This is around one hour drive from the Wuxi city center but definitely worth the visit as it is a big area with lot of temples and statues to see in addition to the main 88 metre high Buddha! You can get to the top of the big Buddha and there are nice views to the surrounding area. There is... More

We just got back from this place and we all had a nice visit. I suggest going when it's not too hot as there isn't much sun cover around. I also suggest paying the 25 RMB for the car that picks up and drops off at the main attractions (if its too hot)! Enjoy your visit and make sure to... More

It takes about one hour driving to reach the Wuxi Buddhist temple hills from Jyangjin city where I stayed for 5 days on a business trip. You cross a large peach tree plantation flat area that produces a juicy white bodied variety of delicious peaches to end up at the outskirts of Wuxi city. The nick name of Wuxi is... More

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...
