Leshan Grand Buddha is located in Leshan City, around 150 km south to Chengdu city. Leshan Grand Buddha is sometimes translated as Leshan Giant Buddha. It is a Metreya Buddha built in Tang Dynasty, about 1200 years ago. The statue is 71-meter’s tall and its head is solely 10-meter’s tall. It is by far the oldest and biggest Seated Buddha statue in the world.

The cruise trip to the front of the statue takes about half an hour. The cruise boat is a small two-deck boat that can accommodate 30-40 people. The port is a few kilometers away from the statue. The boat will stop in front of the statue for about 10 minutes. Spectacle from the boat is considered the best to take photos of the statue.
