The view from the temple atop the Solitary Beauty karst is spectacularly breathtaking - but be warned: The climb is not for the faint-of-heart! It's not a cheap view, either (entrance fee to the "city" is 75 RMB). All the exhibits and plaques are in Mandarin Chinese, so history buffs won't get much out of it. However, it was nice and empty when I went, as all the students were on winter vacation; a nice change of pace from nearby Zhongshan Zhonglu (Guilin's main street).

Yep,it's a branch campus of Guangxi Normal University.Planted with lot of osmanthus trees,Wangcheng City is shady and cool.
Most of the students in that branch campus are major in Art. U can hear graceful melody flowing out of the classroom.Actually,most area of the campus can be visited free,only the Solitary Beauty Peak and the rooms guarded by securities dressed in ancient costume will charge.

I am very interested in Chinese history and culture, so Wangcheng City or Jingjiang Prince City was the must-see spot for me in Guilin. It is located in the downtown of Guilin City and very close to Zhengyang pedestrian street, which is a shopping street with delicious snacks. In Wangcheng City, I felt so impressive about the Chinese ancient cuture and history. If you are interested in Chinese history, this is a good spot for you to know more about China.

You can climb to the top of the hill inside the walls. It's a very sweaty activity in summer, and the stairs very steep - not for the faint-hearted, but a good view at the top.
