Gaozan Feng Jian Canal Town : Shunde Guangdong

Just when I think I’ve seen almost everything that the Hong Kong area has to offer, something new comes up. Two hours from Hong Kong on a ferry to mainland China’s Guangdong province is an area near Foshan called Shunde. It’s a generally laid back place, but recently the Guangdong government recognized the touristic potential of its narrow canals and has promoted it as a local Venice, of sorts. Not sure it’s anything like Europe, but it does remind me of Suzhou, in a way.

 

There’s almost nothing in English about this little attraction, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when it comes to Guangdong province this is a lovely surprise.

 

Let’s take a walk…
