Tianfu Square

At the center of the city lies Tianfu Square, the location of the iconic Mao Zedong statue which overlooks Chengdu. Although for years Tianfu Square was just a construction site, it re-opened in 2009 to boast scenic features like waterfalls and gardens. Hosting the central subway station, the square is lit up at night and fountains are illuminated by neon lights.

Notes

Tianfu Square is a large tourist attraction in Chengdu, so expect to see vendors waiting for you outside of the subway exit, most commonly offering to take your photograph.

    One of my favorite spots in Chengdu especially at night! I hope to come back soon.

      It is a nice place to visit at night, with the ambient lighting and waterfalls. Incredible how this was such an unsightly place for so many years. They have really turned it around.
