Empty in the morning but wait until 10am for photos
Apr 2019 • Solo
I was there at 9am maybe. There was me and 2 other people. However the city might be a bit fogy in the morning. The fod would clear up after 10am, which makes photos of the old city roofs better. So I would get there for 9.30am, walk around (there's also a cafe there) slowly and then walk up to the top of the tower to take nice photos at about 10am

If you have visited the Forbidden city well this is a smaller Palace well worth a visit. The guided tour is quite long but is free.

Incredible Views for a Great Price
Dec 2018 • Solo
What an amazing find. The entrance fee was 35¥ (or about $7) It’s a steep climb to the top of the hill but once you’re there, there are a lot of great cultural sights: two shrines, a bell and drum tower, a tea bar, and of course the 6 floor Wangu Tower. The views from the top of the tower are SO worth the climb!!

Great view of the ancient town!

This Pavilion is at the top of a small mountain. It is a bit of a climb but well worth it. Regretfully (or thankfully) it was closed for repairs so we could not climb up all 5 stories. The setting is relaxed and park-like. It is a delightful hike and we passed many interesting shops on the way up and back down..

Peaceful park, great views.

This is just behind the Mufu Palace but requires another 50RMB ticket, which many will decide against. They'll be missing out but their loss makes this all the more a tranquil place to wander round and see across the city. The pagoda at the too is very impressive on the outside, as are the accompanying smaller buildings, but the interior's two middle floors were being renovated. Still, climbing to the last accessible floor for superb views over Lijiang is a must. Other highlights include a walkway covered in gently swaying, tinkling bells and gradually ascending/descending paths through the trees (much better than the stairs).

Lijiang View from Pavilion
Jun 2017 • Solo
This place located inside Lijiang Old Town, you can enter this place from behind of Mufu Palace. From here(up of the Pavilion, go upstair around 4or 5 floor if i am not mistaken), we can see Lijiang view (old and new one)

Nice view from a modern Pavilion
Aug 2016 • Couples
Nice view of the entire Lijiang city and the mountains from the top floor on the pavilion. The building is only a few years old and there are paintings on display along the wall on each floor as you ascend. The surrounding buildings seem a bit of a mess and lack maintenance, though they are very easy to skip as the attraction here is the view.

Makes a nice detour while strolling around the old town, but isn't worth going too far out of your way to reach.

Breathtaking views of Lijiang
Sep 2016 • Couples
Unless you are a poverty-stricken backpacker don't listen to the people moaning about the ¥50 entrance fee. It's totally worth it for some great panoramic views of Lijiang. Go early in the morning (opens 8:30) to avoid the crowds.

expensive

I went to MUFU and when I walked up, there is a ticket booth that required me to pay CNY50. I think it is over priced because I paid 50 for MUFU and another 50 for Wangu. Actually it's nothing much up there, just to see the whole Lijiang old town from the top. It depends on what you want, but personally I think the view from MUFU is ok, no need to pay another CNY50 up there. Or you can sit down and relax at a cafe near Wangu, there are a lot of cafes where you can see nice view too, though a bit lower view.
