Might give this attraction higher points in the winter, but there's nothing much to see here and the sun was scorching hot. We went back to the hotel after a while

We were there late afternoon, there is nothing much to see there and the place not very well preserved, looked like an abandoned place to me.

The temple itself is surrounded by some construction during our visit, and within the compound there seems to be some work being done as well. Overall it is a very significant historical landmark which really could use some investment in preservation and restoration. It's a neat little place that one could spend an hour or two, that's right in the... More

This is actually a memorial dedicated to the 5 famous outcasts residing in Hainan. Nothing much to see and some of the exhibits were badly maintain. Very limited English narrations. Bring someone who reads Chinese and perhaps you'd get some useful info. Maintenance and cleanliness is poor and wonder what they do with the entrance fee collected.

Luckily for me my wife is Chinese so she interpreted the guides tour. There we're signs in English but not enough information to explain the importance of the temple. The rather rather disappointing but free Haikou museum is next to it. Do not confuse with the much better Hainan museum.

Visited the temple and although the price is cheap, the condition inside is, well pathetic. Dirt and leaves everywhere, and not a single bench was clean enough to sit on. The attendants were all sleeping, except one girl who was playing on her cellphone and didn't even bother a glance at us. This is 11am in the morning. Just affirms... More

Signages are all in Chinese. Non-Chinese educated visitors won't have clue as to whats happening. Why were the 5 officials banished? Why did a subsequent emperor build the halls in their memories? The stone statues of the 5 lords have only Chinese text. Non-Chinese educated visitors will be at a loss trying to figure out what is being said. The... More

Wugong Temple is a combination of an Old school complex, combined with modern museum which display the history of Hainan. The school complex, is a complex that was build several hundreds years ago to teach the local Hainan people how to read and write Chinese. As per June 2011, the entrance fee is 20 Yuan.

Maybe I've been soiled living and travelling in China. However this place did not feel very old. Most of the things there were copies and it has been heavily restored. Not worth your time unless you have a lot of time. On the plus side it was 30 RMB per person to get in so if you want to visit... More
