Mount Tai

A symbol of the Chinese Spirit and the royal object of worship, Mount Tai has many spectacular scenic and historic sites.

Reviewed By Sara S - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Mount Tai is often regarded as the foremost of the Five Great Mountains of China. Although there are stone steps, climbing from the bottom (Red Gate) to the top (Jade Emperor Peak) may be too challenging a task for most tourists. The best strategy is to ride the bus from Red Gate to Mid Heaven Gate, and then climb from there to South Heaven Gate, take a break, and then continue to the peak. What a magnificent experience!

Taishan East Road

Reviewed By JayDeeBee1950 - Sydney, Australia

Taishan is the first among China's 5 important Mountains our guide said. Best done with a local. You can climb thousands of steps but we took bus halfway then cable car then walked 777 steps. Good clear day but cold fantastic view & local guide made all the difference. Food at top of cable car & usual hawkers but all very friendly.

Taishan Geological Park

Reviewed By Jydeoo - Lagos, Nigeria

This Geological park sets out in the foothills of the Taishan Mountain range wooing and wowing visitors from far and near alike.
This is a very tall mountain range with several peaks that are sometimes above the clouds.
The park at the foot of the mountain is entertaining enough, but that is just thin slice of the thrills that the attraction offers.
Well, visiting is not cheap, but as they say, "you get what you pay for"; this destination is worth the expense.
RMB125 for entrance, RMB30 for the bus ride (in each direction) that takes you about halfway up, RMB100 for each ride in the cable car.
If you are spending only half a day, I recommend taking all the rides, as there is still a good portion of climbing to do above the cable cars.
If you have full day, you can choose to skip the bus or the cable car and enjoy the climb and the scenery. If a little lazy, take the cable car or bus up, and climb downwards.
It is a good outdoor activity and definitely not recommended for a rainy day. It's a little cold at the top, so take a jacket or scarf along.
Drinking water was sold to us at RMB8 for a 50cl bottle. I guess there is a cost to carrying the water all the way up. If you want to save, take your own water along.
There are lots of shops selling souvenirs, little bells, fancy stones/pendants + engraving your name or anything you want them to write, cane walking sticks, etc.
Later, I learnt a bit more about the very historic temples at the peaks: famous for their association with coronations and feasts of ancient Emperors.

It was a good half-day outing for me, and I have two standing invitations to return and watch the sunrise from above the clouds.

TAIAN Fantawild Adventure

Reviewed By Kurtenbach - Qingdao, China

I was very sceptical about a Chinese owned amusment park. But after a day of fun I have to admit they did a good job there. Lots of lots of things to discover and see. Many carussels to ride, so not to much waiting in front of the attractions. In some carussels you just can ride again as there might not be enough other guests to fill up the cars (that goes only when there is no national holiday or school holiday - but you should know better than going there on a national holiday ;) ).
Compared to Disney it was just so much more fun to walk into the shows straight and not to wait for 90 minutes...
One thing I disliked about that park is the general message of the shows. There is not one show that I have seen that is only nice. There is always some violence in the shows and even the fish 4D theater for the youngest was sometimes pretty scary. Might be a cultural thing though.

I might be one of the few people who visited the temple after climbing Taishan. I was relieved to see that the swarm of people I came accros on the mountain wasn't present at this temple. I appreciated its almost peaceful atmosphere and its history.

Taohuayu Canyon of Taian

Reviewed By Ian2109 - Germany/UK

Also known as Peach Blossom Valley this is a fine landscape of rocks, streams and trees - and of course the peach blossom.
Forget about the buses - put on your hiking boots and walk the 7 or so kilometers to the cable car and then ride up. You can take a taxi from Tai'an and take the K16 bus back. You can also just wander about in the valley or have a picnic. During the week it is very quiet though it can get busy at the weekend.

You'll only be able to visit this temple if you are are climbing Mt Tai. So check out all the reviews there first! If you are climbing Mt Tai, make sure you stop here. It's right at the top of the long staircase , so it makes a nice rest stop before continuing up the mountain.
