Visited DuFu cottage on May 2, 2021. Not as many people as in other tourist sites. Nice park, traditional Chinese park. I wouldn't say the best one I visited in China, still it has the beauty.

Du Fu (712-770 AD) was one of the greatest poet in China (Tang Fynasty). Around 760 AD, Du Fu stayed here for 4 years, and wrote over two hundred poems.

The original thatched hut built by Du Fu has been destroyed. It was renovated in 1500, 1811 and 20 century, and was expanded to its current scale in a large park. The park includes a beautiful garden, a pond, and several pavilions and buildings. The scenery is gorgeous.

It is now a shrine and museum of Chinese literature. A must visit place for Chinese people and Chinese culture lovers.

The 22-acre thatched cottage museum park and memorial temple is in honour of an 8th-century Tang dynasty poet by the name of Du Fu. The thatched roof cottage (albeit, reconstructed) was his former residence, where he had written over 300 Chinese poems. The property has nice walkways lined with trees and flowers, a pagoda, ponds, a waterfalls, and much more. There are many great places to take photos, while enjoying a walk through this amazingly beautiful museum park.

The thatched cottage, well-maintained and beautiful gardens, and exhibitions of sculptures and other works of art are all a treasure of Chengdu, and well worth visiting. I come for a relaxing walk through the grounds on most of my Chengdu visits.

Beautiful ancient buildings and gardens, nice statues, interesting dwarf trees (i think they have a specific Chinese name), tall bamboo plants on both sides of a walkway, ancient beds, desks and chairs, other furniture, food preparation area, etc..

The actually cottage is a very minor part of the grounds in which it is located. The picture here is not the cottage obviously, but a pagoda in the park. It is a really nice park, but thats all it is really. Even if you are really in to nature - which I am - Chengdu has a lot of beautiful parks that you can see for free. Tickets to this place are 100 RMB+, I can't remember the exact amount. Unless you are spending an extended amount of time in the city I would't really recommend it.

I had never heard of Du Fu before it was recommended that we visit this memorial place dedicated to him. I'm glad that someone mentioned it to me as it quickly became one of my favorite places that I have seen in China.

The grounds are absolutely stunning, even in February. It is amazing that this is all contained in a space not far off the hustle and bustle of Chengdu roads. Being the offseason, the admission price was 1/2 off and only 30 yuan (roughly $4.50 US currently). It would have been worthy full price of 60 yuan.

I did not see all of the grounds. There is simply so much to see and I had a limited amount of time to spend there. If you have some time, take it and enjoy the grounds of Du Fu's Thatched Cottage.

Not the place for me.

To me it was just a bunch of trees huts and Chinese structures.

To my wife it was a place where she learned about all this Chinese poetry from her school books when she was young. Definitely an interesting place for her not for me.

I definitely felt like the banana hill billy who didn't know anything.

It's definitely a nice place to spend some time to walk around and enjoy the beautiful scenery...but if you have little time you don't need to go here.

Summary-

Nice place to sit and relax
If you don't understand the history...maybe read a book about Du Pu if you are interested.
Nice scenery of nature combined with ancient architecture.
Cost 60 rmb per person kind of pricey for what you only get to see.
Inside is still under construction so there might be more to see in the future.
Squatters so be prepared to bring your own tissue paper.
