Xiqiao Mountain National Forest Park, Foshan

#1 of 13 in Parks in Foshan
Spend a day exploring the natural and historical treasures of volcanic Xiqiao Mountain National Forest Park. The ancient dormant volcano sculpted the surroundings in the most amazing ways, creating hollows, grotesque cliffs, waterfalls, and pristine lakes. The centre of the park displays a huge bronze statue of the Buddha, reaching 61 m (200 ft), and also offers vistas spreading across the city. See ornate pagodas and ancient villages, then visit the national park's highlight: the tall statue of Goddess Kwan Yin, sitting in a lotus flower. Also known as the mother of mercy, her monument attracts devotees who come to seek blessings. In spring, peach trees start to blossom, filling the national park with an alluring scent.
