Be prepared for the steep climb up thousands of steps if walking! But it is well worth the absolutely amazing views and the marvel of the Goddess statue!. Beautiful scenery, waterfalls, resting places to take photos. Relaxing and lovely.

Xiqiao Mountain is a volcano that has been silent for ages. Is located in the southern Nanhai District of Foshan City. It is not only famous for its height, but for its surpassing beauty.The perfect place to walk, to rest and calm. I recommend it.

You do not expect to find villages with farmers in a national park with less caring about environment. But they were nice

Very seasonal and a few attractions closed during winter. Take the mini car around and visit the water caves. Walk back from the temple to the main gate. Rmb70 entrance fee a little steep.

There are two times that you should go there. One is on the mid-autumn festival day, another is just around the full moon day. The mid-autumn festival is celebrated in quite a big way on the XiQiao mountain. There would be people paying all sorts of prayers to the various temples in the complex. Another time, go during the day,... More

Take some water and food with you not to waste time staying in lines to buy some soy product named Tofu (mostly sold there) and some ready-made meals like... More

If you are a Westerner this is a worthwhile day trip from Guangzhou but you really want to do some research to plan out your trip here. There's quite a lot to see but without knowing what's here it would be easy to miss the key attractions. Wear comfy shoes and take water. Also, food it not easy to find.
