This bridge is indeed, a unique one. Stone bridges on both sides with multiple pavilions, these are in turned adorned with beautiful calligraphy carved on wooden panel and intricate wood work. The middle of the bridge which is not connecting is line up by 18 wooden boats with boards on top. connecting both ends, so this section is like a... More

I have seen quite a few bridges in the past but this bridge is really unique. Whether you view it from afar or walk on it, you can't help but wonder at its design and intent, with floating barges separating the two banks of the river. I heard that during the night, it is lighted and the view is just... More

One of the Top Four Ancient Bridges in China. The more elegant name of this bridge is Xiang Zi Qiao. 湘子橋. It is located just outside the Guangji Tower. Other than the pavilions, the centre portion of the bridge is connected by wooden boats so that they can be moved away to allow vessels to pass. We did not cross... More

Interesting bridge made up with different sections where the architecture of each section are all different. The center of the bridge is made up of a few boats that are lined up. These boats will move aside in the late afternoon to allow other boats to cross. At about 5:30 pm, it was interesting to see a whole stream of... More

as said, a unique bridge like no other chinese style bridge. this is a historic bridge from the southern song dynasty that bequeath the high tehcnology at that time. such intricate and connecting pavillions that form the bridge with boats in between. you dont have to spend RMB60 to cross the bridge, the view is as excellent from the promenade.

It's a must see if you are visiting Chaozhou. It really is beautiful. We visited it during the day but probably it must be also amazing during the night if there are any lights. It's also not so crowded which is a big plus.

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
