Fodor's Review

The four-story wooden pavilion in Riverview Pavilion Park, dating from the Qing Dynasty, offers splendid views of the Fu River. The poet Xue Tao, who lived in Chengdu during the Tang Dynasty, was said to have spent time near the river, from which she apparently drew water to make paper for her poems. The pavilion stands amid more than 150 species of bamboo, a plant revered by the poet. A perfect place to stroll early mornings while the older population practice tai chi and the "Chinese yo-yo". Don't rush out before enjoying a cup of inexpensive, Y10, Mao Feng green tea (a local speciality grown in the nearby mountains). It is the perfect escape to the messy city!
