Cheng du is good for tourist to visit. Every attraction offers transport to go other places. The view was great and will visit it again if I have chance.

Du Fu was a poet in an earlier age when warlords determined people's fate. He was an outspoken critic on behalf of the common people. The site of this museum has changed much from the crowded little streets of his time, to the pleasant gardens...More

Apparently DuFu spent 5 years here in this restored and remodeled hut where he reportedly wrote over 1000 poems. Around the hut is a large, peaceful park with walkways, creeks, and manicured lawns
