On Saturday it started- the awesome InternChina trip to Guangzhou. Meeting at 8.30 am and taking the new Zhuhai-Guangzhou High speed train. That was the plan so far.
But how boring would it be if everything would work as it should. No tickets anymore, no chance to go to Guangzhou by train before lunchtime. But instead of getting nervous we just decided to have a little breakfast and take the bus. Buying tickets for that is just a lot more relaxing and easy. Just go to a bus, with some people standing in front of it (there was nothing like ‘Guangzhou’ written on it), go into the bus, wait half of the way and give a little money to a guy that is walking around then to collect it. Easy.
About two hours later we arrived in Guangdong’s capital. Sunshine, good mood, great start to a great weekend.
After checking in into our hotel, right in front of the river we enjoyed the traditional Guangzhou food like wu liu jia dan (fried egg and onions in sweet sour sauce).
We crossed the river with one of the ferries and went to one of the biggest fish markets in Guangdong. After visiting the Cheng Clan Academy we all went to Beijing Lu to do some shopping, to have some awesome Thai food and just to enjoy all the lights and the city life.
Like most of the great days in China that one ended with some beers at the Street BBQ.
Sunday: Skydrop on the Guangzhou tower! And that was definitely the best seconds of the weekend!
Eating Guangzhou noodles, seeing the famous five goats, the Guangzhou museum, Yue Xiu Shan, the oldest stadium in Guangzhou, built in 1950, going to IKEA- there’s a lot of great opportunities to spend your time in Guangzhou.
And our way back home we finally could take the new Guangzhou-Zhuhai train.
