Better go at night!

You better go at night. It's more beautiful with many coloured lights. It's also very near the Ancient City Wall and night market.

The bridge is made up of a series of pavilions on both ends for resting and sight seeing purposes. These pavilions stop short about half way through and becomes a series of boats. These boats are detached at certain times of the day to allow big boats to pass through. These boats are secured tightly so have no fear of... More

Having not read up on the bridge and seeing it for the first time in person was interesting, especially since it had a floating portion in the middle. Guangji bridge was definitely one of the cleanest and best maintained place in the whole of Chaozhou/Shantou. My walk along the bridge was cut short by an hour long storm, it started... More

Pretty much as the title says, the bridge is not like anything else I have seen here, mainly due to the connection in the middle with boats as well as the numerous pavilions that make up the bridge's abutments. The view from the riverfront (free) is honestly better than walking on the bridge itself, which carries a charge of 50... More

This 1000 year old bridge is of unique construction -- the middle part of which is resting over a series of pontoons,openable for marine traffic! Unfortunately it was closed for protection and we could only admire it at the adjacent park. Afterwards we hired a trickshaw there to see the Jiadi Alley (甲第巷), along both sides of which lie government... More

Liked: the unique characteristic of the bridge where the middle section, consisting of 18 boats, can be removed, to enable ships to pass through. Disliked: the presence of beggars.

A great place to visit. You don't need long and the steep price (compared to other attractions in China) may put some people off but it's worth it and there are no crowds. Beautiful place to spend some time.

The bridge is a nice view, but I didn't pay to enter. Is just in front the gate for the old city which is also a must go. You can also rent bikes to ride around the lake enjoying the view. You can take nice pictures, and enter in the old city to try some chinese good snacks and visit... More

the bridge itself is of very special design, beautifully made and good to go in the afternoon with cool river breeze. Quiet and nice.
