The inside of the old city walls are amazing. Please if you visit Solitary Beauty Peak then visit those. The best part of old Guilin was the peak. Even though it was in a busting city, this part was absolutely wonderful and you could get a 360 degrees birds eye view of the city.
Other things to do in the old city include:

Two caves
An old palace
The 4th most famous pond in Guilin

In a nutshell: it was amazing

Located in the Guilin Prince city, solitary beauty peak is part of city. If you visit Guilin and want to take some excellent photo of Guilin city. It is the top choice for you. BTW, one the peak, you can find some relics, which will tell you the history of this beautiful city.

As earlier reviews had mentioned, the entrance fee to the Jinjiang palace compound with the Solitary Beauty Hill cost us a steep RMB130 each, with a discount for senior citizens. The palace complex was laid out along a central axis with the hill at one end, something like a mini Forbidden City. Had to be part of the guided tour in Mandarin to enter and see the buildings. Although it may have once been the centre of governance and historically important, most of the present day buildings in this palace are poor reconstructions after having been destroyed by fires and the Japanese. So it lacked authenticity and the cheap looking interiors, displays and side-shows only made it worse. The only part that looked old and interesting were the examination "cubicles".

The base of the hill contained an amazing cave tunnel network with a rather strange horoscope gallery. However, it ended with the usual shop trying hard to sell its stuff. After the tour, we climbed the steps up to the top of the hill which had a temple and viewing decks. The views weren't exactly beautiful due to the haze that day and the surrounding buildings in the city were rather ugly.

To sum it up, I was disappointed and didn't enjoy the visit.

We were taken to this place by a cab who intimated it would be better than where we asked to go - he was wrong !It cost 130rmb each to get in , everything was written in Chinese and it was quite hard to understand what was going on . This place was the old admin centre for Guilin 600 years ago and the buildings were good although they looked as if they had been done up like the Chinese like to do .At the bottom of the complex there is a good peak you can climb with good views over Guilin . There are better views down the road in Diecau park which is where we asked to go in the first place . We went there afterwards , it's great and only costs 30rmb. I would not bother with this place .

The official ticket price on the door is 130 rmb which is completely over price for what to see in there (well as a tourist who don't understand any chinese). The first palace is a recent reconstruction with tourist shop almost at the end of every single sights inside the complex. The explanation for the sights in english are very minimal. There are guides who explained the sights only in chinese everywhere which seem to be part of the ticket price like it or not, so unless you can understand mandarin or have english guide, this place might be better and worth the money.
