The gardens made it a very relaxing location. Peaceful, nice architecture, plenty of restrooms. And then there was the pagoda itself. Have sturdy legs and no fear of heights. Being a narrow structure meant steep steps that required side-stepping. The view was nice and it's...More

This place is ok to see but nothing special. We stopped by and left after like 10min. Entrance fee is not high, so it is ok to fit in if you have some time to kill.

The over 1000 yrs tower is a nice visiting place. Entrance fee only RMB3. If have to go up on tower another RMB15. For me, just go to the park to enjoy the quiet moment is fine enough.
