Guanyin (Buddha) statue is the highlight
Feb 2021 • Couples
National forest park and national geological park with lots of hiking options, gardens (peach, bamboo etc.) and the Buddha as main attraction. Ask before you go on one of the buses which direction, they take different turns sometimes. Great for taking pictures and there's some amazing views as well. We spend roughly 3 hours there but you can easily take a day to visit this attraction!

Great day out in the South China Sea
Aug 2019 • Family
A beautiful place to visit on the outskirts of foshan city, clean air great exercise and awesome for photos, my wife’s office is very close by so I often go there to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, the statue is a beautiful landmark and the views from the top are great, a must see if your visiting foshan. A real taste of this amazing country China.

Mountain Lake + Guangyin Statue
Dec 2019
The view of the city is stunning, the surroundings of the Guangyin temple are beautiful, you can choose 3 ways to go to the top: cable car nearby Listening Lake, by foot entrance nearby Jianpu East Road portal or by car to the parking right down the temple area.
Enjoy your time and burn incense for multiple purpose (3 each time).
Take a look at middle mountain lake, it's a peaceful atmosphere, if you're lucky they will have a Foshan Lion Dance presentation

Cracking Hike, Stunning Scenery.
Dec 2019 • Solo
I took the 226 bus from Foshan all the way to the foot of the mountain / ticket office. The lady in there spoke English and asked if I wanted to take the scenic car tour. I didn’t. The ticket for the car was ¥70 and the one I got was ¥55. I walked all the way to the top, taking the 700 steps route. It was a heck of a work out and the views on the way to the top were stunning! Once at the top, it was great strolling around, taking pictures, soaking it all in. I decided that I didn’t want to walk all the way back to the bottom so paid ¥20 to take the car back down. Well worth it! I’d definitely suggest this to anybody - it’s just as good as the Buddha in HK, but in the mainland. So if you can’t get across the border just head here instead.

Girl Buddhas need love too
Feb 2019
A Good place to hike, take photos and see the surroundings. It is a bit far from everything else and taking a car there isn't cheap but it is definitely scenic and as cool as the Big Buddha in Hong Kong

Xiqiao Mountain
Sep 2019
A word of advise: Not a lot of people speak English in this province so it will be very hard to negotiate anything (i.e fare, spots you eant to go to, etc). Better if you have a guide of some sort.

We went to Xiqiao where there are temples and a huge Buddha on top of the mountain. Nothing much aside from that. If that's what tickles your fancy (and a good cardio workout) then this place will be a great stop for your trip.

Such a beautiful place
Jan 2019 • Solo
I was there mid January 2019 traveling from Guangzhou to the park by public bus. From Guangzhou's Jiaokou station, the bus 251 took 2 hours to get to the park and the cost was 4RMB. There are several entrances to the park and I ended up entering on the West gate, which doesn't go straight to the Budha, I had to walk the mountain uphill as this entrance is on the side of the Budha. The hike was very tiring, but totally worth. Beautiful forest sceneries all the way and the people I found always helped with directions. the Budha was nice, but due to the smog, views weren't clear and I could barely see the city. Since the bus to Guangzhou took so long I ended up not seeing much more of the park, but it was definitely worth it.

Wonderful outdoor stroll
Sep 2018 • Couples
We went there for a relaxing break, and glad we chose this place! There are temples, forests, lakes, and interesting museums inside. We were not able to finish seeing 100% of the park, as it is huge. No need to carry too many bottles of drink. You can buy doufuhua (bean curd), vegetarian snacks, instant cup noodles, drinks, and ice cream inside the park. They are spread over the park. You might meet a banana/fruit seller as well. The incense stick is so neat and smells so nice. We bought back for aromatherapy at home. In summer, we recommend you bring a t-shirt just in case you sweat a lot. And mosquito repellent if you are planning to stroll the forest. You can do pre-wedding photoshoot there. Lots of beautiful spots for photo taking.

Loved it!
Aug 2018
Such a beautiful place! One of the best I’ve been in China so far. Easiest way to get there is take a subway to one of GF stations ( don’t remember which one unfortunately) and bus 127 from there. 70 ¥ entrance fee plus take a little shuttle bus if don’t feel like a long walk.
