Been in GZ for a number of years and have always wanted to make the trip to Xiqiao Mountain in Foshan. This site is absolutely fantastic! The location and the scenery and the temples the giant Goddess statue of Kwan Yin are all a wonderful experience that make Xiqiao Mountain a great day trip - one could actually spend 2... More

I highly recommend this park for those seeking some exercise, fresh air and a respite from crowds in Guangzhou or Shenzhen. I was there on a Saturday during the day in August and the number of people was very manageable, I think quite a few people came later at night to visit the Buddha. When I was there last weekend,...

I planned to go there for a whole day. Caught a metro from guangzhou, then the bus. Count 2 hours to arrive at the north entrance. Once there, you can choose to climb the mountain with a little train, or by feet. I recommend going on your own, as there are many things to see ! Take a guidebook at... More

Big guanyin statue at the top of the mountain even visible from the local roads, admission fee is RMB70, not crowded when we went, probably because of the high admission fee, lots of bused tourists, the walk is pleasant, lots of exhibits about the kung-fu master originated from Foshan, considered one of the top attraction in Foshan.

TA lists this as Foshan's top attraction, and it's not hard to see why. The guanyin statue at the top of the mountain is massive, and a cable car takes you most of the way up. From the top cable car station, there is a short (but steep!) walk to the statue itself. The forest park contains a number of... More

Words cannot fully express. Just visit the park. The admission fee was RMB 70 (in 2013) per person. Our visit was good as it was not so crowded. Don't visit on holidays.

Worth the arduous journey from Foshan. You can catch the number 2 tourist bus from Zumiao if you're in the Chancheng area: it drops you right at the front entrance in a cloud of peach blossom aroma, which is lovely. Don't worry about being ripped off by taxi drivers; you can reach the Bodhisattva Guanyin statue by cable car (30... More

Well we were taken by our chinese friend in his car , so can't comment on how to get here or how much is the fee to enter. To make things worse we had visited on a really crowded day , so the drive up the mountain top took pretty much around 2 hours. But the scenery was excellent and... More

Massive statue! Couldn't believe the size of it. Drove up there with Chinese friends so can't comment on taxis, hassle etc. Not a lot of English explanation of the statue or park though!
