We were driven up to the top in a MPV. About 20 mins from the base. Try not to have a heavy breakfast as one might get uncomfortable during the winding drive up. Could not enjoy the city sight as it was foggy. Visited the...More

Everything is under construction and you have to pay to see everything 60 for weekend and 40 rmb for weekdays, which are foreigner prices. You pay 70 return for cable car up. The value is not worth the cost. Everything blocked and sign posts are...More

Firstly, there are a lot of road works around the base of the mountain (New Fuzhou Metro) so allow extra time - buses stop a couple of stops short of entrance. Walk up is only 2000 steps. Pick your time of day before the heat...More
