You have to take a guided tour to go inside. It is a hassle and a waste of time with the guided tour since there is not much too see and really not much to explain. They just want to make sure you spend more money at various stops.

Not sure why we visited this place as there are nothing much to see. I was expecting to see some historical items and listen to some history, but we only had a very brief summary which is nothing to shout about. They were proud of their encryption carvings on the hill but nothing much. As we were tired, we didn't... More

You pay 130rmb and after inside you have nothing to do or to see. In the middle you have small mountain...you can climb and take pics of the town around...only that! Avoid the place, save time and money.

A must visit in Guilin as the scenery on top of the Southern Peak is simply superb. You will need to climb quite a number of stairs but it will all be worth it once u reach the top. Don't forget to drop by at the examination hall where you will get to experience doing a mock examination and thence... More

We'll go over the high points first. We had a gracious guide who spoke excellent English. The grounds are pretty and well-kept. There is a karst with poems engraved on the side. OK. That was about it. The admission fee is high. There is a karst you can climb inside, but karsts are everywhere in Guilin. There is no need... More

Most expensive entrance fee in Guilin (130 RMB) but poor attraction. Actually there is very little to see but what is there is mostly fake. Only interesting part is climbing up the hill and making some pictures. Better to avoid.

Save yourself the entrance fee if you don't have Chinese speaking children age 6-12. There is a show filled guided tour designed for children, non of it in English, nor are the signs at the displays. The buildings are all "renovated", the gardens are boring and even the views are not worth the climb up the hill.

The Solitary Beauty Peak is of course the highlight but the tour around the palace complex was also interesting and insightful.

The Solitary Beauty Peak is the thing to do/see here. Climb (lots of steps) to the top for a great view over Guilin, its setting, the mountains/peaks that surround it and the river. Worth a half day. Nice park for a stroll, but the Peak is the thing to do here.

This was included on a half day private tour of Guilin. As you can see from other reviews, it is an average attraction. The part I liked the best was learning more about the examination that people took to become part of the government and I enjoyed seeing the testing area. If you have time and you are looking for...
