The Area Around the Gate is Worthwhile
Oct 2020 • Couples
The Lake area around the gate is worthwhile to see during the day but at the night it is nicely lit for the cruises that go through. Very walkable and nice area near the gate but the gate itself is nothing special.

Historic gate
Jun 2019 • Couples
Well worth a visit when taking the scenic walk around the lake. There is an ancient banyan tree nearby and the whole area is beautifully lit at night.

Okay

Can see it while strolling near the area. Nothing very impressive. Okay for a quick stop if you are around this area.

Nice in passing, no need to detour to see it
Apr 2019 • Couples
It looks more striking at night than in day time. It does not have anything special, except for being historic. Most sights around it are nice and it is a very pleasant stroll around the lake with all the bridge, so you should see it without particular effort.

An Old Stone Wal Preserved
Nov 2018 • Couples
This was located in the Rong Lake area and was an old wall that was reasonably well preserved.The entire area is neat and tidy and a great place to walk. There was very little English explanation for this particular site.

Not that impressive
Sep 2018 • Couples
The gate is located alongside a lake scenic walk. Apart from its history it does not look that impressive and can easily be overlooked as you focus on the attractions on the lake.

Lovely area for a relaxing walk
Jul 2018 • Friends
I was introduced to this by native Guilin'er, I went in the afternoon but you all the local people here with families as it's well maintained and peaceful feel about the place.

The lake where you see the tourists boats also zipping through also has little 2 person boats for hire per half hour. I highly recommend hiring one of these and exploring the lake. You'll have fantastic views of the surrounding area near the middle of the lake.

Historical city gate near Rong Lake
Mar 2018 • Couples
Ancient South Gate is a historical town city near to Rong Lake. Only the lower portion of the gate wall is the ancient remains while the other structures are newly built one. Just a photo-stop for visitors to the park.

Awesome night lights!

A place you don't want to miss when you're here and it's fun to take photos at night at this place and have fun @ the gate.

Worth it
Oct 2017 • Couples
Attractive by night and during the day. Combine it with a walk around the lake -- or farther up the river if you want. The strolling around the lakes is probably the very best thing about Guilin itself.
