Holding a machine gun has always being my childhood dream... In fact I am always the police when we play police and thief during younger days... till day I am still into this kinda action stuff... I mean movie here...
Here at the resort one of the activities which I enjoy most is the war game... which I get to experience the real terrain.... and most impotantly be in army uniform ...huh!! Looking cool right...??
Well if ur gonna play this , be really careful coz most of us end up with blue black.... I had one at the side of my waist and another one on my thigh.... the bullet is a round red ball filled with red liquid supposed to look like blood.
Shooting someone at close range is not permitted coz its gonna really hurt and might cause real bleeding.

We are divided into 2 groups and supposed to 'kill" the other party. Rule of the game. ur down once someone managed to shoot u...
Equipment: Gun with aritificial bullets , uniform and helmet are provided..
Tienhe Sports Center, a hub for many sports activities. It has a football court, tennis court, bowling lanes, swimming pool, running track, baseball field, gym, basketball and believe it or not, a golf driving range!
As it has a very large indoor stadium, many concerts and major ceremonies are being held there.
You can also find sports shops and restaurants within the premises.
Located centrally at the Tienhe commercial district, it is near many popular malls like Teemall, the mega bookstore, and Citic Plaza.
Though you wouldn't immediately think of doing it in South China, there is now a full size ice skating rink in Tian He, Guangzhou's thriving business district. Located inside the vast and brand new Grandview Mall, the ice rink is situated on one of the upper levels and has become a very popular destination for recreation, especially with teenagers. You can rent skates and they also have instructors on hand that can help out beginners. There is even an actual Zamboni driver that comes out and re-ices the rink periodically...
In October on a Saturday the main swimming pool suprisingly does not open until 6pm.
I arrived at noon only to find it closed. Shame for such a big city to have this major pool closed on such a hot day
People in Guangzhou consider dancing as exercise to stay healthy. That day while I was walking on the Shamian Island, I saw some middle-aged ladies dancing around happily to a few kinds of music - pop, funky, classic... Oh well, I was impressed!
There is tons of basketball courts and it is usually pretty busy. The Basketball courts are open untill 8pm, you can pay 5RMB to play for how ever long you want. You cannot get through the gate unless you pay. It is not hard to find people to play with once you go inside.
Equipment: Whatever you want to play with.
You have to have the field booked to play on it. However i go there and join people all the time to play with, they do not mind and often invite you to play with them. You do not have to pay to enter and the entrance is not the same as the basketball courts, you will see the gate from the side of the fields, just next to the b-ball entrance.
Equipment: Soccer boots and shorts.
This is Grandview Mall's ice skating rink on a Sunday in the summer of 2005. I guess the rink was still relatively new then, and that was why it was sooo crowded! But it was fun, I tell ya! I was the only one wearing a short skirt to skate though! I guess everyone came prepared to dump their bottoms onto the wet ice, but I just wanted to look pretty! Haha...
In the YueXiu park, there is a football stadium were the local heroes of GuangZhou football team are playing.
We paid 20 RMB each to see a game in the second highest division in China. The level of the teams were horrible, but it was something that you just have to see if you are a football fan. The stadium is quite big, i woukd guess that it can take 15 000 in the stands. One stand is seating and looks quite ok.
Equipment: Watch out for litle kids pissing every were. You don't wanna sit in their urine.
As expected Table Tennis or as we call it, ping pong is surely very popular here and I could see some people play it in the yards.
Yoga and such are obviously more common here then in Europe and you can often see groups of people training in public places.
Football is of course as popular in China as in the rest of the world. Unfortunately I did not see any match, but I did pass by this nice Guangzhou stadium.
Lingnan Impression Park is a place showing the ancient architecture of a few hundred years ago in Guangzhou(Canton).
People in Guangzhou seem to enjoy having morning exercises. You can see many people exercising by the pearl river in the morning. Perhaps you can go and join them!
