An enjoyable few hours to wander

Our coach tour stopped here for a couple of hours. Nice stop and an enjoyable wander around. Lots of small shops, some touristy and some not so.

Be advised there are 500 steps. We were the only Occidentals on the tour from a cruise ship that was about 50% each. Our fellow westerners missed a worthwhile exploration. The depiction of hell was certainly vivid. It was the only part of the complex not destroyed in the 1960's Cultural Revolution by Red Guards. The rebuilding has been flawless.

We thought heaven didn't look too inviting with all its goulish images and it made us somewhat worried to see the Temple of Hell. It was here we learned the three trials for ghosts who wanted to enter the nether world. Our guide saw to it we passed them all.

A side excursion as part of the Yangtze River Cruise. Get off the ship and enjoy the exercise as it is well worth it.

Interesting excursion from our boat tour, be ready to climb lots of steps up - most of the sights in China do involve climbing more steps than we in the west are used to!

Lots of ancient Chinese history here which is incredibly interesting! Very special place for Chinese people with the effect very similar for Western people who visit.

We have to pay extra Remimbi 290 and frankly, not worth it. Mainly reconstructed and better to stay onboard and enjoy the cruise facility. Quite a fair bit of climbing

First stop on our 3 day Yangtze River cruise aboard the Yangtzi Explorer Cruise ship. Fengdu is known as the Ghost City, as it is submerged, since the building of the Three Grorges Dam. All of it's inhabitants were moved, by the Chinese government, to a place referred to as a "relocation village ". It is too bad since the... More

I visited as part of an English speaking group with a guide. There is a lot of climbing to be done, but plenty of time allowed. I hadn't realised so many of the buildings were replicas, but they've been done very well. Written information in English is limited and it's incredibly busy as all the groups arrive at the same...
