Here's the official website http://glwangcheng.com So, it was foggy and some people might mistaken it for haze. Getting here is quite puzzling since Guilin isn't a small town but in fact a big city with big buildings. But the good thing, your offline google maps works with the satellite and the road are perfedtly aligned compare to when you're outside... More

At 130 RMB, this site bills itself as the Little Forbidden City. It is actually a university. The "historic" buildings are mock museums. There is nothing to show the historic value of the building or of the site itself. The best part of the site is the climb to the top of the hill on the ground. Great views. But,... More

Solitary Beauty Peak (独秀峰, Dú xiùfēng) lies in the center of an old walled palace, Jing Jiang Princes' City (靖江王城, Jìngjiāng Wángchéng). The palace is now part historic landmark, part college: Guangxi Normal University's main campus lies within the old walls. The climb up Solitary Beauty Peak is very steep, but takes less than 15 minutes to get to the... More

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
