Qufu Travel Guide
曲阜Qufu is a quiet, inviting Shandong town that packs a lot of history into a small area. The town's most famous residents were the Kong family to which KongZi or Confucius was born around 550 BC. The grandeur and majesty of Qufu's main historic sights, the Confucius Temple, Mansions, and Forest, attests to the importance Confucius and his ideologies held in ancient China.
The ancient walled core of Qufu is very small and mostly made up of the three major sights, but its quaint side streets are nice to explore on foot. The streets just next to the Confucius Temple and around the Bell Tower are usually full of antique and incense vendors.
