Ganzhou Pontoon

Reviewed By KH_n_JH - Guangzhou, China

This is one of two pontoon Bridges in Ganzhou. The two rivers Gong and Zhang come together in Ganzhou to form the Gan River. One pontoon bridge spans each of these two tributaries near the point where they meet. You can walk across the pontoon bridge, which is just long wooden planks fastened together, sitting atop about 60 floating wooden boats. Really interesting!

Tongtian Cave Scenic Resort

Reviewed By hktraveller328 - Hong Kong, China

It took me 40 minutes from my hotel in a newly developed district to the Tongtian Cave.
After I passed the main entrance, I saw a pond with lotus leaves with dozens of koi carps. The leaves in the autumn turned yellow. Two tourists were feeding the fish. A great autumn view for photo-taking.
On the right of a man-made waterfall, there stood a statue of Master Wang Yangming. On the left is a footpath going up the hill. There are steps with running water next to the footpath so you can hear the sound of water and feel relaxed.
The caves show visitors with sculptures of hundreds years ago and those made in recent years too. I am fond of the former ones for the better Chinese calligraphy.
I have been impressed by the shape of the roots of some giant trees. Natural and Fantastic.
I saw the dancing room for Mr. Jiang Jingguo and heard stories about him and his mistress who died in Guangxi. Interesting.
The sleeping Buddha statue was newly made. I would prefer the original one even though it might look old and broken.
Very nice walk uphill in the autumn.

Old Pontoon

Reviewed By hktraveller328 - Hong Kong, China

It is close to the wall for defence which was built in the Sung dynasty. Walking down the steps, I saw several boats selling sundried fish and other kinds of sundried stuff including shrimps, seaweeds and turtles. The boats are also homes of fishermen.
It was cloudy and quite windy that day. I saw Gan Jiang (River Gan) and felt its powerful running water.
The pontoon is upon boats and I saw a local fishing hiding himself in one of the boats and a few others fishing on the pontoon on a small portable folding chair. Locals use this pontoon to go to the other side of the city. I saw grandpa taking young kids home after school, housewives carrying vegetables and fruits, men walking with his bicycle from one side of the pontoon to the other side. This is something real for locals, not for tourists.
I suggest visitors spend adequate time there to walk from one end to the other end for a very special experience. You will be amazed by the intelligent design of the pontoon of ancient Chinese.
It is worth visiting the second time.

Old City Wall of Song Dynasty

Reviewed By mow_joe88 - Atlanta

All cities were surrounded by walls during the good old (or bad old, depending) days in China. Nearly all are gone now. Ganzhou has an long section intact. I suspect it has been heavily restored. Some bricks are new, while others probably date back a long way, perhaps to the Song dynasty. Many have characters stamped on the bricks, but alas they apparently do not indicate date. The river on one side, the long winding wall on the other - in a park setting. Mainly locals, and not crowded. Quite nice.

BaJing WenHua Jie

Reviewed By ChanRoberts - Harbin, China

This is actually about Bajing Pavillion and the surrounding park.
I walked here from Ganzhou Pavillion and found it quite by accident. The pavillion costs 30 RMB to get in, but you also get to walk on part of the old Ganzhou city wall. The views of the river from both the pavillion and the wall are nice and great for photos. It's well worth seeing while visiting Ganzhou.

小孩8岁时带他来玩了一下,他个子较高,所以除了过山车比较危险,而且排队时间太长没有玩,其他的好多项目都玩了一遍。反正小孩还不到挑剔的年龄,觉得还可以。

Zao'er Lane

Reviewed By Chu D

Point of attraction to tourists who love China ancient civilization.
Very old school style groups of building. I love it. Can do better.
Many houses were not renovated and opened for tourist.
Clean and fix the ruin was enough. Please keep them raw, old and pure(less colourful spot light).
Much much potential and need much more publication to the world.
古中國氣息濃厚,經濟潛力無限,還有很多樓房丟空沒有開放。希望可以用古方法修缮保養,保存它們的原始感及純樸感(彩燈太浮誇)。民宿食店都可以做。可以效法南京老門東,以中英粤法日俄八國聯軍等語言,重點向外推介,把中國老傳統發揚光大。

因为阳岭居然写在了五龙客家风情园我只好把点评与到这了,其实阳岭和五龙没半毛钱关系。
我们是早上8点去的,门票价是40元驴妈妈价是30元,因为阳岭去过几次了,所以轻车熟路,购票上山,因为景区的景点入口都在公路两旁,所以很方便,到离大门两公里的地方就是兰溪沟谷雨林,入口有停车场、小卖部、公厕挺方便的,小卖部价格也不像其它 景区那么黑,不错,走游步道稍微往里走一点,小溪里玩会儿,水很冰凉,我们走的挺快又加在路上游玩,所以40分钟才到作家村,4月有很多花开了,然后在这喝了口阳岭茶,老板人很热情,都不好意思,沿游步道直上,再走20分钟就到了兰溪瀑布,兰溪瀑布的空气负离子浓度值是进入了吉尼斯记录的中国之最,每立方厘米达到了19万多的值,在这呆会儿感觉特别的神清气爽,怪不得别人都说阳岭水土养人,长寿秘诀是不是就是在于这空气,再沿游步道走十分钟就到在龙吐水瀑布了,听说似卧龙吐土而得名,仔细看确实有些神似,再走十分钟就能从游步道出到公路路口了,往前走点就有家兰溪农家饭庄,我们几个人在那吃的午饭,在那聊天欣赏美丽的竹海,点了一个土鸡汤,四菜一汤才200,一点都不贵,真是土鸡 啊,然后去的云隐寺,然后阳岭之巅,一路游 玩,爬起来一点也不累,下次还去,又能避暑,散心好去处啊。注意防蚊虫,原始森林嘛蚊虫肯定多,上山最好穿长裤。吃住 都可以在山上的农家,老板很热情,而且经济实惠,一点都不坑。
