What people are saying:

This ancient tower captured me with amazement especially during the evening where the evening lights that dramatically transforms the atmosphere of the wall. It's located downtown of Zhaoqing City. A lot of food stalls can be accessed across the wall where you can taste authentic Chinese cuisine.
