Day 2 Leshan - Leshan Giant Buddha - Chengdu ( B, L )

Highlights of today: Leshan Giant Buddha, Huanglongxi Ancient Town

After breakfast, set out early from your hotel to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Leshan Giant Buddha when it is less-crowded. Carved during AD713~803 on a mountain rock cliff by the river, with its head reaching to the mountain top and its feet standing next to the river, Leshan Giant Buddha is the largest and tallest stone-carved statue of Buddha in the world. The total height is 71 meters; while the head is 14.7meters high and 10 meters wide, ear is 7meters high, 28 meters between knees and insteps. Its insteps can hold over a hundred people. On the right cliff of the Giant Buddha, there is a plank road built along with the Giant Buddha. You may be wondering why such a giant Buddha was built? It is said to have been built to calm the turbulent waters that plagued passing boats and killed many people each year in ancient time. From the top to foot, the plank road has nine turns, thus it’s called Nine Bends Plank Road. The widest part of the road is 1.45m and the narrowest part is only 0.6m, and there are 217 stone steps in total. You will walk down the plank road to the feet of the Giant Buddha for a closer view.

After Giant Buddha visit, drive back to Chengdu and visit Huanglongxi Ancient Town on route. In spite of a history of 1700 years, Huanglongxi Ancient Town till remains its antique flavor given off by ancient buildings and old folklore custom. The featured layout and architectures make it a national film and television photography base and 150 more movies have been shot here. You can turn to any direction to find something interesting to explore, like courtyards, ancient banyan trees, or foot bridges. Strolling alongside the running stream or dabbling in the water which run through the town will be an enjoyable experience and you will feel a cool and refreshing summer.

Lastly, drive back to your hotel in Chengdu. Our service ends.

Hi Mr Wang,

Thanks! I had a weekend away to Xi’an, China to celebrate my birthday. It was an exciting weekend and it was certainly something off the beaten trail for most of my friends. The itinerary you have suggested provided good coverage of the city’s rich history. From the fascinating Terracotta Army to the City Walls to the sacred Mount Hua, to the Muslim Quarter to the Drum & Bell Towers, there’s an interesting story from every historical era in Xi’an. I managed to hike up Mount Hua from North Peak to West Peak, but I didn’t get to do the dangerous plank walk as it was closed.

The hotel Eastern House was very accessible too with food places within steps and its proximity to the Drum Tower is a plus. The room was very clean and comfortable.

At this point, I have to quickly mention our amazing tour guide Betty Jiao Yan who was assigned to us as part of our private tour package. She made our time feel so very special and I wonder if Xi'an would have been as awesome without her. She had such a positive and caring nature and when we had to say goodbye, we felt very sad. It was strange to miss a guide after only knowing her for 5 days! Luckily we still keep in touch on WeChat. Our driver Mr Ma was very polite, punctual and accommodating, making our travel a pleasant experience

Hi Rita,

In response to your enquiries, we had a wonderful experience with the tour arrangements in both Guilin and Yangshuo. Both the tour guide and driver were very professional and handled the arrangements well.

I am surely recommending any friends or relatives who are interested in travelling to China in future to use China Discovery. Also, will be looking at other destinations for ourselves too.

Thanks once again for the wonderful experience.
