    38,176 Reviews
    288.1km from downtown
    "They say the Yellow Mountains (Huangshan) are some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, and I must agree. I took a train from Beijing and stayed a night in the town at the base of the mountains to prepare for the hike up the next morning. Although there are lifts to carry you up part way, I chose to hike on foot, which took about 3 hours. I stayed at a hotel for a night at the top to view the sunrise, and the unforgettable, breathtaking views were worth it in spite of the sore muscles and lack of sleep."

"You would not want to visit mountains after visiting the Five Sacred Mountains, and you would not want to visit the Five Sacred Mountains after visiting Huangshan."

    Lingshan Giant Buddha

    26,646 Reviews
    185km from downtown
    "I went on a Tuesday morning before 8.30am in term time so it was quiet, serene and not crowded. it got busier as the day progressed and tour buses arrived but nothing like holiday time in China. the all access ticket was 210 you can scan the code to get a ticket if the office isn’t open when you arrive. it includes a time for the show at the palace. I also paid the 40rmb for the hop in and off bus because the area is large and it was a boiling hot day so it was convenient and made the day more relaxing and pleasant. you can walk if you don’t fancy the bus the paths are beautiful and there are many shaded areas. there are many things to see; a Buddhism cultural museum; fantastic views and numerous places for food and drink. if you see the morning shows you’ll be pleased past various restaurants which are really expensive (500rmb a set meal). I’d skip those and head for some snacks in the downstairs lobby you’ll walk through before you can exit (includes drinks fruit ice cream etc) and wait till you get to the exit of the entire place as you’ll be forced through commercial city (like IKEA) until you can exit - but this place has many small food stalls that are cheap and cheerful with seating. I had special fried rice and passion fruit juice for 23rmb. you can easily spend a morning or an afternoon here. oh and one final thing - all the toilets were spotless and well stocked !"
    Highlights: The Lingshan Giant Buddha is located on Xiaoling Mountain on the edge of Taihu Lake in Wuxi. Its scale is grand and spectacular. Many great masters came to hold grand ceremonies during its opening, and thus Chinese locals believe that it will bring good fortune if one prays to the great Buddha. There is also an interesting thing to try out when visiting the Buddha. When you look up at the Buddha and walk left or right, regardless of where you go, the eyes of the Buddha are always watching you, as if "the Dharma is boundless and sees everything."

    Shaoxing Ancient City

    449 Reviews
    54.9km from downtown
    Vlad the Traveler
    "Shaoxing Ancienty City roughly corresponds to the Yuecheng district of the modern Shaoxing. The old and relatively preserved or restored parts of the city are actually scattered across the district, most notably the areas around bazi qiao and fushan although these are not the only old parts that survived. The fushan area is especially interesting because apart from old houses, cobbled streets and canals it also hosts the shaoxing museum as well as the "restored" palace of the kingdom of yue. I personnaly love the ba zi qiao(or bridge number eight area) because it manages to keep the slow pace and somewhat derelict, but quaint feeling of a place left behind in time even though it features a very famous bridge that attracts tourists."
    Highlights: The ancient city of Shaoxing is an ancient city with a lot of cultural heritage. The white walls and grey tiles of the ancient city houses are well-preserved and do not have a strong commercial atmosphere. Cangqiao Street Historic District, Bazi Bridge Historic District and Lu Xun's Hometown Historic District are all good choices. The ancient city is surrounded by water, with criss-crossing rivers and known as the "ancient city floating on the water." Therefore, the boat with black awning is one of the most popular modes of transportation.
