We stayed at Home Inn (Baotuquan) in the city center. From our hotel, we crossed the road and took a bus from the bus stop directly at the front entrance of Wulongtan Park to Qianfoshan (Thousand Buddhas Temple). The attraction is just 2.5 km from the city center and the public buses to the attraction are: No.2, 31, 48, K51... More

This park is very close to the centre of the city (Jinan). We could get here within 10 minutes. There is a entry charge - 30 RMB I think. Once you enter, you have various options and sights to choose from. The entire place is redolent with different incense sticks burning and has a very calming influence on the tourists.... More

It is quite easy to climb the Qianfoshan in about 1 hour (average speed). The park around it is also very nice a green island in the dusty streets of Jinan. On a clear day you can see the city of Jinan all over and if you are lucky even the Taishan in the south. It is good exercise to... More

Form the top of the hill, you have a wonderful view of the whole of Jinan City. Inside there is also a large Buddha statute for pilgrims. Can be tiring to cover the whole area in 1 day by foot.

We visited on a weekend and it was rather crowded. We came in at the back entrance and it was a pleasant quiet climb up to the top where the views may have been spectacular if it was not for the smog. The climb down the other side to the temple was very busy. I am tempted to say ‘too... More

I went at around end Feb, where plants are awakening from their sleep through winter. Along the way, there are numerous other attractions which one could visit - at an entrance price. Some are good, others are just ok. The peak has nothing more than a pavillion, and a guy offering phototaking service. On the way down, I passed by... More

Also a great thing to do in a group. Climb the mountain or shall i say walk the mountain loll, cause of the stairs. When on the top you have a great view of the city, esp at night when all the lights are on. Also good exercise

I went to see Qianfoshan at 5 am and it was worth the lack of sleep. There are beautiful statues and scenery. You can hike to the top of the mountain where there's a great view of the city and some local vendors. I hope I can see this again someday. This was the highlight of my trip to Jinan.
