Unbelievable Dragon-Dance in Foshan
When Chinese New Year approaches, you can see many Dragon Dance activities all around the country and abroad. In Foshan, a city in Guangdong province, I had an amazing Dragon Dance 🐉🐲 experience.
📍Foshan, Close to Ancestral Tempel, Guangdong Province
The show was for free and the actors where so great! I don't know if it's a regular activity, so keep your eyes open, whenever you're in Foshan around CNY. Happy New Year! 📍🎈🐰🎉🧧

Staycation in Foshan Nanhai
Looking for somewhere to get away from the city? Foshan Nanhai may just be the place for you and there you can find many parks and places to relax.
Check out Crowne Plaza Foshan Nanhai
Not only is it positioned in a quiet area with relaxing lake views, this hotel has been open for only a few years and is fairly new!
Compared to other Crowne Plazas I’ve stayed at, this one goes above and beyond to make your stay relaxing! Breakfast is delicious and if you’re an IHG member you may even get some extra benefits
But moreover is the breathtaking views, sunrise and place to relax and rejuvenate away from the city!
The hotel has everything you need including:
- Swimming Pool
Ask for a high floor room away from the elevator, you will have a very peaceful sleep!
📍Crowne Plaza Foshan Nanhai. Take a taxi from Guangzhou South Railway
💪Pool, fitness centre and situated at the edge of a lake - which is great for jogging!
🍔The breakfast buffet was great and part of the room rate when I visited. There are some small restaurants nearby, but not many
💰Cost per room including breakfast cost me 450rmb/night

Foshan Wenhanhu Lake Park
Wenhanhu Lake Park is a great place to base yourself as it’s a fairly quiet area with lots of grassy areas, a lake, a sand pit all which are spectacular day and night.
At night, I like to jog round the park - the air is cooler and the lake is lit up. You will find people like to come here to play and night time is certainly best to relax and exercise!
- Looking for public toilets? You will find these at the far end of the park (opposite Crowne Plaza Hotel)
- You can stay at Crowne Plaza to and make it a staycation - the hotel is new and fairly cheap for the quality!
📍You can get to the lake park by taking a taxi or Didi from Guangzhou South Station, a Didi cost 18rmb at time of writing and was about 15mins drive.
💰The park is free to enter

Mt Xiqiao - Big Buddha
Today I will tell you more about Mt Xiqiao, or how many people call it Big Buddha in Foshan.
Foshan is city next to Guangzhou and they are connected by subway, so it's very convenient. From Kuiqi Lu metro station you can take Didi to drive you directly to the entrance of Mt Xiqiao. When you buy ticket and pass security control you have option to walk or to take electric car.
First what you gonna see are few smaller Temples and you are slowly climbing upstairs. Temple after Temple and you will arrive at big Square in front of Big Buddha but more stairs are in front of you. 😁
After you climb all those stairs you will be directly in front of it, you can enjoy in amazing view and you can check small mussem which is under Big Buddha.
At the end its very nice place to visit. Count that you need minimum half of the day because it's located outside of the city area.

Dragon Dance in Foshan
I had the opportunity to see a Dragon Dance show on on an old square in front of a temple, some weeks before the spring festival and Chinese New Year.
🚩 Foshan is close to Guangzhou, you can reach it by plane, bus, train or even by Guangzhou metro!
It was amazing and the best dragon show I saw so far. 🐉

I was quarantined in Foshan city after coming to Guangzhou for 14 days. The members in the quarantined area were very kind and friendly to support me even I only know English. Especially, they made a surprising thing for me with a birthday cake. In the postcard, it was written manually. Thank you so much. I highly appreciate your care and thank Chinese people.
