It’s about time I round up my China Series yeah?
Yeah, I think so too 🙂
It’s my little way of reliving the moments…
In this post I will be sharing with you, my random moments in China.
The Chen Chen Temple
I got a souvenir of my name written in Chinese here!
oh, my bad , *focus*
The Chen temple is definitely worth the visit, it’s got great works of intricate carvings of Wood and Ivory (I was fascinated by the level of detail) It’s a “family temple” and was originally built by a group of Chen family members to support their children to study for the government tests, over hundred years ago. It’s also got a mini souvenir shop which was where I got my name written(totally love it- it hangs in my bedroom I do hope it means “Feyikoya” for real – haha)
A little history, Shamian island was an important port for Guangzhou’s foreign trade and it means “sandy surface” in Chinese. I’m glad I got to see the island as it’s beautiful. Unfortunately or fortunately it was raining but that surely did not stop me (I think the rain made me play more- you know, dancing in the rain. haha)
The major train stations for intercity travel are HUGE!, you would think it’s an international airport
Bicycles & Tricycles
Here, bicycles were more than just bicycles- I mean literally anything and everything was transported with a bicycle- it was fascinating. They were literally reconstructed/customised to carry anything- Everything!
These are not my pictures but believe it, it’s real!
