It was several years ago when I took the train from Chengdu to visit Dujiangyan. The system located located on the Minjiang and it was originally constructed around 256 BC by the State of Qin as a water conservation and flood control project. You can't imagine that this irrigation system has been functioning for more than 2000 years and It... More

I had a great chance to visit this unforgettable place. Before I came there, all I knew is "It is a great irrigation work designed by LiBing who was used to be an official worker in the Chinese government." However, when I got there I finally felt the power of human's intelligence. The smart design of the artificial riverbed helps... More

This is a place of great interest and wonder. The beauty of nature. We took a coach up the hill then walked down and crossed over the bridge. Quite taxing on the legs but the scenery is breathtaking to say the least.

2016年11月与我哥结伴自驾去的,当时请了一个专业导游,全程浏览下来的确佩服我们祖先的智慧。 都江堰位于四川省成都市都江堰市城西,坐落在成都平原西部的岷江上,始建于秦昭王末年(约公元前256~前251),是蜀郡太守李冰父子在前人鳖灵开凿的基础上组织修建的大型水利工程,由分水鱼嘴、飞沙堰、宝瓶口等部分组成,两千多年来一直发挥着防洪灌溉的作用,使成都平原成为水旱从人、沃野千里的"天府之国",至今灌区已达30余县市、面积近千万亩,是全世界迄今为止,年代最久、唯一留存、仍在一直使用、以无坝引水为特征的宏大水利工程,凝聚着中国古代汉族劳动人民勤劳、勇敢、智慧的结晶。 A great culture tirp with my elder-brother. The system was originally constructed around 256 BC by the State of Qin as a water conservation and flood control project. The system's infrastructure is located on the Minjiang, which is the longest tributary of the Chang Jiang, in Sichuan, China. The area is situated in the western portion of the... More

Really interesting and breathtaking place. Strenght of river, divided into three sections, wondering about the intelligence of people 2300 years ago, what they were able to realise without any machines. Very good explanation of our tour guide, shuttle bus service, beautiful nature and tempels in surrounding.

My husband was really keen on visiting this place but I didn't enjoy it so much. Mostly because the explanations on the English audio guide weren't that great, so I didn't fully understand how the irrigation system worked. If you have time, sure why not, the village surrounding the park is really cute and there are great places to eat.... More

For muslims, before you get confused by my title, let me explain on the mosque and halal food. Both are not located inside the park but at the food and souvenir street just over the south bridge, about 2 minutes walk from the entrance. So if you want to have lunch first, eat before you enter the park. We arrived... More

As others have said this is a really interesting place to go and visit, the walks are beautiful and the gardens are just amazing. We walked round the way so the Gardens where the last thing we came to. If you are in Dujianguyan for more than one day buy a season ticket to the park! It only costs 10元... More

This is one of our favorite attractions in Chengdu. Not only is the irrigation system extremely impressive, there are many cafes there where you can sit down and enjoy the view. Nearby there is a walking street and food street. It is not one of those places where you just hop down from the van, take a few pictures and... More

An engineering wonder of the world. Go at night - its much more beautiful to see. But any time of the day is nice - during the day, it provides a calling breeze due to the rapid movement of the water.
