Attraction & Sightseeing In Guilin

Seven Star Park -- Solitary Beauty Peak -- Wave Subduing Hill -- Yangdi Village


Seven Star Park

Seven Star ParkSeven Star Park is one of the best urban parks in China and has something for just about everyone.

The park is named after the seven peaks located throughout here that are shaped like the Big Dipper constellation. Amongst the peaks are several explorable caves, including "Seven Star Cave", which are quite famous for having stalagmites, stalactites and other natural formations that resemble animals and landscapes. 

The rest of this fantastic park is filled with trees and gardens. With its beautiful peaks, caves and gardens, this park has enough to keep any visitor entertained for hours.

You may wish to avoid the park zoo however, as conditions in Chinese zoos can be upsetting for animal lovers.

How to get there: Take Bus No. 9, 10, or 11 from the railway station.
Open:
7:00am-9:30pm daily.

Solitary Beauty Peak (Duxiu Feng)

Solitary Beauty Peak (Duxiu Feng)Solitary Beauty Peak (Duxiu Feng) is one of Guilin's most prominent karst peaks and is located in the city center. 

If you are willing to make the 306 step trek to the peak, you will be rewarded with fantastic views of Guilin, the Lijiang River, and the surrounding peaks. However, the stairs are very steep and reaching the top can be dangerous. Depending on the weather and your experience level, it may be best to explore only part of the way.

The stairs to the peak start from a Ming dynasty palace on the eastern side of the peak, where a RMB4 entrance fee is charged.

Open: 8:00am-5:00pm daily.
How to get there: From the Guilin Railway Station, Bus No.1 reaches the west side entrance and Bus No. 2 goes along the eastern side of the peak.

Wave Subduing Hill (Fuboshan)

Wave Subduing Hill (Fuboshan)Wave Subduing Hill (Fuboshan), yet another of Guilin's karst mountains, has one of the most unique and interesting shapes of all the hills around here and contains many interesting sights. The mountain itself resembles a wave reaching up to the sky and descending down into the river.

The sights on the hill include a temple to the Wave Subduing General (Fubo Jiangjun), after whom the hill is named. Elsewhere on the hill, Returned Pearl Cave and Thousand Buddhas Cave are also great places to see some Tang and Song Buddhist statues. Lastly, the Wave Listening Pavilion, on the southeast cliff of Fuboshan, is a great place to view the surrounding area. Built in 1964, while not ancient, the Pavilion is a great place to relax and take in the natural beauty of the Guilin area.

How to get there: Bus No. 2 takes you near to the hill or you can reach it by bicycle.

Yangdi Village

Yangdi VillageThe most beautiful and unique peaks are along the Lijiang River between Yangshuo and Yangdi Village, which is about a third of the way to Guilin from Yangshuo. Look for "Crown Rock", "Mandarin Ducks Play in the Water", "Nine Horses Mountain", "Screw Mountain", "Mural Hill" and many other strange and fascinating peaks along the way to Yangdi.

How to get there: This trip can be cut short by taking a boat to Yangdi and then doing part of the return trip by bus, with a total time of around 6 hours. The price of the tour varies by season, at around RMB30 in the Winter and RMB60 or more in the Summer. Be sure to bargain and shop around (as some local travel agencies can charge as much as RMB100 for the trip to Yangdi).
