Definitely not worth the 120 Yuan entry fee. Good views from the peak, but wouldn't really recommend it as an attraction.

The complex has a view point where you can get great views of the city, however this is the ONLY interesting thing to do here and they charged 130RMB (US$20/person), really? Safe some money and get a nice boat tour instead!

We did not plan on going to the Solitary Beauty Peak, we originally were just planning on going to the University Art Centre.

It's another peak, just this time in the middle of town and you have to pay to get in to go up it, or get close enough for a decent photo. Better views outside of town

Really this is not a very impressive sight as Chinese sights go. It's small, it's not very original (but then again a lot of Chinese sights are rebuild/modified), it's not super glamorous. But still it has historical significance as the original center of Guilin and one of the places where Sun Yat Sen ruled/lived. Also it is pretty fun, because... More

It was the office and residential place for the governor of LiangXiang District in the Ming Dynasty. The original building structures were gone. There were museums build to show the history of that place. The exhibitions were alright. BUT you have to go with a tour to visit all the places, otherwise you can not even get in to some... More

This attraction is extremely overpriced, especially when I compare it to other amazing things I have done in China for a lot less money. The only good thing about this attraction is the peak itself, the surrounding area is boring. You get fantastic views from the top!!

I think this site would be easy to miss . You get to the gates of the Jing Jiang Princes residence by passing through the old city gates which are not far from the path around the lakes. As others say this former residence of a prince is now the Guilin Normal University for those studying the arts. We went... More

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
