I had a day off from work and I decided to come here for a visit with my friend. It's easy to get there. The whole experience was quite nice expect this place was packed with tourists. But climbing thee mountain was really nice.

Hacked out through the mountain. Many Chinese tourists, all having a good time. Few westerners. Contrary to tourist books and postings, the subway goesall the way out to the park. Make sure to take the shuttle bus to avoid a lot of uphill walking.

The main attraction at the xishan park. Went down along the cliff's steps to the dragon's gate. Maybe it was too crowded with tourist. Couldn't stay at that place for long since the temple was small.
