    Yufeng Mountain (鱼峰山 - yú fēng shān) means "Fish Peak Mountain" as the karst hill has teh appearance of a fish leaping from the water. The hike to the top is strenuous, so many people take the cable car, at least for the ascent.

    From the top there is a great view (weather permitting) of central and northern Liuzhou with the River Liu 柳江 - liǔ jiāng) winding around the city.

    At the foot of the mountain is a pleasant enough park which also affords access to the neighbouring Ma'an Mountain ()

    Ma'an Shan (马鞍山) means Horse Saddle Hill. It is so named as the shape of the hill near the city center resembles a saddle (if you squint properly!). It's a steep climb to the top, but there also is a cable car.

    It's worth it on a fine day for the view over the city to the north and the karst landscape to the south.

    Qishi City Park is a place that you can see first hand the history of yesterday and the history that is being made today. When you first get there you will think they are just polished rock and they very much are. They come in different sizes and shapes, small and large. Some are free standing and some are on stands. Out side of each building you will see piles of rock and wonder what you are doing there but when you explore deeper into the different buildings you will see that these rock become polished. The true rocks that I wanted to buy and did and are worth very much money because they are polished by hand from the beginning after they chisel away what they do not want and then the real work begins and that is to polish each rock by hand until it has the most beautiful colors in it. Reds, Whites, Browns, Blues, it there is a color it can be found in these stones and when they are finished being polished words are not good enough for them.
    These polished stones are very much a very well demanded item in the country and sell for much money not only there but anywhere in the world. Now me I had to go with a smaller stone but it was a hand polished stone and worth giving up the size for a stone that was done with power equipment. It is very smooth and displays an array of colors that is natural to the rocks in the area. And no they just do not go out and pick up a rock and use it they study the stone and vision what it will look like when it is complete.
    These stones are sold for a premium price on the east coast of China and for good reason. It is the only place that a person can get one. And they sell for enough money to last them for some time to live on. And to watch them work on these stones and the time that it takes to make one is very much breath taking because it does not seem like in three hours that they have done a thing but if you come back a week later you can see that they have done a few inches of the stone but not to it's finished stage because that comes much later as they complete the stone. If you wish to see them do a large stone well be ready to go back in 6 months and they will still be working on the same stone. I think you would need a two or three year visa to see one from start to finish and that is for a large one with so many wonderful colors all over the stone some of the lines of color will go all the way through the stone.
    Yes if you are in Liuzhou this is worth seeing and buying a stone of any kind and they also make wonderful gifts as well. You can buy small stones as well so do not be scared to look at the prices of them and don't miss out on the history of many years that has been passed from many generations of family.

    I live nearby and, far from being a small art museum as has been suggested, this is a large three storey museum with displays of Paleontology (including locally found fossils), Liuzhou Historical Culture, Liuzhou Minority Customs, Ancient Bronze Arts and Ancient Fan Painting & Calligraphy etc. There is a small art gallery on the first floor which holds temporary exhibits, but that is just a tiny part of the place.

    Exhibits are only labelled in Chinese

    The museum is open every day except Mondays, from 9 am to 5 pm (last entry 4 pm).

    I only went here because a friend from out of town visited and wanted to go. Despite my misgivings, I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. It shows the history of Liuzhou's industrialisation since prehistoric times right up to today, with realistic looking tableux of teh old and real exampls of the new. Cars, trains, electronic equipment. Household goods. It has everything.

    A few signs in English, but most of the detailed descriptions have not been translated.

    Play time is when people in China relax for the day etc. City top is a nice shopping complex. Can be a little expensive but very good. It does have a good range of restaurants. At good prices.

    East Gate Tower is the relic of ancient fort in Liuzhou. It's a typical ancient Chinese architecture. No use any more at present except for visiting. It's near the Liujiang River. It's a must see in Liuzhou.

    Easy to get to and a world class display setting off this city. A must-see attraction and suitable for ALL ages! You do not need to use a riverboat to enjoy it and I think it's best seen from the opposite bank. I've travelled a fair bit and am amazed this simple concept has not been used in 'western' cities much. The world has a lot to learn from Liuzhou!

    The best park in Liuzhou in my opinion, keeps on getting better (mainly for kids) as they've just opened 'Queshan Amusements' inside the park and it's really well stocked - full of great rides for all ages - will definitely visit again, the only negative is the fact that Queshan Park is situated not far from the Industrial Northern area of the city, if not for that, I would have given it a full 5 stars!

    Jiangbin Park (江宾公园) or Riverside Park is a long narrow park beside the River Liu in the centre of Liuzhou. A pleasant park with a few surprises. Odd statues, nice gardens, places to watch the locals doing their laundry or swimming in the river, musicians playing etc. Just behind the park about halfway along is a rare church - in fact most of the building is a rather seedy hotel, but part is used as church. Behind the church is an interesting fish and seafood market..

    Liuzhou is well known for its Fantastic Stone Festival, held irregulary, but usually every second year. Collectors come from all over China and beyond to see unusual-shaped stones which are often used with bonsai to create wonderful artificial landscapes. The range is amazing.

    But there is no neeed to attend the festival as this museum of stones is open year round. There is a very popular Chinese banquet set out in one hall here, in which all the food is stone. These are not carved or otherwise created but this is how they were found.

    Some are like abstract sculptures, but again are natural. They may have been polished, but that's all.

    If you like viewing stones or sculpture, then this is an interesting place to visit.
    Unfortunately for me, the museum was closed due to a bomb scare when I was there, but I still enjoyed the rest of the park and its great minimalist sculptures of Chinese literary figures.
