百闻不如一见
bǎi wén bù rú yī jiàn
Seeing is believing

bai3 wen2 bu4 ru2 yi1 jian4

Explanation
One eyewitness is better than ten hearsays; It is better to see once than hear a hundred times.

The Story
汉朝的时候,西边湟水一带,聚居着羌族人,称为西羌。自从汉武帝打败匈奴以后,西羌比较安定。汉宣帝时,朝廷派了官员渠安国去西羌视察。那里的一些部落请求朝廷放宽禁令,但问题没有解决,渠安国就回来了。

  过了不久,西羌的一些部落联合起来渡过湟水,并派人与匈奴联系。渠安国带了一批人马再去西羌,结果被西羌打得大败。

  再派谁去呢?宣帝派人向老将军赵充国请教。赵充国说:我去最合适了。宣帝又派人问赵充国:皇上请将军估计一下西羌的情况,他们的实力如何,该派去多少人马?赵充国说:百闻不如一见。对方军事上的情况如何,在后方很难准确地估计,还是让我上前方了解了解再来制定策略吧!赵充国到了西羌,先认真了解情况,又采取了分化瓦解的办法,团结了大多数西羌人,终于使西羌安定下来。

  赵充国说的百闻不如一见后来就成了谚语。它的意思是听到一百次,也不如亲自去看一次,耳听为虚,眼见为实,凡事要调查研究才能下结论。

百 闻 不 如 一 见
hundred hear not as one seeing

Usage Sample
You'd better go there yourself to find out how beautiful that park is. Seeing is believing.
