We were not really sure what to expect, but took of from Chengdu with train (pre-buy as they sell out - do 1st class if you can). Super easy bullet train ride for about 1 hour. Arrived at the train station and take the bus...More
This is a wonderful image with views from a boat if desired and walking the actual statue. This is a working monastery where councilling and classes are being given. I went on a weeekday and was able to see everything in about 2 hours sans...More
Must remind people with weak knee not to go down to the foot of Buddha, or you may have hard time climbing back.
This is a historical site and the art on the cliff and temples is nice.
Avoid going on the weekend and public...More

Boat trip was uneventful and...More
Take the boat tour. Walking this attraction is MISERABLE. You stand in line for an hour or more before you get to take the stairs down to the bottom to view the Buddha. You are pushed the whole way down and can barely look at...More
Unless you want to walk up countless number of stairs, take the boat instead. Easy to get to LeShan from ChengDu, 45 minutes fast train. When you arrive in LaShan take buss K1. Get off at the Giant Buddha stop. Walk down the road to...More

Once you get to the entrance, you don't need to buy the standard tickets, rather, facing the ticket office, go on the right towards the river and there you find some boat-tour agencies. Otherwise, just show them this message... More
Once you get to the entrance, you don't need to buy the standard tickets, rather, facing the ticket office, go on the right towards the river and there you find some boat-tour agencies. Otherwise, just show them this message when asking for info: 我们要乘游艇游览乐山大佛，我们怎么办？非常感谢你 (We'd like to take a boat tour to enjoy the Giant Buddha, how can we do that? Many thanks)
