This is like one mosaic picture where every small part is in its own proper place and act in a harmony with others elements. I was surprised by the imagination of creators and work that has been done to let us just come and enjoy our staying in fantastic world!
Qinghui Garden, the four famous gardens in Guangdong, was built in the Ming Dynasty and belongs to the Shunde must-have card attraction. "Qinghui" means "who is arrogant, and rewards Sanchunhui". It was originally the private residence of Huang Shijun, the rite of Shangli, and was slowly taken down by the Dragon during the Qing Dynasty.
The layout of the whole garden is compact and compact. The structure of the courtyard space is clear and distinct. The clear water, green trees, pavilions, stone mountains, leaking windows and curved corridors are all blending together. Private gardens can do this very well. It is.
Tickets are 15 yuan. Each of the attractions has a corresponding QR code. You can listen to it after sweeping. There are many green plants in the garden. Many local residents come to cool it. It is a good place to cool off the heat.
Qinghui inch grass heart, the garden is more green after the rain. The former site of Shunde Qinghui Garden was originally built by Huang Shijun, the Ming Dynasty champion Huang Shijun. The existing buildings were mainly built during the Qing Jiaqing period. In the park, the owner reflects the idea of moving the mountains and waters, and enjoys the idea of the winding path of the wind. He was inspired by the famous poem of Xie Lingyun of the Southern Dynasties: "The faint is the climate, the landscape contains the Qinghui", hence the name "Qinghui".
In history, there were ten literary champions in Guangdong, and Shunde accounted for three of them. People are outstanding, there are Feng Laiyi.
