My family and I visited the Du Fu Cottage during a full-day tour and enjoyed wondering around the property and exploring. This is a nice and natural place to take small children to when in Chengdu.

It's worth a visit to Du Fu Cottage and even on a rainy day, just loved hearing his history from our guide. Gardens are worth the visit.

A nice tranquil garden and museum honoring Du Fu, one of China's great poets. Sip tea, enjoy the ponds and vegetation, shop for collections of poems, traditional music or art. Du Fu escaped the ravages of war to find beauty and peace here, which allowed...More
