Dufu Thatched Cottage

Destinations & activities: Du Fu Thatched Cottage, Wangjiang Park, Jinli Old Street, Sanxingdui Ruins & Museum, Chengdu Shu Embroidery Co.

- Du Fu Thatched Cottage (1.5 hours): Poetry has long been a treasured art in China, and this museum and memorial commemorates the great poet Du Fu (712-770). He is frequently considered one of the best that China’s ever had, and Chengdu proudly presents his cottage due to the 5 years the master spent here at the height of his creativity. The thatched hut is surrounded by a spacious and colorful garden, sure to inspire the poet within you.
- Wangjiang Park (1.5 hours): Chengdu has been home to a number of renowned Chinese poets! Wangjiang Park was once the home of poet Xue Tao (768-831), who originally hailed from Chang’an but moved here with her father. The park’s beautiful scenery includes the south bank of the Jinjiang River and many stretches of graceful bamboo.
- JinLi Street: JinLi commercial street has been a mainstay in Chengdu ever since the establishment of the first Chinese dynasty, the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). It flourished in the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) and Three Kingdoms Periods (220–280) and is today still a popular place for locals to meet and shop at the countless teahouses, restaurants, bars, theaters, artisanal shops, and snack stands. JinLi Street has been fully restored in traditional Sichuan style with respect to its rich heritage.
- Sanxingdui Ruins & Museum: The ruined city of Sanxingdui which has a history dating back to over 3,000 years is a most curious site to discover. The on-site museum exhibits a fantastic collection of bronze, jade, and gold wares, as well as potteries and bones that help give clues to what life was like many centuries ago.
- Chengdu Shu Embroidery Co.: Aside from poetry, Chengdu is famous for its fine quality silk brocades and intricate embroidery. The hand-operated looms create exquisite patterns that cannot be replicated by a mass production machine. Both ancient and contemporary patterns can be found at this factory and shop, utilizing techniques refined from the old days. Don’t miss out on purchasing some one-of-a-kind souvenirs for your loved ones at home.
- Long Chao Shou Snack: This chain of restaurants in Chengdu offers classic snack-style Sichuan and Chengdu meals. Order at the bar whatever your tongue wishes to try, and a waitress will bring your dishes out to you. By ordering smaller quantities, you will have the opportunity to try a higher number of regional cuisines!

Meals: Breakfast; lunch at Long Chao Shou Snack
