“Worst attraction in Guangzhou”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

It is difficult to believe that any of the positive reviews are from normal people. It costs 60 RMB to enter a place that is simply a crowded, outdoor shopping mall selling nothing you can't buy in other places in Guangzhou. There is a stage show with some young people jumping around like chickens, the standard South China attraction, and definitely not worth the price of admission to the park.

Avoid this place under any circumstances because there are better places to go that are free or cost less. Baomo is only 40 RMB.

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We found this park a bit lacking, could it be because we arrived in the afternoon, and saw BIG groups of school kids leaving the park, so perhaps the entertainment section was over? We did wander around and bought some food to sample, but overall, it was just not that entertaining. So unless you are looking for something to do to kill time, don't bother going.

“amazing village”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

The village was quiet far from yuexiu district but on the way to that area was a fascinating view of Guangzhou.You can see Canton tower,Pearl river,Cultural center,University city and many more. It is a different sight for us from a busy urban in Guangzhou to this village that has the old structures and still have those old stuffs in the village(also bigger than in ngong pin village). Since we went there in January, it was freezing cold and it was raining my advice is to go there early morning before noon to avoid the crowd. Anyway,children would not be bored because there are also small park and catching fish park. The view was amazing you would never thought that you were already in 2012. If you didn't bring any food and wanted to buy souvenirs.Don't worry there are plenty of foods and souvenirs that are sold inside,they are not expensive. The entrance only cost 45rmb per pax.
This village is located inside the University City,there is a metro going there and just ride a bus(you will not be confused by the bus because there is only one bus that runs inside it). If you want to have a break in your weekend, you could come here and smell the fresh air. Enjoy!!

“Good cultural experience”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

We spent a day out from Guangzhou visiting the University Campus and marvelled at the construction of all the major teaching institutions. We drove by this garden by chance and found that the developer has done a good job to recreate life in this part of China 60 to 100 years ago. They have significant investment in the buidlings and brought back nostalgia to people of Guangtung heritage as what life was like in those days. The garden visit also included shows produced by teenagers and youngsters. It was overall a pleasant experience and we even went to the Huangpoa Military Academy nearby , completing a day visit to all these places.

“A poor copy of a real South China village with no public transport”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

Guangdong has many great old villages with history, quality architecture, art, food and culture. Lingnan Impression is a copy of one of those villages, minus all of the good stuff. It is a poor, shoddy copy filled with expensive "arts and crafts" and crappy food. For 45 RMB, there really was very little to do. The acrobatics and puppet shows were decent but everything else was just a wll decorated shopping street. Also, there is NO public transportation, zero. This must be the only place in Guangzhou without a bus or smetro station. To see what this place wants to be but can't, visit the Zhumiao in Foshan. It has real history, culture, great shows, a metro stop and lots of buses.
