    Changting/Tingzhou was of importance during the civil war. Chairman Mao lived there and made decisions about political strategies and different actions.
    There a little museum for thoses who are interested in the history of the Chinese Communist Party. In the same buildings you find the Hakka museum where you can have some outlines of this culture.

    Wandering along the street is the most interesting activity. Take your time and open your eyes...you'll see:
    Noodles, bras and underwears drying in the sun.
    Drive-in groceries.
    Peasants bringing their medicinal herbs on their bikes.

    The food was good but nothing special, but we were not able to order Hakka specialties. The ambience is relaxed. At the end of our dinner, ALL THE STAFF wanted to take pictures of us and with us. Probably 100 photographs were taken in 20 minutes.

    When you arrive at Tingzhou from Ganzhou, there are no taxis waiting at the bus station. Motorcyclists propose you the fare and they seem not be worried by your luggage.
    In town, you find one or two taxis, but people use more frequently cyclo-taxis.

    I saw this barber shop on the old street behind SanYuanGe. There are also several carving shops on the street.

    The city gate was built in Tang dynasty. On the square only this gate was left and other Tang buildings surrounding removed. Now it becomes an entertainment centre for elders. Get through the gate there's an old street ahead

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Favorite thing: It's a protected architecture on the old street. though not protected well in my opinion. There should be 2 stone lion statues standing on the both sides of the gate now disappearred. At current 9 families live in there and have to turn in rent to the government.
