Just a wall with a nice bridge opposite
Oct 2019 • Friends
Really just a nice wall with some ancient gate that looks cool. The cool thing is the bridge opposite it. That is beautiful and has much historical story. Don't miss it if you're in the vicinity.

Ancient, historic, touristy area
Sep 2019 • Business
Hundreds of years old houses. Feeling the ancient city wall was extremely exciting. There are many touristy shops and snack eateries. A lot of them have names which also seem strange to my Chinese colleagues.

Beautiful Night Light Show - Bridge of Boat at Chaozhou
Jun 2019 • Friends
With High Speed Rail connecting directly from Hong Kong, visiting Chaozhou is very easy now.

It takes 3 hours and approximately HKD250 train tickets from Hong Kong to Chaochau.

From the train station, one may call taxi to arrive at the Chaozhou Ancient City. From there, one may walk around, enjoy watching the (renovated) ancient city wall and tasting different snacks.

The BRIDGE OF BOAT is beautiful at day time and even more so at night when all the lighting is on.

The night show starts at 8 pm every night with matching lighting program and chosen songs.

I had not seen foreigner travelers on this day and feel it a pity. More tourists should come to appreciate the history and beauty of the bridge.

Catered more for tourist
Mar 2019 • Friends
The whole street filled with tourists. After having visited the ancient KuanYim temple within walking distance, we were enroute towards the ancient fort overlooking Hanjiang River. The place theme with tourist bargain hunting for some peanut snacks, toys, fruits & roast goose to bring home or even just a simple tickle of the taste buds. A kilogram of Mulberrys which much look like black berries are only 5rmb, we had 2 kilograms. Sweet & juicy. Must admit, the "lion headed braised goose" (we had them for 2 whole days of dinner & supper) are 5 stars. really tasty & its gizzards crunchy. We Teochew's will miss these back home. The huge wings, livers, gizzards, webs, skin & neck goes really well with red wine. Our supper ended at nearly 1a.m. both the nights., in our hotel rooms

Great Place to Stay in Chaozhou
Mar 2019 • Couples
The area is very nice for shopping and dining in a pedestrian streets location. Access to some hotels or inns may be a little challenging but very near tourist attraction.

The area is very beautifully lit up at night. Definitely worth visiting this area in Chaozhou.

Old city wall
Jan 2019 • Couples
I was disappointed with this wall. It looks great and is well maintained but when you get up onto it, the grounds aren't well-looked after. It didn't give me the pleasant walk I was hoping for. So nice to look at and photograph, but not for a walk.

Enhance the historic flavour of this ancient city
Oct 2018 • Solo
Chaozhou appears to me an historic ancient little town with many of the attractions well concentrated near the Arch Street. There is the historic Kaiyuan Temple, the magnificent ancient Guangji Bridge and the numerous dilapidated old houses that are well contained in the ancient city wall.

The fortress wall enhances the historic flavor of this small ancient city. I felt lost in time tunnel wandering along the shop-packed Arch streets tasting the wonderful Teochew cuisine delights.

The city is very walkable and I enjoyed the pleasure of my exploration, both of the city and her traditional cuisine delights. The fortress wall is located in segment near to the boulevard and looking across the Guangji Bridge and the beautiful Hanjiang River.

While it gives a sense of protection against attack from the Hanjiang River, I felt the historic ancient fortress wall actually contains and restricts the movement of the citizens of Chaozhou to explore beyond the horizons.

History, however, demonstrated that the fortress wall did not stop the overseas Chaozhou people from venturing abroad to find a better livelihood. These overseas Teochew migrants are an adventurous and resilient lot.

Their endurance and ability to overcome adversity and obstacles and their determination to survive and established themselves to prosper in foreign lands created many inspiring and encouraging struggle stories for the younger generation to emulate and to venture beyond this little town to search for greener pastures.

The historic walls cannot contain their adventurous spirit. Many Teochews from this little town are now great entrepreneurs in many parts of the world. This town is proud to hear of the many successful stories that they brought home.

Many of these overseas businessmen did not forget their home town that once brought them to this world and had returned to Chaozhou and Shantou to contribute to the prosperity of the motherland.

The arches erected at Taiping Street demonstrated the scholarly achievement of the academic Teochew; the fortress wall resembles the lighthouse pointing outward to the horizon beyond and guiding the entrepreneurial Teochew people to venture abroad for a better living.

I like the latter group.

Impressive ancient wall
Apr 2018 • Couples
This wall is near to monumental arches (Paifang street) and alongside the Han river.
Spend a day travelling to all the surrounding sites and savour some local delicacies e.g. fried oyster (蚝烙) , soup dessert "ya mu nian"(鸭母捻) .
Ya mu nian is similar to cheng teng (清汤) in Singapore, liu wei tang (六味汤) and "tau teng" in Thailand.
