Climb all the way up to get a nice view of Hanjiang, Guangji Bridge and Guangji Gate!

This attraction is very near Guangji Bridge and is worth the ¥10 you have to pay to get in. Make sure you take time to read the words written on the boards to get an understanding... read more

The woodwork in this temple was excellent at one time, but has since badly faded and today is quite neglected. All of the other components of the temple have long since vanished except the eaves and roof, and the halls have been converted into a small museum of Chaozhou notables.

The Han Wen Temple isn't the most famous or beautiful attraction in the world, but it's not bad. Nice place to go and relax for awhile if you happen to be in Chaozhou. Get there before 8am and you don't have to pay an entry fee.

This attraction is very near Guangji Bridge and is worth the ¥10 you have to pay to get in. Make sure you take time to read the words written on the boards to get an understanding on why Han Yu is an important person to Chaozhou. However, you have to be able to read Chinese in order to do so... More
