The paths around the lake and across the small bridges are quite flat. Shady trees keep you cool as you wander around. Although it is winter in China, the weather was a pleasant 20C. My travelling companion and I took our time, snapping photos of the islands and hills and across the lakes. It is peaceful like the West Lake... More

Visited this park on a day trip to Zhaoqing, disappointed to find it in the middle of the city when I was expecting a trip to a mountainous area. Peaks do not compare to the Guilin scenery. Boat trip into the cave to see the stalactites was over before we knew it. We also went into another cave, with an... More

We walk from the North Gate to the West Gate in a little over one hour but could have taken electric cars for a quicker trip. The main path was flat and could be used by strollers. Annoying to find extra charges to visit various caves, and even 2¥ to cross a swingbridge! Very peaceful on a week day, but... More

Big area with many caves. Our family took a quick 2-hour stop here. You have to pay a bit extra here and there, but it is just 10RMB or so for each special attraction, so definitely not expensive place to visit. There was a lady singing on a boat, and another boat with man playing flute - this created a... More

It's a very interesting place with a lot of beautiful scenery. However, almost all of the signs are written only in Chinese and I think that 60 CNY is a bit expensive, especially when you have to pay extra if you want to see any caves.

We had looked forward very much to visiting this park. Especially to the limestone caves and carvings. entrance fee was 60 RMB, and had this been it all, its been okay. But you also had to pay for every thing inside the park also. It irritated and ruined the overall impression. For Kinererene this is a park with clear Religious... More

The scenery outside is very nice, with Guilin style mountain and a nice lake. If you go there definitely enter from the main gate (East) otherwise you will need to take the boat to visit the main attractions. Some of the caves maybe nice, but unfortunately the Chinese way of conservation actually destroy the beauty out of it. Flashing lights,... More
