The area now only contains very little of the original history; just a pathway and some railings as well as some inscriptions. The original building which was about 600 years old was destroyed by fire and a new one built in its place. I had an English speaking guide and without her it would not have been worthwhile. There is... More

The Solitary Beauty Peak is in the Wangcheng (Imperial Palace) scenic area. If you want to go up to the peak, you need to enter the Wangcheng (Imperial Palace) scenic area. The peak is beautiful and likes a needle sticking in the center of Guilin. You can find some inscriptions on precipices here. On the top of this peak, you... More

The inside of the old city walls are amazing. Please if you visit Solitary Beauty Peak then visit those. The best part of old Guilin was the peak. Even though it was in a busting city, this part was absolutely wonderful and you could get a 360 degrees birds eye view of the city. Other things to do in the... More

As earlier reviews had mentioned, the entrance fee to the Jinjiang palace compound with the Solitary Beauty Hill cost us a steep RMB130 each, with a discount for senior citizens. The palace complex was laid out along a central axis with the hill at one end, something like a mini Forbidden City. Had to be part of the guided tour... More

The official ticket price on the door is 130 rmb which is completely over price for what to see in there (well as a tourist who don't understand any chinese). The first palace is a recent reconstruction with tourist shop almost at the end of every single sights inside the complex. The explanation for the sights in english are very... More

Enjoyable views, interesting walk up, set in a university campus. We got a discount from our hostel, so worth it then, otherwise quite expensive. Nice views even with a December Haze.

The solitary beauty peak is the only peak standing in Jingjiang Prince City. The beauty of the hill is not just from its appearance but also from its history. There are many stone inscriptions on the hill, which are very amazing for me.

Paid RMB70 for a ticket to get into the old city and Prince's Palace, which included the right to climb the Peak. Need to be fit as the stairs are steep and relativey unsafe by Western standards. Outlook over Guilin from the top is worth the climb. There is an art gallery that is worth a look on the way... More
