We went there for a candle festival in August. It was nice but crowded. We had to park very far away and walk. There are lots of steps so if you have mobility issues it will be a problem for you.

Being just a 10 min bus ride and cheap, this is well worth a visit! No need to pay to enter the area. Lots of great spots for photos. Easy walk around for all abilities. Don’t hesitate to go here!!

Easy parking and then a short walk. When you take the path along the road you have to climb some steps, but in return you get a much better view of the statue. We climbed the statue and the view is worth it. Nothing special,...More

You need to take the bus from the train station. You will recognise after 30 minutes that you are at the top of the mountain and can see her head. She is of course bigger than life. Get off the bus when most everyone else...More
