“Relaxing place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

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.

“Climb all the way up to get a nice view of Hanjiang, Guangji Bridge and Guangji Gate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

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 as there is no English translation.
