Really love this place. So peaceful and beautiful. Recommended for people who want to learn more about the poets of the Tang dynasty. Take around 2 hours to visit this place and stroll its gardens and grounds.

House of famous Poet Du Fu during his time in Chengdu. we paid RMB10 for the tour guidance which is very much worth it, everyone is given a piece of earphone so that we will not miss any explaination by the tour guide.

It's my favourite sight n Chengdu. Allow 2 to 3 hours to see the place and plse engage a guide to appreciate it better. Beautiful and well conceived , and not as superficial as the other sites.

This is so much more than just Du Fu’s cottage, which will take you maybe 5 mins to walk through. We thought it was a small place we can just walk through and be one. To our surprise, the park is huge and has different...More

I only got to know about Du Fu from my Chinese students who were amused that I had never come across this great Chinese poet. I was only familiar with Li Bai, a contemporary and good friend of Du Fu. So even when some reviews...More
