    This is nicely developed concept. Area has lot of good restaurants and galleries. I have never seem more western faces in Foshan than in this area.

    Great place to have lunch or dinner on one of the nice terraces. Great place for drinks too.

    National forest park and national geological park with lots of hiking options, gardens (peach, bamboo etc.) and the Buddha as main attraction. Ask before you go on one of the buses which direction, they take different turns sometimes. Great for taking pictures and there's some amazing views as well. We spend roughly 3 hours there but you can easily take a day to visit this attraction!

    Came here for about 1-2 hours and very much enjoyed the architecture and amazing carvings and sculptures. Not too complicated to get in with health code and as always for foreigners, bring at least a digital copy of your passport!

    It is a nice place to see an ancient kiln built during the Ming Dynasty (1500s). The entrance fee is 25 RMB. You can pay by AliPay or WeChat Pay. You can see a lot of ceramic/pottery. Also, there are different vendors available as well for you to purchase your own pottery. On the right side of the main entrance where you can go visit the restrooms, there are available shows for you to watch. (Maybe 8 shows). You can watch a clown make balloons and spin the colander. He also interacts with the audience. Afterwards, you can see a pottery master show you how to sculpt firsthand. Last, you can observe a calligraphy master at work where you can purchase his live work at 100 RMB. Very beautiful calligraphy in traditional Chinese characters.

    The lake is surrounded by lights and buildings lit up. It’s a nice relaxing walk around the lake with all the different types of lights on! You can take a boat ride as well! A lovely way to finish the day off!

    Must visit park for a Bruce Lee fan. This park houses an 18.8m high bronze statute for the legend. This paradise of a park extends over 3000 acres and you could spend the day By strolling along woodland path, hiking mountains to admire beautiful scenery of mountains and lakes, or overlooking rural setting, tourists can take in breathtaking scenery of mountains and lakes. Closeby, you must take A walk down memory lane to visit Bruce Lee's ancestral home.

    SWMBO reckoned it was going to be a nice day, and an adventure a little further afield that BaiYun Shan would be nice. She suggested Foshan, that to me sounded good but we’d already visited the Nanfeng Ancient Kiln (TA reviewed), Mount Foshan Liang Park (TA reviewed), Qiandeng Lake (TA reviewed) and I’m sure there’s a couple of more attractions.

    Anyway, SWMBO said the NanHai Movie and TV Town looked good, and sure enough I found this attraction on TA, and it’s the same place. After much head scratching SWMBO said it was going to be a devil to get to, but she’d try her best to get us there. So off we set at 11 o’clock laden down with the usual umbrellas, spare t-shirts, hats, jackets and of course tea, sweets and melon chunks.

    We got a local bus No. 181 all the way westward across GuangZhou city to FangCun Bus Terminal which is part of Fangcun Passenger Transport Station. That was a good hour of travel. Next, we caught the local bus No. 263, which leaves from the ordinary bus stop at the front of the bus terminal. This was after establishing that the No. 44 bus doesn’t now go to the attraction. Again, we were going all the way to the DaLi bus terminal, the journey takes an hour, so we settled down to enjoy the urban sprawl. Luckily when we arrived there was a small local No. 16 bus ready to depart, this is the bus to the Movie and TV Town and then trundles on through the countryside. The journey takes about 30 minutes and dumps you right outside the attraction.

    After the mandatory temperature check and registering us with a mobile phone app for contact tracing we were ushered towards the ticket office.

    Note: A mobile phone with a Chinese SIM card is a necessity these days. I’ve even got my GuangZhou SuiKang (Sui is an abbreviation for GuangZhou, and Kang means healthy) code on mine which saves a lot of hassle. Getting one though isn’t easy and is a story in itself involving visits to the local council’s office and the local police station.

    Poor SWMBO had to fork out ¥90 but when I waved my passport, I was given a free entry for either being sufficiently ancient or foreign. I reckon their ticketing system depends on you having a Chinese ID card, and a passport can’t be processed so they just let you in. Mind you, I don’t think they’re actually inundated with foreigners.

    Once through the impressive arch in the entrance wall we realized that the attraction is huge. After the bus journey’s the first priority was a toilet for a comfort break. The first discovery was that there are dozens of toilets around the site, all spotlessly clean. That was a blessed relief!

    For the next three hours or so, until the doors closed at 6 o’clock, we just wandered around the site. Most of the buildings are locked as I suspect there’s nothing inside, but there are a few with props and sets from various TV productions. You can even try on various costumes and jewellery, get made-up, and then get your photo taken.

    There’s a small lake with boat rides for the brave. Amazingly some cormorants had taken up residence on a moored boat.

    There are various ‘performances’ throughout the day, unfortunately we didn’t get to see any. The six performances are listed in the attraction’s brochure available at the main entrance.

    Be aware there are steps, and lots of them, everywhere. However, there is a bus service around the site bookable at the main entrance. Most signs have a good English translation.

    There are snack and tourist tat stalls dotted around the site. There’s a restaurant which looked rather nice, but we arrived too late for lunch, and the attraction closes at 6 o’clock, so dinner service.

    Even after three hours there were parts of the site we hadn’t visited, so I reckon another visit is called for. Now that we’re familiar with the buses getting there and back will be a less fraught.

    Arriving back at DaLi we were informed that the last coach to GuangZhou had departed but we could try our luck with the local bus service, so it was the No. 263 back to FangCun. There’s also a bus to GuangZhou South Railway Station which would connect us the metro system. At FangCun we caught a bus back to GuangZhou and got off near ShaMian Island (TA Reviewed) and then another bus back home.

    We were greeted by a ravenous cat, two turtles and six fish. We sated ourselves with a pizza delivered by Champion pizza. A good end to a tiring but good day’s adventure.

    Showacases Traditional Chinese Ethnic and Handicrafts, especially the Ceramic ware. You can also enjoy good Chinese Cuisine. Tragedy is more and more Traditional shops are closing down on regularl basis, giving way to mass produced cheaper versions.

    When we arrived in the morning, the crowd was very manageable. The boys and I, I have two boys under the age of 6, were able to go on ride after ride with virtually no wait. Naturally, as the day carried on the crowd grew exponentially, and by mid afternoon it was a circus.

    Overall, this was a great little place for the kids to visit. We were just at HK Disney last week, and they probably had more fun here because there were more rides for them and less restrictions. The short lines in the beginning of the day helped too. The zoo was great too because they got to feed the camels, hippos, deer and even pigs. I can't say I'm too fond of the way a lot of the guests treated the animal, but I also know there's a lot of ignorance in their knowledge about wild life.

    This is a good little place to spend the day if you have small kids. But speaking mandarin is almost a necessity because it's such a local attraction. It's very China with the crowds, the smoking and the lack of certain western ethics; however, it's nothing that's out of the norm.
