    i enjoyed my trip here - there is a lot of officiousness around the entrance, not so around the exit (hint) - its a series of courtyards and at least in covid times very peaceful. Some very old statues and the main hall is impressive. It just did not feel like a functioning temple. The "old town" outside is worth a wander for coffee-shops etc, old here being about 20y and every house now being / converted into a shop - but still nice to stroll. The refreshment areas in the temple were not so. I put 2-3hr including the stroll outside

    The mountain (also known as Mount Qingyuan) summit is 498 metres above sea level. At the foot of the mountain is a statue, carved out of stone, of Laozi. He is a famous ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. There are also theee other stone statuesof Buddhas, and an Islamic sacred tomb.

    this place exceeded my expectations. Its located in a green compound, free to get in and everything is captioned in accurate and informative English. The politics is uptodate "common prosperity". Most items are old carved stones - which i like but you may not. I never saw the old boat someone else commented. Upstairs and the adjacent Islamic building are maintained in local style, refreshments / gift shop not available

    1200 meters long bridge constructed from early northern song dynasty (1053) known as Wan'an Bridge is one of four oldest bridges in China.
    It is very interesting to see and imagine how huge stone pillars were hauling (using wave tides) and raised to build a bridge.
    If you plan to walk across the bridge, expect to see beautiful panoramic views of the bay...high heels are not recommended..
    Good place for wedding and family portraits

    Twin stone and stone-carved pagodas. The westerly pagoda is known by the name Renshou, and 200 metres in the easterly direction is the Zhenguo pagoda. The Renshou pagoda was originally built of wood sometime between 860 and 873, although some others say it was built or completed in 916. After being twice destroyed by fire, it was rebuilt of brick, and later of stone.

    This is a very interesting place with beautiful buildings and statues. People back in the day surely knew where to build temples - this place has a fascinating energy! I will come back for sure one day. If you want to buy souvenirs I would recommend to check the small shops along the street in front of the temple. I found a small shop where a really nice older man sells second hand items. I bought a LaoZi statue for a very fair price there which I am still so happy about. I wish I could give his shop 5 stars as well!

    Completed in 1009, the Mosque was in use for most of the last 1000 years. It was built for the Muslim sea traders who visited coastal China. Although mostly intact, there is little left of the Mosque outside of the walls, which are in remarkably good condition. Well worth your time to visit if you are in the area.

    This Minnan architectural style complex is the Temple of the Goddess Thean Hou. It was originally constructed in about 1196, during the Song Dynasty. It was rebuilt and renamed in 1407.

    Visited West Lake Park as part of an organised tour. It was a lovely place to spend a couple of hours, took a nice cruise on the lake and walk through the gardens. There are plenty of shops, Restaurants, and monuments. Worth a visit!

    If you travel in south China and in other S.E. Asian Chinese communities, you are going to encounter Guangdi temples in many places. Here is one of the most active ones, full of people and smoke praying for their good luck in business.Check out how they play with sticks in the boxes and how they toss those 2 pieces on the gorund to get the omen from the deity. Watch the wise old men telling them their fortunes and advising them about their luck. This is the real thing and nowhere else you will experience it better.

    Good collections, and very informative. Well worth visiting. The main building was completed in 2012. I especially liked the displays showing how the local citizens lived hundreds of years ago, and went about their daily activities.

    I've been to many Confucius temples around China and Taiwan, including the most famous one in QuFu, ShangDong, where Confucius was born and lived. Nonetheless, this one in QuanZhou is still quite impressive in its own way: spacious, nice ponds, and a museum to memorize the famous scholars (many became government officials) from this region ... A worthwhile visit !

    Tumen street is like the Beijing Lu in many parts of China. It is a shopping district. Also located near an old mosque and Guang Di Temple. If you are looking for local fashion and local food, this is the place to be. Prices are affordable too.
