A quick visit would be all I needed. Long walks to see the same were no longer very much wanted. If one has a special interest in pagodas it is certainly worth visiting but just more of the same, in my opinion.

This is a very busy attraction but it was ok for us the day we visited. Be prepared to have your bags scanned and passports checked everywhere you go.

The gardens are just lovely and the Pagoda is an amazing structure. I loved listening to the bells tinkling in the breeze. I don’t recommend visiting in July or August. It’s was incredibly hot and full of thousands of people.

The Pagoda was good to see but dont stay an extra night just to see it! The history is fantastic and the light show is cool but unlike the Terracotta army its not a must see.

A small entry fee but so much to see including other areas such as the Small Wild Goose Pagoda . Tranquil gardens . Allow at least 2 hrs. More if you have time.

One of the premier sites in China. You don't have to climb the Pagoda to enjoy this beautiful Buddhist temple.

The offering around the Big Pagoda is a must see. The offering is incredible. This is a big show in summer. I have not enough words to explain all of it

We were on a guided tour so unable to say how much the tickets are. Sometimes one can get combination tickets which are more economical
