Was a good hike to the top with some great views of the city. On a hot day bring lots of water and good shoes.

Why do you have to pay so much money just to climb to a high view point? It is a rip off for tourist. Better to spend your time and money navigating the narrow streets and understand the life and culture on Gulangyu.

This mountain is located in GuLangYu island. It is not that big in scale. You should only come here if the weather is good and there isn't a crowd. I personally think it is expensive at $60 CNY when you Shanghai's the bund is free.

This is the highest point in GuLangYu island. The ticket cost you about RMB63 but I think is a bit overpriced. You have to climb up the narrow staircase so be there as early as you can, maybe before9am? Else consider to drop it.
