“Playground of childhood”
Review of Penglaige

Reviewed February 21, 2014

Childhood memory of this famous landmark was quiet and calm, often with no one there but us, however now days due to the over development of tourism sector in general, like most places, can be very busy during the summer holidays, winter can be too cold as the sea often freeze here. Best time to visit will be autumn and spring, and if you are lucky, you might see a mirage, a regular natural sighting here!

We happily spent a few hours walking around the nice gardens and beautiful temples and caught the cable-car to the cliff-walk nearby which was stunning.

It is a very large area and it was very pleasant to be able to walk aound the fort/naval base which was very important in its long history. The Commanders head quarters is now a series of small museums containing history of the wars, weaponary and the previous layout amongst others

The Pavillion itself is very old and again with a BC history from this high point you can see it has control of any entry from sea to the port.

The ship museum was very good.

Worthwhile - we spent 4 hours there.

great day trip from Yantai to Penglai, lots of interesting old buildings to walk around and things to see. Def walk around the walls as this is the highlight for me - not many people do it and it gives you an idea of the scale of the pavilion. The cable car journey is also worth it too, although not for those who are a bit nervous as there are no windows in the cable car. Liked this so much we did it 3 or 4 times!

Penglai is definitely worth visiting if you are close by, but not worth going out of your way to see. It is basically a fortress overlooking the sea, where in old China they used mounted cannons to defend against Japanese pirates.

It is also revered by taoists as the location where the 8 immortals left the earthly realm.
