This is 3 rivers coming together. Long, walks, not much to see, take tourist bus (we didn’t) to help. Went as built in BC but you see result of the building not that any of it is left. No translation & our guide knew very little. Highly touristy- r good shots from climbing up temple & suspension bridges could be fun for some. But too much time for so little

What a great place, so much history and the views are incredible. Make sure you go to the pagoda, it really is worth the walk, the views are breathtaking

Getting there: Went there via Xipu at the end of metro line 2. After exiting the metro station, turn left and the railway station is about 100 m away; follow signs. We took the 8.40 am train to Lidui Park, although it does not appear to be very frequent; the journey took about 30 min. From Lidui Park, once you exit (up escalator, exit D), you are in a park. Ignore the hacklers and head for the river directly ahead and follow the river upstream. The South entrance to Dujiangyan is about 15-20 min walk.
Although there are buses and taxis to Dujiangyan, the walk is worth it (assuming good weather) as you pass by/through a number of "bridges" which are teahouses. The river banks are also lined with beautiful old shop houses.
Admission charge into the Dujiangyan irrigation system is 95 RMB in total. There are nice exhibits, etc. Unfortunately, I cannot say much about the entire area as we left the place before realising that we had covered only a small portion of it! But the little we saw were really nice.

Pleasant scenery but lots of people on a Saturday afternoon. Not really any info in English around the place but we did our reading online before we came and it was a nice walk.
Took around 2 hours to do the full circuit at a stroll.
Entry cost 90 RMB each. We were approached by a guide with very good English but declined.
The old town around there is nice too, especially as the sun goes down.

A marvelous ancient irrigation system constructed around 250 years B.C.! The materials used were just wood, bamboo and stones. Worth to spend half a day to have a look.
