A good time to visit is in April or late September when the weather is not so hot. Try to avoid visiting during holiday periods as the crowd and queue for the cable car could be very long. Take a slow walk to appreciate the ancient buildings and the view of PengLai is beautiful on a clear day. The entrance... More

Childhood memory of this famous landmark was quiet and calm, often with no one there but us, however now days due to the over development of tourism sector in general, like most places, can be very busy during the summer holidays, winter can be too cold as the sea often freeze here. Best time to visit will be autumn and... More

We happily spent a few hours walking around the nice gardens and beautiful temples and caught the cable-car to the cliff-walk nearby which was stunning.

great day trip from Yantai to Penglai, lots of interesting old buildings to walk around and things to see. Def walk around the walls as this is the highlight for me - not many people do it and it gives you an idea of the scale of the pavilion. The cable car journey is also worth it too, although not...

Penglai is definitely worth visiting if you are close by, but not worth going out of your way to see. It is basically a fortress overlooking the sea, where in old China they used mounted cannons to defend against Japanese pirates. It is also revered by taoists as the location where the 8 immortals left the earthly realm.
