Top Attractions in Guizhou
What travelers are saying
- It's a good park to visit in Gui yang city for a day trip. The park fee is about 1 USD per person, and you could spend the whole day there including hiking, visiting the zoo (at no charge), visit the historical cave, the lake and the temple. The view is very beautiful with lot of monkey surronded. I would say it's one of the best city park in China.Written April 8, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I arrived to tongren Airport at 3:30pm, took a bus to downtown bus station and then took a another bus to Jiangkou which is the closest town to Fanjing Mountain, and then I took a bus from Jiangkou at5:30pm to the bottom of the mountain where they have many hotels and restaurants, right beside the entrance.
I'm not sure when does the mountain open but I went to the tourist center at 8am and bought a ticket for 120RMB, including the sightseeing bus which takes you to the cable car place and hiking trails.
I wanted to take the hiking trails but I couldn't find the place where to start so I ended up buying a one way cable car ticket which took about 10mins to get to the top.
It took me about 3h to go around the whole mountain, it was really amazing. the landscapes, the scenery were breathtaking.
On the way back, I took the hiking trails which took me 1h30mins to the sightseeing bus place but without any breaks.
I'd recommend taking the cable car up since there are many places at the top of the mountain that needs hiking and would too tired to see all if I took the hiking path up. but I like the way back, it was cool, just forest though, no landscapes or anything, but it was cool to breath all that clean air in and listen to the pure sound of nature.Written June 22, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Like many ancient towns in China, this one is gradually becoming a commercialized tourist attraction. Fortunately some ancient houses still remained. There is only one major commercial street selling local food specialties. It is fun to walk through and try some of the local products.Written November 11, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- If you're in the Guizhou province you must visit the Jiulong Caves in Tongren. Every moment is breathtakingly beautiful and worth your time. I loved it, and you will too!Written August 20, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I stayed at the old town for one night and had time to stroll around the riverside and over the old bridge offering beautiful night views.It was quite busy at night with people walking around to relax and to shop.Written September 3, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Being a teacher in China, I have heard about this place for several years and finally decided to go there.
The scenery is beautiful, but the park is quite large so I would take a day or two to explore the entire park; therefore, I recommend staying in the area close to the park. A bus ride takes a while and is not super cheap.
I did not go to the Rhino falls and do regret that decision, but after going to the main falls I was too tired to climb the stairs. Besides, I had to catch the bus.
THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR FASHIONISTAS IN SUMMER DRESSES AND SANDALS/SLINGBACKS OR DRESS SHOES OF ANY KIND. Casual dress of shorts, t-shirts, good athletic shoes that are comfortable with firm traction is the recommended fashion.
Do not go in the summer, if you can avoid it, because it was very hot and extremely crowded. Everyone was pushing forward to be the first through the ropes when they were opened by the guards. In addition, Asian women usually use umbrellas in the summer to keep the sun off their skin. This can pose a hazard in crowded places-I almost had my eye poked out.
The Water Cave experience is a must, you actually walk through a cave behind the waterfall. It is cool, and the water dripping on you is refreshing. CAUTION: It is a little dark and very wet. You will get quite wet and even a little dirty. Some steps in the cave a slippery, too. I needed help in some areas. Bring a poncho if you don't want to get wet.
I would visit again, but do things differently.Written February 17, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We went by car with a driver and a local guide from Guiyang. The scenery along the highway was beautiful. It is almost like northern Italy with tunnels and high bridges boring through mountains and connecting hills. It took about 3 hours to reach the destination. The village has expanded both in population and new constructions with the increase in popularity in recent years. It has become very commercialized and fortunately the Miao people still live there and make their living in tourism. This place maintains the characters of the Miao village with its unique architectures. We can still experience the Miao culture. Since November is the end of the tourist season, there are far fewer large tour groups and the streets are less chaotic, and make visiting more enjoyable.Written November 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Much better experience than expected. The welcome process and entertainment is worth making this village a stop. Would be good to blend this village in with some other small normal villages in the area. Small entrance fee is with the rice wine welcome, entertainment and photo experience.Written April 9, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We visited as part of our private tour. Not realizing there was an elevator for a round trip journey to reach the gorge beforehand, we took the stairs down to the gorge. There were countless steps and absolutely not ideal for weak knees. I highly recommend using the elevator but the walk will be farther to reach the viewing platform for the major waterfall. After reaching the fall, find the hanging bridge to cross to the other side to head back to the elevator. The view is also spectacular. We took the elevator up to exit. It was still quite a walk uphill to reach the parking lot after exiting the elevator.
There were not too many visitors in the morning and it was perfect for taking photos.Written November 14, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- At the coach stop and entrance to the park, we were led through some market stalls, selling steamed corn on the cob and sweet potatoes, but we just bought some round local bread, which was tasty, for 5 yuan and half a kilo of peanuts, boiled in their skins, for about 8 yuan. There were several old ladies, at least in their 90’s, selling garlands of flowers, but I bought one for Ling, from a persuasive younger one, for 10 yuan.
Then we walked through some amazing rock formations, with stone steps all the way through, down one set of 5 steps, along a flat bit then up another 5 steps and so on. I don’t why they just couldn’t make a continuous sloping path, instead of all these steps. Some places had small water falls and stepping stones over running streams. The rock passages were sometimes only wide enough for one person to pass at a time and had roots of trees growing through the rocks, with amazing twisting shapes and felt as hard as the rock itself.Written March 27, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This is a very good example of the typical wooden houses and villages of this area. The area is very popular with local tourists, but will give you a good opportunity to learn more about the Dong people. Many shops and restaurants. We stayed in a local hotel in the village which was great.Written October 7, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- It is only 40 minutes away from Huangguoshu Waterfal. On the way to the cave, there firstly appears a huge Chinese Character of Long(Dragon) on the ground. There is a underground river running through the cave. You need to take a small boat and explore the cave. It feels much cooler.Written July 17, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I would say it's famous, nice, beautiful, easy to reach there. But, it's not that fun, nothing much to do, because you won't take much time to spend there.Written April 8, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- People living there are so isolated, you actually become part of a live museum with actual people living in it.Written November 9, 2012This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
