    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!

    There are 16 sculpted dragon column marble pillars on both side of the memorial arch, exquisite stone art. Big park to hang around, jogging or cycling.

    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.

    Spent 3 weeks in the local area within a 50 kilometre radius and ventured out one day on a chinese tourist bus tour to Sanshui, which took us to parts of the Sanshui Forest Park. As it was all in chinese and no english, a lot of the history of the park was missed, but still a beautiful place. the park occupies more than 3366 acres and is only 2 klm from the city centre. One of the big draw cards is the large lying Buddha reputed to be the largest lying buddha inn the world. It is manmade and carved into the hillside beside a small lake, with a beautiful temple and pagoda overlooking the entire scene. Make sure that you go under the temple and see the beautiful carvings on the wall (in marble?) depicting warrior scenes. Just beautiful and simple.

    There is also a very sad crocodiile park within the forest, coming from Australia, they were very sad looking individuals, the only thing at that point of interest were the live chicken areas near the crocodiles, kept for fresh food!!!

    There are many entrances to the park, and our bus drove us around to several of the entrances.

    For me the most beautiful time was one of the temples, still have not been able to find the name of it, as everything obviously in Chinese. a large temple, with large steps leading up the hill, some beautiful ceramic tiled scenes depicting rural china. Just gorgeous. At the temple at the top (name unknown??) there were large carved (wooden??) warriers lining the inside of the temple. They were larger than life size and may even have been emporers, again not able to find out . Just amazing, I could have spent hours looking at them all. Alongside the temple the external buildings housed the teaching rooms,

    All in all, hugely worth visiting, I believe that we only saw an extremely small fraction of the park available, as I belive that it also has so much more to offer

    The exposition areas have not been maintained for some time, so this mostly a place for shopping for nursery plants and accessories and not sightseeing. But for that it is amazing! Huge selection of plants, bonsai, containers, stands, andthing you need for indoor gardening. There are many large warehouse-size buildings to tour for this purpose. Then are the many smaller shops specializing in large stones, landscape trees, teapots, pottery, wood sculpture and more.

    Jihua is a public park with plenty of trees that is good for a morning run while you're visiting Foshan. You can also join Tai-chi practitioners while you visit as there are plenty of them (esp older ones) in the mornings.

    It takes a ferry to get here. You can cycle around, have some fresh fish on the local rafts, or even hold a wedding ceremony in a little church.

    Absolute waste of time. It's just a normal park. The only interesting thing here is lots of ceramic toilets hanging from a wall. I added my photo of this.
