional Chinese atmosphere and nature!

Inmidst of the City there is this beautiful quiet garden honoring one of the greatest poets of worlds history at a place where he originally used to life. It is surely a place of inspiration and beauty with a neat spirit, a pearl of quiet reflection inmost a hectic world . . . truly a jewel for the soul
