    Back Street Photo-shooting

    Shooting photos in back street is so much of fun, especially in narrow and crammed back street of Guangdong Province.

    Inside these back streets, I noticed a lot of hair saloons, and I also noticed they are different type of hair saloons, mostly low cost budget hair saloons and mid cost hair saloons, the high cost type is not inside these back street, is next to McDonalds an d KFC.

    Mostly youngsters like to gather around these hair saloons, they like to enjoy new and trendy hair styles and coloring. The older ones are seen inside those low cost hair saloons, these are for elsers and budget, over here you need not deliberately carry a fake/real Louis Vuitton or Prada, nobody cares.

    Over here in most of Guangdong Province, they rely a lot on these small motorcycles as their taxi. Just hop on any of these taxi and they will send you to anywhere in town, cost is around 3yuan per ride.

    The Huge Great XXX of God

    by l_joo Updated Apr 19, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When visiting Shaoguan, you can book a day-trip to Danxia, 51km of distance.

    Without a doubt this place is a Holy site because nobody has such a huge XXX, only Him.

    This is a holy place suitable for devout religious tourists to watch and witness the Holy Great XXX of the Creator.

    Visitors should touch it with both hands and pay absolute respect, it cures especially diseases of skin such as STD and granting longevity to devout believers.

  • Danxia Mountain, A Unesco World Heritage Site

    Thanks to China’s rapidly expanding high-speed rail network, many new travel destinations are becoming accessible to foreign tourists, particularly those interested in a quick 2 or 3 day get-away from metropolis life, i.e. Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong. Danxia mountain National Park could be just the thing you’re looking for. It features spectacular sandstone rock formations, and many kilometers of hiking trails, from casual strolls to strenuous ascents. You can find steamy, lush tropical bamboo forests, cliff-side monasteries, and amazing vistas. Two big attractions here are the “man stone” and the “female stone”, and as natural formations they are renowned for inspiring natural romance. Although there is a museum of sex history just outside the main gate, there is very little gimmickry or kitsch here. Nobody will try to sell you “packaged romantic memories" or staged “minority performances”, and you won't even see any changing color lights splashing on the many stone edifices. You are totally free to make of Danxia Mountain what you wish, and take away the memories you create

    Nanhua Temple

    This is a main attraction in Shaoguan, billed as the 4 great temples of Guangdong province. Unfortunately, I never got to visit the temple.
