B. Off season (November to March)

The opening time about the off season is between 7:00 o’clock to 17:00 o’clock everyday.

Tip 2 : Tickets

The Penglai Pavilion scenic region best tours of China is very strange, because of there is no attraction ticket for students, old person and any special guest, the full ticket is very expensive, i still could not understand this. I guess extremely less people would like to visit twice, cause of the unreasonable ticket price.

Anyway the full ticket of the Penglai pavilion is charging for 140 RMB for each person.

Tip 3: Traffic

A. Bus

The nearest station of Penglai Pavilion is the West Garden of the Penglai Pavilion. And There is one bus could pass by that bus station which is the number 8 bus from the Penglai city center.

B. Taxi

If you don’t know this city well, i suggest you to take a taxi. And the taxi of Penglai city is not expensive, you could land the Penglai pavilion with the flag fall, it is very cheap, isn’t it?

Tip 4: Best Time For Traveling

The China travel guide book says that the four seasons are perfect for traveling the Penglai Pavilion. But i have noticed the time of in season which is around July to September. Because a lot people plan to visit this place for avoiding the summer-heat, and this period is the summer holiday of Chinese students. Therefore this period will be very crowded, i suggest you visit this place by avoiding this peak-hour tour.

Tip 5: Address of the Tengwang Pavilion

No.7, Yingbing Road, Penglai City, Shandong Province.
