Leshan Giant Buddha will reopen to tourists on April 1 after the half-year facelift.
Leshan Giant Buddha will reopen to tourists on April 1 after a repair of six months. Standing 71 meters high, the statue was carved out of a hillside in the 8th century and looks down on the confluence of three rivers.
And it's time to take a trip to Leshan City, just about 160km from downtown Chengdu, which boasts the Giant Buddha and quite a number of places of interest. Here we recommend three must-visit sites in the neighboring areas of Leshan City:
The largest stone-carved Buddha statue in the world, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
Mount Emei, together with the Giant Buddha, was inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1996 and is known for its picturesque scenery.
When rapeseed flowers and paulownia blossoms are in full bloom, thousands of visitors come Qianwei County of Leshan City, about a two-hour-drive from Chengdu, to have a tour on the steam train and appreciate the scenery.
