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!

I am writing this to warn all tourists. My mum and I were approached by many private drivers as we walked along the deng shan da dao ( route to mountain). They were persistent and pushy and even tailed us for quite a while. We met one guy who quoted us 40rmb to head up to the guan yin status... More

beneath the beautiful and picturesque mountains, and religious monesteries, and sites, lies a very pretty, but polluted little town called Xiqiao... Couldn't figure out why the air here was so hard to breathe... Finally figured it out... 10-15 minutes on the "village express" bus would give you an answer... An electricity-producing plant... right there and then, coal-generated electricity plant... that... More
