2nd day @ Wuxi. Pax: 3, taking Bus 133 at RMB 2 each from University south gate bus stand. Ticket p$ - RMB 210, come with a free stage performance. (actually it used to be RMB 150, without stage performance) We are very impressed by the giant size of the copper Buddha statue and palm. You can buy the cart... More

It's a beautiful day trip! In order to see this scenic spot you should expect to spend the whole day. It is well worth your time! You must try to capture the whole area, outside & in. Quite a hike up the stairs, but once you've done it the views make it worth your wild. The experience alone is worth... More

The height of the Buddha Statue is 88 meter. It is impressive. This is a fairly new facility. So, everything is modern. I went on a weekday. It is much better as I do not have to deal with large crowd. I took the electric cart for a fee to various attraction points in this park. The taxi ride from... More

The Lingshan Buddhist Retreat near Wuxi is more a theme park than a true center of Buddhist worship. There are some place for veneration and contemplation, but they are overwhelmed by the tour groups and tourists few of whom know much about Buddhist history in China and are seeking entertainment more than enlightenment. If you are interested in learning a... More

I find some of the critics here a bit hard and lacking understanding of what they were seeing. This is a temple, just not an old one. Temples do not need to be 500 years old to be temples. The big statue is what makes it a tourist attraction I guess. The big downer for me is the entry fee.... More

We visited during the afternoon on a Thursday afternoon. As a group of expats/locals living in a nearby cityi, we were looking for wee spot to explore. Big Buddha didn't disappoint, with nice luscious grassed areas we were allowed to sit and lie on! We viewed the water show from afar. A very relaxed afternoon. We enjoyed icecreams and admiring...

The Buddha statue stands at the height of 88 metres and the whole area is about 30 hectares. There are 10 stops of attraction after entering the main gate. So, be there early as you will need about half day to explore the whole place. We went at 9am & ended up finishing at 3pm. Highly recommended & well worth... More

Its a damned big budha, no doubts. But queue for an hour to get up to the foot of the budha, is ridiculous. Its elevator only; you (apparently) can't go up 'on foot', pardon the pun. The 'show' that is put on in one of the impressive buildings left me with a "really, is that it?" kinda feeling. Lots of... More

Very peaceful and beautiful. So much to see and not enough time. I wish I had more time, but since I was on a tour, I could only explore so much. But be fore warned, the washrooms outside before you go into the park smell REALLY REALLY bad! If you can hold on, use the washrooms inside the building, much... More
