Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park
The Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park is a park known for its two pagodas on Shanhu Lake, one of Guilin's four moat-like lakes that surround the center of the city of Guilin. Based on historical documents of pagodas from the Tang Dynasty, the park was recreated in 2002 with the graceful figures of Sun Pagoda and Moon Pagoda. The theme of the park is the harmony of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, and visitors can take a leisurely stroll through the park, where statues and reliefs of each religion are placed.
The city of Guilin stretches between the flow of the Li River and limestone peaks in southern China. The city has spun out its history as a city since the Qin Dynasty, when its government offices were established. The scenic landscape created by rocky mountains of various sizes, characteristic of karst landscapes, is the biggest factor that attracts people to this area. Cruises that take visitors to these fantastic landscapes, which have been depicted in landscape paintings since ancient times, are becoming increasingly popular.
