We were biking in the area so we stopped in to see this majestic old tree. Apparently if you walk around it three times it will bring good fortune, health and something else, maybe luck! What the heck we covered our bases and made sure...More

This was a bit of a bust for me. We had trouble finding the actual tree (which may seem hard to believe), the park is not up kept particularly well. We got lost a few separate times prior to seeing the tree which was somewhat...More

The big banyan tree is located around halfway along the Shi Li Hua Lang Scenic Area. Coming from either way by foot takes 30 minutes or so. The entrance fee was 19 CNY per adult. However, inside was only a big banyan tree on a...More

The Banyan tree is huge, but it is not worth making a special trip just to see the tree. The rest of the park is just typical Yangshuo scenery, beautiful but not extraordinary. If you go, be prepared to see lots of vendors and tourist...More

It is just a huge and old tree but worth seeing. Very unique tree structure and located right off the main road not far south from town.

Honestly I rarely if ever give bad reviews but that was such a waste of time I can't even cope with myself for going. Paid CNY19 (which I found a little steep before I even went in) then when I walked right past the tree...More

Tree itself is impressive, but don't come here only because of the tree. Its made as an touristic attraction - mainly for local Chinese tourists. The site itself is crowded with people and street vendors selling various souvenirs. I would not recommend to go here...More
