Jianchuan Museum

Reviewed By jongjong - Singapore, Singapore

The Exhibitions in the public squares are free of charge, others will cost a nominal fee. Good for those interested in modern history in China. Didn't bother with the chargeable Exhibitions since we arrived there rather late and was nearing their closing time.

Anren Ancient Town

Reviewed By wanderwolf - Rochester, Minnesota

In Anren ancient town, you will find a cluster of museums and a tourist-y old street with snack shops and tea houses. The Jianchuan Museum (100 Yuan entrance fee), which holds memorabilia and artifacts of the Communist beginnings, Second World War, and Cultural Revolution period. Jianchuan museum was founded by a real estate mogul called Fan Jianchuan. It's a huge complex which will take the whole day to properly explore, and is comprable to the revolutionary museum in Yanan.
Across the way you will find the old manion complex of Liu Wencai, who was a landlord and official and opium dealer. The highlight of the Wencai mansion complex (50 Yuan entrance fee) are the life-size clay statue artwork by the students of Sichuan Art Academy in the 1960s of the grain tax being collected from the peasants. Down the road, you will find the mansion complex of Liu Wenhui (20 Yuan entrance fee), who was the first provincial governor of Xikang in today's western Sichuan. Wencai and Wenhui are brothers. Wencai mansion complex dates from the Daoguang period of the Qing dynasty, but unfortunately not much information is given about the architectural history. The Wenhui mansion exhibits Liu Wenhui's life and activities as warlord, governor, orator in some detail and is quite interesting as a structure. There's some interesting photos and the historical text is quite good, but only accessible to you if you read Chinese as there is only a bit of English language.
The only hotel foreigners are allowed to stay in Anren is a red-themed hotel called Jingui. Rooms are 288 and up (ask for a 20% discount) and quite clean. There are some nice hostels down the road with rooms for 80, 100, 120 Yuan, but there is a frustrating rule that foreigners cannot stay there.
The best way to get to Anren from Chengdu is a direct bus from Wuhou Temple. It is a free bus that takes you directly to the mansion complex and will take you back to Chengdu as well.
The second best way to get to Anren is from Jinsha bus station in the north of the city, which will take you to Dayi bus station -- this will take an hour. From there you will take the bus number 11 (three yuan) to Anren. The trip should be 20 minutes from Anren to Dayi.
A third way is from Shiyang bus stop in the south of the city. You can get on one of the small buses that makes a number of stops. You will have to get off the bus and walk across a crumbling bridge to get one the second leg of the trip to Anren. While the first two routes will take one hour, going from Shiyang bus stop will take you two hours or more.

Liu's Manor

Reviewed By MattwalesNorthWales - Chengdu, China

A well preserved manor house that belonged to a Sichuan of power during the dying days of the Qing Dynasty. The original Mr Liu made a fortune from driving the serfs cruelly hard and selling opium. The family home passed on to more philanthropic generations (the latest occupant being an important military figure in the anti-japanese war) and is well a preserved example of a wealthy person's home from this era. The contents of the house reflect the tastes and styles of the Republican period which make it interesting.

上周末到花水湾跑温泉,一直以为只有冬天才是泡温泉的好时候,没有想到夏天泡也很舒服,那里早晚很凉快,温泉是天然的,有很大的硫磺味,但泡着真舒服,只是不能泡太久,要不然头会晕,我们住了一晚,泡了三次,泡完后睡觉之舒服,夜晚也很安静,空气不错,值得推荐。

Heming Mountain

Reviewed By MattwalesNorthWales - Chengdu, China

There is a lot to see and do amid some beautiful countryside here. Most people these days consider Qincheng Mountain to be the birthplace of Daoism (Taoism) but actually it first began here. The problem was that during Mr Maos period of cultural vandalism the temples on Hemingshan were destroyed. However the local government have spent a considerable amount of time and money restoring/reconstructing them. So you could visit these. Alternatively you could just explore the natural rural beauty of the area. Or you could do as I did spend the afternoon rock climbing and abseiling followed by a delicious meal in a local restaurant. The choice is yours. Only 2 hours from Chengdu by bus and well worth the trip even in the rain.

Qionglai Zhuxi Lake

Reviewed By RenataM893 - Prague, Czech Republic

You have to take a taxi to get here, but it's nice place to spend few hours.
If you take the boat (2yuan) across the lake, you'll get to see really nice carvings and a temple. It's really worth spending those extra 2 yuan, because that's the best part of this place.

The worst part is the fact, that they have there 3 monkeys in cages...It rains on the monkeys, the monkeys can't sit anywhere else but on the bars...they looked quite miserable.
The entrance fee is 15yuan (no student ticket).
