“Great views of GuLangYu island”
Review of Riguang Mountain

Riguang Mountain
Ranked #8 of 263 things to do in Xiamen
Attraction details
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The rock is smack bang in the middle of Gulang island, so when you get to the top you get great 360 degree views of the island and Xiamen city. The climb to the top is fairly leisurely, avoid weekends, public holidays etc as it will be busy and you will be have to queue on the stairs just to get to the top. At the top space is at a minimum, its only a small viewing platform and you'll be unlikely to have the place to yourself.
Entrance is 60元 and entitles you to visit the large aviary at the bottom of the rock filled with rare birds so keep your ticket after you have descended!
Visit after six o'clock and entry to the mountain is 30元 as the aviary closes at this time and the ticket will only entitle you to climb the rock, worth it though as its nice at sunset. Climbing any later than sunset and you will find that there are bright spotlights pointing at the summit that blind you from seeing much or taking any good pictures.

it is nicer to admire the rock from a far than actually climbing it.

The climb up to the top of this outlook is quite a lot of work....but the rewarding view is worth all the effort.

I have lived in Xiamen 7 years and I never went to the top for the first 5, it is just too crowded most of the time. Best time to visit week day afternoons, then it can be surprisingly pleasant. AVOID WEEKENDS!!!
