We got a great look at these on the night cruise through the lakes. These are very impressive, day or lit up at night.

The two pagodas sit prominently in the Shan Lake, the none closest to the river and are quite impressive but like much in Guilin there is a charge to enter. You get great views from various places around the lake.

This park is in the heart of town with beautiful views both day and night. Our accomodation was set between the two areas of the lake which is spilt by a major roadway.

You have to see these and the glass bridge at different times of the day to experience them with different lighting and by boat or by foot around the lake walks.

Interesting enough by day but at night time with the reflection across the lake it is well worth a walk to see them.

The Pagodas are beautiful and even prettier when lit up at night. You can walk around the park to view them and there is a fee to go in the pagodas.

We visited the park and pagodas both day and in the night. The night reflections are great photo opportunities and the walk around the paths is both easy and pleasant exercise and there are many lovely views.

The Moon Pagoda is nices. The Sun Pagoda is deceiving, you can only go up to the last floor, but the stairs are very difficult to climb. Fortunately there is a elevator

Walking the streets of Guilin at night and came across the Sun and Moon Pagodas just across Shan lake. A great place for a selfie. We also walked further south along the banks of the Lijiang river and came across some lit cliffs that changed...More
