Lonely Planet review
Elegantly embellishing the scenery of Shān Lake (杉湖; Shān Hú), the Sun and Moon Twin Pagodas, beautifully illuminated at night, are the highlight of a stroll around Guìlín’s two central lakes. The octagonal, seven-storey Moon Pagoda (月塔; Yuè Tǎ) is connected by an underwater tunnel to the 41m-high Sun Pagoda (日塔; Rì Tǎ), the world’s tallest copper pagoda and one of the few pagodas anywhere in the world with a lift.
