Entrance fee 20 RMB (usually incorporated as part of a tour)

If you have never seen a Banyan Tree, its pretty neat however if you have seen one before, this would be a boring stop.

The park itself is well landscaped and cared for. The tree itself is protected by a fence which is a downer but understandable considering how many people visit this place.

Our tour group only gave us 30 minutes for this place and they were correct. Just enough time to take a photo or two and you had enough.

Visited the tree as it was part of our guided tour. The 1400-year-old banyan with its many "off-springs" was worth a brief look, perhaps more so for those who have seen the old Liu San Jie movie which featured it.

The tree is big enough to give the impression of 4000 years
what is amazing is how it prevents itself from breaking using it s own branches to support itself!!
once there have a look at the people turning around the tree "TO LIVE 99 YEARS" as per their saying :)

Rather than pay to see the Big Banyan, simply take the small road to the left of the park. It takes you to a viewpoint that's just as good as the one in the official park. It's impossible to touch the banyan since it's barred off, so why pay? The park does, however, offer a couple of museums and the chance to don traditional Chinese costumes for a small fee. These make for some great photos.

It's a hot day Yesterday, Aunt, cousin and I drived there at about 15:00. It's so hot that we stay in the park no more than 30 minutes. The only scene in the park is the Big Banyan Tree, It is so big that covers 1000 square meters, I guess!! In story, Sanjie Liu and Bull Brother fall in love under the tree. I love this story but it felt a little bored.
