Layer after layer another temple up to the hill. Lot of stairs to climb. But for 30 yan they can bring u up with an electric kind of train. Might be smarter. Interesting vieuws and make a walk in the parcs with the small ponds. Nice pictures from the pagoda s and temples. If u in the Emu hostel they... More

If you like the above mentioned, you are in the right place in Dali! The architecture is so exquisite it is almost surreal. It is also a nice place to get outdoor. I was greeted with spectacular sunset during my visit. I would advise seeing the place entirely on foot, so as not to miss any photographic opportunities.

You will spend more time here that you planned. As soon as you reach this place, you will realize that there are not only the pagodas, but a huge park well kept full of temples that stretch up to the mountain. There are also few lakes and flowers around this area. The pagodas are very cool, pretty old but still... More

They make you pay a big price just to go see some silly 3 towers of nothing where you can't even go inside. Avoid this tourist attraction at all costs. The single pagoda to the south is more worth visiting and best of all, it's free.

Buildings are still in great shape and are quite beautiful, but Jesus, how can they get away with charging Y120. No thanks

The three pagodas of Chongsheng Temple are within a very large compound, which has numerous other buildings and exhibits worth visiting.

A (very) long avenue with many temples along the way. Actually, it reminded me very much of the Forbidden City in Beijing, though here there is obviously no "imperial" touch. The place is very well-kept, clean and handsome. As you proceed uphill, you get some view over Erhai lake in the distance, which is a nice bonus. Tips: - it's... More

This place is a must see while in Dali. Was not expecting much when this was on our list ( not another Pagoda ) but it just blew me away the size of the grounds are enormous and there is much to see and do while there. As they say in China JUST DO IT.

Take the green (colour not environmental) 'taxis' to the top of the complex and then walk you way slowly down through the temples to the 3 Pagodas and the reflection pools.
