  • It’s rather like any lake you’ve visited. Nothing spectacular here really, but it is quite large so you can spend quite a bit of time exploring if that’s your thing.  more »
  • Was there this morning. The entire park is very large; we only covered a small part, having accessed it via Changshoulu station. Saw groups of ppl doing morning exercise and even singing!  more »
  • Lychee Park-Lake is one of the most beautiful in Guangzhou. From the West and South Park-limited Lake Lychee channels, and in one place southern Lakeshore approaching channel hardly close, Lake and Canal separates the pedestrian Gallery: because the Qanat was not less beautiful than on the shore of the Lake, we decided to a little stroll on it. Through the Canal crossed by graceful humped bridges in Chinese style. Immediately after the bridge on the park side of the channel begins a miniature-literally 10 meters wide and 100 meters long-shopping kvartalchik Lishjeng ("lisheng Ripe lychee). On the waterfront near one of the shops sat cat-exclusively for China's rare case! And soon we were set against the eastern border of the Park-the street Longdzin (longjin, "Dragon Crossing") and once again go into the Park. Eastern and central part of the Park Lake at least Lychee beautiful than the West and South. The lake itself is just as helpful Internet, 2/3. On its shores are numerous structures in pure Chinese spirit: arches, bridges, trees, pavilonchiki bizarre, Gallery of amazing beauty. Then suddenly in the middle of the Lake you will see a graceful statue of the goddess from the local pantheon. On the parapet of the waterfront one of the zalivchikov we met cells with some funny birds! Why are they here? No other considerations besides aesthetic in the head does not come:-) And this, it seems to me the very essence of Chinese landscape architecture: see the beauty in everything, to find the most unexpected opportunities for disclosure of the most different facets of beauty! Unusual water flowers, don't know what, but beautiful. Algae, from which comes the kvakanie. I got the impression that the fullest even algae.

  • A good size park that is very well landscaped and maintained. A great place to walk and enjoy the tranquillity of the park with a chance to see some of the old Lingnan style buildings and also the modern high-rises not too far away. There are tea houses, food and beverages store at some section of the park. Great place to get away from the crowd.
  • Excellent place to meet

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
