This modern pagoda with elevator does have nice views over the lake, furthemore I found it not really intresting. If the weather is good, it's worth it, otherwise I would give it a miss.

It is just another one of China's pagodas, though of course, with its unique history and folklore. Nice enough place, though, I should say, with ample space to handle large crowds. A good view around at the peak of the Tower. But perhaps after visiting...More

This is a very beautiful place close to the lake. You can visit the pagoda and see the wonderful scenario from the top.

Lights up brightly at night. It was at the back of the luxury hotel/military post we stayed in. Impressive exhibition set up with the foundations and explanations are disjointed but available in English. Worth spending time examining the carvings of the White snake legend. The...More
