3.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
An exquisite three-story tower overlooking Dongting Lake, Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou) poignantly raises the tips of its roofs towards the heavens, resembling a giant bird in flight or an ancient warrior’s helmet. One of the three great towers south of the Yangtse River, this architectural treasure dates back to the fourth cenutury CE, with the original building constructed in the third century BCE. Made entirely out of wood with no metal nails or beams, this fine 15 m (49 ft) high structure stands as a masterpiece of classical Chinese military joinery. Enjoy views of the lake, observing busy docks and ships, or take a stroll in the scenic garden surrounding the pavilion. A pedestrian street nearby offers good restaurants.

  • 花了四個小時,只走了三分之一,因為內容太豐富,歷史太精彩,再再拖著我前進的步伐!景區規劃完善,帶我們走過歷史的長河,而無處不在的禮品店,其實也是很好的學習場所,朝拜之後,到洞庭湖走走,更是人生一樂。 
  • 估计门票钱大部分用来修葺华丽丽的洗手间了 以及 入口处的几个朝代的岳阳楼模型 岳阳楼 楼梯地毯有股奇怪的味道 整个楼内 通风不好 当地人虽热情 当从事服务业的大部分人却态度差 例如公交司机,景区检票人员,饭店年轻服务员 应该不会再来了 
  • Heavy rain fall, we boarded city bus. Get off at the Lake of BA Ling West Road to the nearest square. The gate is located there. Walking while watching the Dongting Lake Yueyang Lou is back. You can climb inside. While enjoying the scenery just reminded me of 1 section of Chinese poetry.
