Ah, Quanzhou! You legendary city, historical endpoint of the Silk Road, populous metropolis that I know and love so well! I recall with such fondness my year spent within your winding, narrow alleys...
But I digress.
Are you in Quanzhou for some reason? Would you like to kill a few hours in a relatively pleasant manner? Are you on a budget? Do you have relatively low expectations? Well sir, Kaiyuan Monastery is for you! It has everything you'd ever want in a smallish urban monastery in China. They got monks, they got incense, they got statues, and they got a lot of other stuff you'd expect to find in a place called Kaiyuan Monastery in a town like Quanzhou, China.
So come on down to Kaiyuan Monastery! Because, really, there's very little else of even mild interest in Quanzhou. But if you're there... you know, check it out.
