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

Went on the weekend as a break from a business trip. Lots of people and not cheap. I still would recommend going if you are trying to get exposure to Chinese culture and what people like to do on the weekends. It is a spiritual place. The Buddha is very impressive and there is a little museum that you can... More

I've done a lot of travelling in China and this is still one of the most impressive locations I've visited. Not only is the giant Buddha impressive, but the whole "wonderland" as they call it is well-maintained and worth the visit. There are a handful of other palaces and attractions to see at the complex, all of which were also... More

A visually stunning attraction, well worth taking the time to visit. It is worth the optional charge for the cart driven tour if you would like to save time.

The Giant Buddha is definitely worth a visit but it is not an historic site. In fact, the entire complex was built just to draw tourists to the Wuxi area. That said, it is impressive. First, there is the fountain and water show; then there is the huge Buddha itself and finally, there is the "Permanent Venue of the World... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Grand Buddha. Many buildings within the complex, and it takes some time to explore all the areas. Various sites to see including huge audio / visual display, water shows, grand hall and the Giant Buddha. Well worth the time.

This complex is so huge that I strongly advise you to take the electric buggy ride and pay the 25RMB. It is still growing as more buildings are undergoing construction during my visit. It is very cold in winter and it's windy due to its location which increases the cold feeling. There are 4 water shows a day, the highlight... More

We visited the Giant Buddha during Golden Week here in China, so the place was packed full of tourists. But it was absolutely worth the visit, even though the ticket price is a bit steep. We were lucky enough to pick a beautiful sunny day with clear blue skies which I think made the trip well worth it. We took... More

Grand Buddha at Lingshan is an entire complex including the giant Buddha statue, at least two museums, a park, and other attractions. Allow yourself at least a couple of hours to climb to the Buddha's feet with a beautiful view and explore its surroundings.
