- Went with our driver for the day who is also a guide and took us to the cave w/o many other people being there, Really great to see this place almost deserted and the illuminations / reflections were a great sight. Also a nice drive to the caves with rice fields and scenery.Written June 21, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This park is actually the core part of “two rivers and four lakes” Park, and it is the most popular tourist attraction in Downtown Guilin city. “RI YUE SHUANGTA” means the Sun and Moon twin towers, and there is a tunnel beneath the lake to connect these towers. To climb the tower or visit this interesting tunnel, you have to buy ticket for about 30 CNY($4.5). Come here at night to see the best night view of Guilin!

- Some of us always complain the expensive ticket price, but now it’s FREE for everyone! A small park but a world natural heritage, only 30 minutes you can finish this tour. Local people find it a bit boring but after all, it’s a symbol of Guilin City. Try NOT to eat those fake Beer Fish restaurants and Rice Noodles Stalls opposite the park entrance, overpriced and taste awful.Written March 15, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is the most favorable park for the local citizens, cheap entry fee CNY25 for two main Hills and two caves! Enjoy the best view of Li River, some breeze in a hot city, some ancient stone inscriptions and a ¥10 mountain slide. Local post-rock band “Misswoman” wrote a beautiful song “Dié Cai” for this mountain.Written March 15, 2023
- Nice view and environment, full of cheap hostel and hotel. Good for family, solo, or group traveler.Written September 3, 2019
- Visited the park as recommended by the local in the PM. Took the shuttle at RMB 20 from the entrance that bring me to the cave (closed at 5pm) to start w. As I am the only passenger in the shuttle, the driver/ guide explained some of the places while we drove pass. Interesting and colourful cave to start w but it is too tourism.
Board the shuttle after exiting from the cave and continue to go round the park. The shuttle stopped at some of the attractions for a quick photo shot.
From the entrance, it had a lovely bridge running across a river. Did not visited the zoo which was within the park.Written November 13, 2019
- Guilin was a unique experience my wife and I both enjoyed and still talk about months later. We walked the district examined a traditional pagoda style building commemorating the city during the day. After dinner we had a relaxing walk through the park amid the trees and ponds. It can be romantic. Food is always plentiful and high quality.Written October 7, 2019
- We walked around the area during the day and did the night cruise in the evening. You can book tickets near the sun and moon pagoda and they will let you know where to board the boat. The cruise is quite expensive at 210 each but you will go under many of the bridges in the area, go in two canals and see lots of the buildings and banks lit up at night. We had a full boat so had troubles seeing outside the cabin at the beginning but we lucked out when they allowed us out on the boat deck at the stern because it was too cold for many people. We got good photos on the water but you can get a similar experience walking through the area as well and take your time doing it! If we were to do this area again we would walk around at night as it is prettier at night and free to walk around.Written October 18, 2020
- From our hotel, we were close to the Sun and Moon Pagodas. The difference in atmosphere and memorability are significantly more enjoyable in the evening. I’d recommend a visit after visiting East/West Street. The night air, while still brutal were manageable in the evening. The Pagodas are nicely lit in the evening and much more picturesque. Nearby, there are street vendors and musicians making the ambiance of the attraction ideal.Written August 6, 2023
