The main attraction is the Big Statue (Mother of Mercy) and the area surrounding and directly below it including descending tiers each with its own set of temples. The views of Foshan and surrounding area are pretty spectacular. But there are... More

Get up early and head to the park! You can catch a bus from Zumaio that will take about 45 minutes, depending on traffic. Once there, start your venture by climbing towards the top. Its an easy hike, so don't be intimidated! Beautiful views and temples.

Quite far from Foshan (30-40 minutes with the bus), this is a huge park where to spend the whole day in. The reduced fee for holiday was about 60 RMB but it was definitely worth it. Even if the map they provide you with is not so clear, one can find his way along the area (lot of walking and... More

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
