A wonderful climb, leaves you breathless, and surprised as you get to the top, an amazing view of the city and the nearby hills, close to the old palace and by the river, adds to the awe, beautiful sunsets, so, plan to be there just in time for that, you'll be happy you did, I know I was.

We didn't do any climbing, but we were able to walk along well marked paths and enjoy the scenery. Worth two hours outdoors to mingle with locals, and mainly Chinese visitors.

There is a lot to explore at Fubo Hill down by the river and at the top of the hill. The steps to climb are nice and even and very easy to climb up. The views were not that great for us as there was a significant amount of fog. It certainly would have been better on a clearer day.

Average amount of climbing will give you a nice panoramic view of Guilin. Don't forget to take your camera with you.

Fubo Hill has some magnificent carvings in the rocks with the hanging rock cut by a sword. The hill is by the river side and has many other features around it. A must see when in Guiln.

There are many, many steps up to the top of the hill. When you arrive at the top you get a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Glad I did it.

Nothing much to see except for the steep climb uphill. Story of princess is just so-so. Basically a local exercise park with lots of seniors converted into an attraction.

This is a great location to look over Guilin if you have limited time and the "fog" is not too thick. The walk up to the top takes a little effort but it gives a good view looking back at the city of Guilin and towards Elephant Truck Hill. We went on a Sunday and the crowds were minimal so... More

If you have an extra 30-minutes, Fubo is a fun little spot to see. The cave underneath is most impressive with its old carvings and its buddhist temple.

There's little reason to visit Fubo Hill. Almost all there is to see, you can actually see from the outside of the gates. Really. So avoid paying the entrance fee and stroll around the outside to snap pictures through the gates of the Buddah, the Karst, the giant tea cup. It's a spot worth passing by on the way to... More
