This was located in the Rong Lake area and was an old wall that was reasonably well preserved.The entire area is neat and tidy and a great place to walk. There was very little English explanation for this particular site.

The gate is located alongside a lake scenic walk. Apart from its history it does not look that impressive and can easily be overlooked as you focus on the attractions on the lake.

Ancient South Gate is a historical town city near to Rong Lake. Only the lower portion of the gate wall is the ancient remains while the other structures are newly built one. Just a photo-stop for visitors to the park.

A place you don't want to miss when you're here and it's fun to take photos at night at this place and have fun @ the gate.

Attractive by night and during the day. Combine it with a walk around the lake -- or farther up the river if you want. The strolling around the lakes is probably the very best thing about Guilin itself.

This is one of the sights you pass along when walking around the lakes in the city center. It's nicely lit at night and with a wet surface makes for nice reflections. However it is also not much more than that. You can view it...More

We went for a walk around the two lakes in Guilin (Banyan and Cedar lakes). On our way we came across this ancient gate. It is very impressive. Worth seeing.
