Very big Budha and very well decorated garden, it is an amazing things. The shiw maybe a short one and doesnt reveal much of the Budha way to find enlighngtenment but the place is really ready for something bigger than that

A very nice park with a lot of religious symbol, unfortunetly every thing is organized for you to pay a maximum. 210RMB to enter when the average is not more than 60 in China, shops everywhere. I have a student card and can have 50 off. It s the second time I went there and for the second time they... More

I visited this place during my trip to Shanghai on May 2014. This place is very huge, neither the Giant Buddha!!!. In love with their garden. The garden is very beautiful especially when you can see the beauty of the cherry blossoms and the peonies here. The garden and this place are well maintained too. I also saw the opening... More

I started in Shanghai at the Shanghai Rail station. Note that when you exit the metro and are standing facing the rail station the ticket off is to the right across the street. Follow the signs to a building across a busy street and go to the 2nd floor. I found the English window and bought a 9:20AM ticket with... More

This is a very awesome place to visit if you are in town. The area is absolutely gorgeous and you could easily spend a half day walking around if you are solo. I will admit, there is very little English around, but it is still enjoyable to see for yourself.

The place is not too far from city. Its clean, but entrance fee on the high side. RMB210. Buddha status is huge. Feels more commercial and touristy than being a religious place.

With such a wide space, walking around is nice and fun to do. Do not forget the show on the opening of the lotus flower. Maybe you will get some blessings from Lord Buddha, mechanically :P Have to go up to the grand Buddha... it is a must. Otherwise it will be a waste. Spend as much time as possible... More

We caught the high speed train out of Shanghai to Wuxi and then caught the number 88 bus from the station to Lingshan Dafo for a day trip. This is easy to do and well worth the effort in my view. This is a relatively new attraction having only been open since 1990. It has to be said that the... More

The place is gigantic with many gardens to walk around. There are the shuttle bus to go around the attraction. I am impressed with the fountain show which the little Buddha is emerging from the giant lotus at the end. There is a beautiful palace which the interior is very pretty and the restroom is the best, very clean compared... More
