China - Leshan Giant Buddha, Sichuan

The Leshan Giant Buddha is the largest stone Buddha in the world and it is by far the tallest pre-modern statue in the world. It was built during the Tang Dynasty (618–907AD) and carved out of a cliff face that lies at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in the southern part of Sichuan province in China.

I felt so fulfilled deep inside me when I was praying here with Rambo. I asked for his good blessings in life for my family and asking him to guide us to the right path of life. Felt so humble, very happy to be able to pray here and it's also one of my most memorable moment spent on spiritual development with Buddha here. In fact, he kept me calm and blessed all the time.     

The stone sculpture faces Mount Emei(Emei Shan) with the rivers flowing below his feet. The Mount Emei Scenic Area, including Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. It was not damaged by the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.

No matter how safe they claimed the ferry to be and I can swim my way out, still I take every precaution to wear the safety life jacket before I came up here for photo shooting.The wind blows calmly through my face, very cooling during Spring season. This is the best time to come for holiday in Sichuan, China at 10-20 d.c, very cooling weather but can be very cold at night so bring a Jacket along with you.  

To travel to this stunning place listening to the history of Sichuan China, you can check out AirAsia website at and don't miss out planning your getaway to shop around Chengdu shopping malls. I enjoy my shopping spree here especially during sale time, shop till I drop. 

Haha...the fashion is very up-todate, loud colours from bright pink to fresh apple green and price, 'Ooh La La' you can still bargain to the rock-bottom price even when you're shopping at the shopping malls. Enjoy your trip, I'll keep you update on other China holiday of mine!
