The pictures on the internet of the mountain looks very nice but in reality when you get there the scenery is mediocre and there is not much to look at except for the Statue. If you are a very religious person that maybe this is a place that you can visit and have some value. Unfortunately there is a run-down... More

I enjoyed this journey. I happened to be a day of celebrating Guanyin's birthday. I saw some followers of her. This showed me that this place is not just for tourists but that it is a place that is appreciated by the local people. I warn you, take plenty of water to walk to the top as there are many... More

Really nice sight to see. Not only on the top of the mountain but along the way also. Recommend to walk to the top. It is a two hour walk with few five-minute stops along the way bit there are some majestic views. I've posted some photos but the real deal is to see it with Your own eyes. The... More

My fellow foreign teachers and I decided to climb Guanyin mountain as a day trip on Saturday Oct 17th from Dongguan with bus L4. Some of us walked up and some took the bus up. It was great walking up. It is steep and about 7km. Once you get up there the atmosphere is really nice. There are restaurants up... More

A beautiful place, I went on Saturday and I was not crowded the weather was a bit stormy but it gave a really unique view of the landscape, it's a hike to top even from the trolley, and don't forget to do the zip line on your way down.

It was a lot of fun to get to the top by small bus, walk after that a while , get some honey from the old lady right on the top of the mountain. Having reached the top, you can enjoy amazing view over the whole area! This place is sure worth visiting! If you go from Dongguan centre take... More

Nice for a quick visit since the location not a very touristy place. Avoid holidays. Not spectscular, but need to climb quite bit on steep stair casein the last 100m. Can be tough for the elderly, handicapped or kids.
