Guangdong

Guangdong in December was much comfortable than I could imagined. Get up early in the morning to drink morning tea, while in the evening go to have night snacks.. so I felt Guangdong is a good place for leisurely outdoor living.

This trip to Guangdong, I had been four destinations: Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Foshan, and Zhongshan. In addition to the comfortable weather in the winter, I like the day of eating and drinking, Cantonese cuisine is one of my favorite.

After the 2011 Universiade, Shenzhen Longgang District looks like a pearl.

Compared with Futian District and Luohu District, Longgang District is much quiet, but without losing the modern feeling.

In Zhongshan, I tasted some authentic Zhongshan snacks, such as shrimp noodle and Beef Brisket with trotter noodle.

At about mid-day, we spent one hour having lunch in a restaurant near the airport bus station. After that, we strolled along the old streets and alleys, taking photos as well.

In this season, there are Bauhinia flowers blooming in Guangdong. We entered an alley where there is graffiti on the wall.

We saw many Zhongshan historic buildings.
