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...

The ghost city was one of the Yangtze River cruise excursions and well worth the effort of climbing the numerous flights of steps. The local guide gave a great commentary of the temples and other interesting items as we progressed through the site. The bridge over which you crossed with your partner taking a certain number of steps to invoke... More

Feels like a cheap money grab theme park that was built just as a tourist trap. Hardly a single real relic there, most things are either replicas or straight up plastic or styrofoam models. Some moderate theatrics but not much content and the whole place contradicts itself with no real history. The tour guide even hit us with a story... More
