Along with our group of teenagers, we came to see the big Buddha and enjoyed the stop! It has an interesting history and we appreciated having a guide. We came just before it closed, so we were a bit rushed. I believe it closes at 5pm, so get there earlier than 3, so you can see the whole place .... More

I'm not into going to Buddhist temples because I thought if you've seen 1 you've seen them all, especially in China but I had to go because it was part of my tour. I actually found this place interesting. It's not the temples that you're used to. It had different artitecture. Quite modern. Good for taking pictures. The reason I... More

A statue you'll see on miles distance. You'll get here by an hour bus from railwaystation in Wuxi. Costs you about 2 yuan for bus and about 100 yuan for entrance. You're gonna get a fantastic day walking on to this scenic area.

Really cool place to visit, even if you don't speak Chinese. It's newly built but doesn't skimp on splendor. Make sure to see the show/video.

Our tour group spent a half day here. It was amazing. So educational and beautiful Landscaping incredible. Peaceful. Zen. There's a lot of walking involved, however, there is a bus for those with mobility issues. One of the most amazing water shows we have ever seen. Go if you can.

This place is vast and has many scenic spots and structures to visit. To get to the giant Buddha you need to climb a long flight of steps so do take your time. Do note that the Vatican palace in the north-east of the area is closed for renovation due to a fire, so the entrance fees have been greatly... More
