Penglaige, Penglai

(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Head up to Penglaige, the peak of a peninsula offering extensive views along the coastline, and a number historic temples. Said to be the place where Emperor Qin Shi Huang sought the elixir of life in the second century BCE, the scenic viewpoint and the temples that dot it certainly possess both a natural and man-made charm, with the buildings neatly complementing the red rock of the cliffs below. The museums and temples within the cultural park at the end of the peninsula deserve plenty of exploration, along with the neatly maintained traditional gardens and the wealth of viewpoints. Use our Penglai itinerary maker to add Penglaige and other attractions to your Penglai vacation plans.

  • From 1 July to 9 October, Penglai city is filled with tourists. During this period the population of 500 thousand doubles and on Saturday and Sunday even tripled. But from October to May, the town emptied, and in this time of particular interest to wander in his sights. It is clear that all this new print, but nevertheless, Taoist history disappear from the walls of the pavilions and Temple complexes, area attractions well removed, planted flowers, gardens and landscape architecture catches the eye.
