    I liked it a lot, being an outdoor attraction you must ensure that the weather is good. We did the river cruise and we loved, unique view is beautiful. Not liked as friends who were on the boat super crowded. Bring food xchè boat drinks are ok but the food not. the views are awesome.

    We could not climb to the top by the chairlift because there farm 16 h. Attention. Very disappointed because we had taken the bus 24 then 20 min until the lift market. A scooter offered us 150 rmb for the short trip to 1 km 500. We refused. Better to take a taxi directly to the centre! At the checkout, they don't speak English and don't try to communicate. We ended up finding the path on the left behind the homes. The path is narrow, muddy. It will take squeeze you between the tropical plants. Our children who saw a centipede in the parking lot did not appreciate ascension. Small view in the mist of the departure of the sleds. 60rmb per person: it's expensive! No display rate. Bizzare. Here you will be guided by two Chinese to stop you from going too fast. Too bad. I'm not going to go very fast but I'm disappointed: it totally isn't. Front cheek on his phone. A tourists trap.

    Great trip up the chairlift to see some of the surrounds of Guilin.  A decent long ride and some interesting views. We had three kids under 1.4m so they couldn't ride alone, so we paid our taxi driver to accompany our oldest. The kids weren't very well secured but most of the time you aren't very far off the ground. Our weather was foggy so we couldn't see really far but it meant the ride wasn't too hot.

    坐索道挺刺激的,用另一種方法感受桂林的美景,起霧時猶如置身於仙景一般😄值得一試。當然在索道上是寒冷的。

    去堯山看到了桂林的精髓,就是一座座大小一的小山,搭纜車上去,一路看到綿延不斷的小山,好美。下山時玩了滑梯,一定要玩,是一個完美的結束
