close distance to city with a few direct bus lines into the city. Easy hike with amazing city views. If you hike higher and pay an entrance fee, you see a temple with caligraph.

Ok you can get a number of different buses inc. 7 and 73 and it only cost 1 rmb. Then if you want the easy option hop on one of the grey minivans for 7 rmb subject to a full load of 6 people, and they will drive you up to the temple. The temple is worth the effort, as... More

Loved it...best to have lunch at the vegetarian restaurant situated next to the temple. It is very relaxing and the walk around the temple is very refreshing.

I was hoping for a mountain hike to see some Chinese flora and fauna, but in reality Drum Mountain is more of a city park, which is very crowded.

Bottom line, if you are going for the view, make sure you can clearly see the tops of the skyscrapers in town before you go, otherwise mostly a wasted trip unless you like to hike.

Gu Shan is easily accessed from downtown Fuzhou in around 15-20 mins. A taxi ride from the centre will cost around 20RMB or take a local bus from Hudong Lu for 2 RMB. You can walk the hill comfortably in around 1hr 15 mins, it's 1900m high. Along the way, souvenir and food vendors litter the path. Be sure to... More
