Leshan Things to Do: 40 reviews and 101 photos
I wasn't in the mood to fight my way through thousands of people climbing to see the Grand Buddha so I took a water tour instead and really enjoyed it.
There were more Buddha's to see from the water and views of the Grand Buddha were great.
Cost 50RMB and worth it. The river trip was also interesting because of the rough waters and tidal flows - it was no smooth sailing trip - and it is compulsory to wear lafe jackets. Thank goodness!
I did do the climb next trip and it was well worth it tough the steps were a bit of hassle for me. The gardens and grounds were lovely; easy to fill in a day.
The street stalls are the usual tourist rip off's - buy your souvenirs in town..... And get your water and snacks from the supermarket before you go to Leshan....
Directions: From waterside near entrance to the Great Buddha Park
