The park is a well thought scenery of lights using the Li river surrounding the city and its bridges. The sun and moon pagodas are indeed gorgeous, specially at night with the beautiful lights reflecting on the water. It is kind of built for tourist, kind of a Disney ride, but if you like lights, and relaxing views, it's definitely... More

Nice park for a walk and to watch chinese people practicing tai chi. I preferred the day view, because at night the colourful lights make the place seems fake and tacky. Green, blue, red, yellow lights were placed exageratedly. Don't worth the trip to Guilin.

Walk for free around the lake and enjoy the reflection of the pagoda lights in the lake. The path is curvy with some inlaid stone mosaics. In the morning, morning dancers congregate nearby. There is a Starbucks at the bridge. There was a small band playing on the bridge the night we walked by. Many people stroll around the lake,... More

We walked the area with our friend from Guilin, so we had a beautiful leisurely walk around the lake. We came upon the two pagodas during the early evening, so it was nice to see them lit up. Did not pay to see them close. Beautiful area for a walk.

I say it is a poor place to visit not because of the views, the views are great but not the entrance ticket. 50RMB for one entry...come on it is just two pagodas with not much history to tell! It is nicer to photo at the pagodas from the bridge, not worthwhile to get to the top. Absolutely no need... More

The Sun and Moon Pagodas look amazing when they are all lit up at night. The park around the lake is quite small with a few bench seats, but the lake is huge. The reflections of the colourful ligh ts in the water look amazing. It is a pleasant walk around the lake, notmuch to do otherwise

Did the wander around the pond today and saw the twin pagodas from about every angle possible. If you are looking at killing some time in town do it, otherwise you could have a massage for 40 yuan that would kill the same hour.

The pagodas are trully spectacular, but are set in quite a small park, in which there are just few benches and rocks on which you can sit and enjoy the view. However there isn't much space to rest and relax. We found that you get just as good a vewi from across the water outside the waterfront hotel. Initially just... More

These a very picturesque pagodas. It's free to take in the view from the other side of the lake. We also paid 10RMB for a cheesy photo of the two of us which was then printed and laminated on the spot. A quirky Chinese souvenir of Guilin.
