“Banyan Tree”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

The big banyan tree is worth seeing, but not worth taking a whole day to see. We were able to travel to the banyan tree by moped.

“Bad!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

There's nothing much to see. Don't waste your time going there. Entrance fee is not expensive, but it is just a huge ancient tree.

“I know its just a tree but it is a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Yes its just a very, very old tree and you have to pay to get in but....
its unbelievable. The tree is so old that it uses its own branches to keep it in balance! Its hard to describe so you have to see it to believe it. There is not much else in the park to see but lots of tourists but this tree is worth it. I was mad at my wife that she dragged me and paid entrence for just a tree but after you see it, you view nature in a different way.

“It's big and you can view it from the road for free”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Pros:
- it's a really big tree

Cons:
- entrance fee

This tree is huge. You can see it from the main road but we almost missed it because we thought it was a big green hill! I'd recommend seeing it but probably not paying the fee to actually "see" it

“Banyan Trees Are Amazing and Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

The Big Banyan Tree in the Yangshuo area was no exception; it was amazing and beautiful. Although there was a large crowd there when I went, it is roped off so you can still get great views and photographs of it. Definitely worth seeing, as is the whole Yangshuo area. If you go to this area, also consider a Yulong River Raft Cruise.
