Not worth the cost of admission....
Jun 2019 • Couples
There's no "royal residence" to see here, nothing is really old (the building was made in the 1950's) and the park itself is just O.K. Yes, you could have a nice view of the city from the top of Solitary Beauty Peak, but there are other places in the city where you could have a much better view...

Expensive Look At The Home Of Nephew Of The Ming Dynasty Emporer
Nov 2018 • Couples
This is an intersting tourist attaraction which also functions as a university but too expensive for what ws offered. It dates back to 1372 and was the home of the nephew of the first Ming Dynasty Emporer.

Saturday morning visit

The place does have its significance in this part of city. The Palace is actually part of a university now; the Palace is within confines of the city wall. Nice photo opportunity and good for history buff.

Too expensive in my opinion..
Jan 2018 • Solo
It costs 18$ US dollars to get in, in my opinion it was way too expensive. I love the city of Guilin, but I and different travelers don't understand why the prices for most attractions are so high in the city. Most of the parks except the Sun and Moon Pagoda park cost upwards of 10$ and 15$ . All in all the site was nice to see, you can enter certain buildings with exibitions inside, go in an ancient cave/temple and climb up the hill where you'll find a very nice view of the city.

Worth a visit if you have time
Sep 2017 • Couples
Our Taxi driver got us entry for 100 as against the 130 normal entry but it was without the guide. A good English speaking guide would have made it more interesting?
Nice place, gardens average. There is a new multi-media area which was interesting and a couple of shops selling art that were interesting.
Worth a look but if you are short on time there are more important things to see in Guilin.

Small place with high admission fees
Oct 2015 • Friends
You have to take a guided tour to go inside. It is a hassle and a waste of time with the guided tour since there is not much too see and really not much to explain. They just want to make sure you spend more money at various stops.

A Glimpse of history
Dec 2015 • Family
Not sure why we visited this place as there are nothing much to see. I was expecting to see some historical items and listen to some history, but we only had a very brief summary which is nothing to shout about. They were proud of their encryption carvings on the hill but nothing much. As we were tired, we didn't climb up the Southern peak. Had a taste of how a scholar take their exam during the olden days but that was about it. Nothing impressive

High price nothing to see..don t go!
Dec 2015 • Family
You pay 130rmb and after inside you have nothing to do or to see.
In the middle you have small mountain...you can climb and take pics of the town around...only that!
Avoid the place, save time and money.

Awesome scenery
Oct 2015 • Couples
A must visit in Guilin as the scenery on top of the Southern Peak is simply superb. You will need to climb quite a number of stairs but it will all be worth it once u reach the top. Don't forget to drop by at the examination hall where you will get to experience doing a mock examination and thence a small graduation ceremony. Please do bring an English speaking guide.

Definitely not worth the entrance fee.
Dec 2014 • Family
We'll go over the high points first. We had a gracious guide who spoke excellent English. The grounds are pretty and well-kept. There is a karst with poems engraved on the side.

OK. That was about it.

The admission fee is high. There is a karst you can climb inside, but karsts are everywhere in Guilin. There is no need to pay 130元 to climb this karst.

The palace was burned to the ground at the end of the Ming Dynasty. The only thing left of the original building is the foundation. The current building on the premise is a 1950 meeting hall constructed in the "Revolutionary Chinese" style. Again, you will see these buildings everywhere and they convey no sense of history or place.

Guilin is a great city with lots of stuff to see. Give this one a miss.
