Truly amazing experience. The statue is enormous and the views from the river boat are excellent. It took about one hour to queue in the rain but don't worry if you have not brought rain gear there are umbrellas, raincoats and rain booties for sale.

If you go to Chengdu make sure you make a detour to Leshan and the Giant Buddha carved into the rock formation. You will have to take a bus or a taxi from Chengdu and it will take you about 2 hours to get there...More
