Chengdu: Big Buddha in Leshan
Chengdu Blog: Big Buddha in Leshan!
(Written by Ms. Barstow) Today was the highly anticipated visit to the Giant Buddha in Leshan! It was rainy in the morning, but by the time we arrived to the site it was quite beautiful out! Upon our arrival we enjoyed a lunch of local dishes. We then forged on to the main event which did not disappoint. It’s hard to really convey just how gigantic this figure is in pictures, but we’re going to give it a shot. After we hiked all around the Buddha, our hosts treated us to a boat ride on the Three Rivers, which provided an even better vantage point of the giant. Lots of fun was had.
We have been greatly enjoying this group. They all get along very well and have been taking everything in. We would travel with any of them anytime! Good job, parents! Enjoy the pictures.
