Dedicated to the famous Chinese poet who lived during the Tang Dynasty, Du Fu Cottage offers visitors the opportunity to explore a 1,000-year-old home where more than 240 literary works of art were created. Poet Du Fu lived in this thatched cottage during 760 CE while fleeing from a rebellion, and during his four-year stay he composed poems that China counts as national treasures. Today the site represents a shrine to literature designed in the form of a traditional garden where chrysanthemums and orchids grow. Explore the elegant and peaceful compound and learn about the life of one of China's most prolific and memorable artists.

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.
