buddhaWe visited the giant Buddha in Leshan, just a two hour busride away from the Xinnanmen busterminal in Chengdu.

The giant Buddha is the largest stone Buddha in the world. Construction started 1300 years ago, in an attempt to calm the junction of two rivers at which the Buddha is positioned.

Most tourists decide to ascent the stairs but we took the boat and enjoyed the view for a bit.
