  • 地鐵站出來就是了,很方便喔,雖然還不需要門票,就可以看外貌了,但是RMB10門票買進去,覺得真的很值得 裡面的一樑一柱都非常精美,也保持得很乾淨,真的值得去  more »
  • This is an ancestral temple built with funds from the Chen family. It has beautiful crafting and very interesting exhibits relating to Guangdong folk art. The exhibits are varied and beautiful. A must...  more »
  • Lost entrance fees, some are cheap. To see so much architecture is not the only traditional old buildings to say what? In the hour or so we looked all over. Not if free, cheap and good?

  • Different from most temple like buildings in China, very special.
  • Worth to visit
  • 还行,虽然大部分应该是被破坏以后又修复的,有很多工艺品展示很不错
  • 很有岭南文化特点的建筑群,保留得非常完整,交通便利,无论地铁还是公交都方便。距离上下九不算远,逛完可以去上下九吃东西。
  • 陈家祠其实并不大,但是里面有很漂亮的工艺品,有纪念品商店,分几个区,特定时间有志愿解说者,持有学生证有优惠,里面的雕刻工艺品与刺绣让人印象深刻,票价便宜,值得一去!
