  • Du Fu Thatched cottage originally thought is a soon can walk the scenic spot, did not expect to finish here and there. It took about 2-3 hours to walk, and then it was completely gone ... But a place to take a quiet, and bring you back to the old time ...

  • Although I am not very familiar with Du Fu's poetry collection, the cottage is actually filled with the interest of many literati, perhaps these are built after the renovation, but the park is still very well preserved, it can be more convex and 愜 than the suggestion that the weekdays are a little bit less.

  • Cottage is very large, Du Fu and is not a high-ranking official, it is difficult to imagine that there is such a pattern of the official residence, it is because the poetry of the holy people admire, generation has been built, called the thatched cottage in some improper. The park is very good, the exhibition of many famous poetry words, Aleppo gurgaon times.

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
