The first thing that needs to be said about this place is that it is a LONG WAY from anywhere! From Wuxi station it takes about 45 minutes by taxi and will cost around RMB 70 (August 2016) or RMB 2 per person on a local bus, which I don't really recommend as it takes 1.5 hours, and is not... More

The place is set in a nice green surrounding. But the whole places is just about commerce... Just visit when you are close by... For sure do not drive here from Shanghai just for this! Please also not that the entrance fee is very high.

You got to try it, only 2.5 hours drive from Shanghai but it deserves a visit, need a full day and is quite expensive, but you can take advantage of the tickets discounts for students, elderly, etc. The food is not so good so be prepared or carry some lunch or snacks. Fabulous place!!

On a weekend day off during a business trip, my colleague brought me to Lingshan and I was first blown away by the sheer size of the Buddha (and yes, I recommend climbing the thigh-burning steps up to the statue as the views are great). This is a large complex and predominately filled with local pilgrims. As I was one... More

I love it here. It's quite far from the city centre. But it's worth the effort. It's so beautiful inside the park. It took me around 4 hours to look around. My favorite spot is the building where they held the performance of "Buddha's Life Journey". The ticket price is at 210 rmb per person, and it's including the show's... More

This is one of the more unique sights we ever saw. A Buddhist theme park built as an economic development project by the Wuxi government but serving as a gathering place for the various sects of Buddhism and dedicated to being a unifying force for all Buddhist believers. We went on a cool and very rainy day and it was... More

Went here in the afternoon which allowed the crowds to thin noticeably. The main statue of Buddha is awe inspiring. The lotus statue was not as impressive, too commercial for me. The real jewel to this site is the outlying temples. Prepare for jaw dropping beauty. The workmanship in the great halls is wondrous. I could have spent most of... More

The location is far away from the city anyway you can go by taxi. This is the huge place you have to spend your time at least 4 hrs. It is better if you go in the clear sky day because the buddha 88 meters height. Taxi at the exit charge 20-30 yuan if you wanna go back the city... More
