1. Our group of 11 people took the high-speed railway from Guangzhou to Chaozhou on May 27, and rented two cars to drive in Chaozhou. At 2:00 p.m. on the 28th, we visited Guangji Gate Tower (hereinafter referred to as Guangji Tower), a famous scenic spot in Chaozhou. I think Guangji Tower is very worthy of careful scrutiny. 2. The Guangji Tower in Chaozhou (with five floors) is as famous as the Hailou in Yuexiushan Town, Guangzhou (with five floors), and it is well-known all over the world. It was built in the Ming Dynasty. 3. When you visit Guangji Tower, you will surely see the ancient city wall of Chaozhou, because there are several towers connected with the ancient city wall, the largest of which is Guangji Tower. The ancient city wall is also worth watching slowly. Its thickness is tens of meters. It was also built in the Ming Dynasty. Its length is 2.6 kilometers. 4. Guangji Bridge (commonly known as Xiangzi Bridge and Floating Bridge) is one of the four ancient bridges in China and the first open-close bridge in the world. It lies in the middle section of the Han River, connecting the ancient city with the eastern coast. Since ancient times, it has been the transportation hub of Fujian and Guangdong provinces, and the land route between the two provinces must pass through. Tourists who step on Guangji Bridge and enjoy the beautiful scenery in front of them must be very beautiful. 5. Tourists coming to Chaozhou must have a look at the night lighting show of Guangji Building (Xiangzi Bridge). It shows Guangji Tower (Xiangzi Bridge) lighting at 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. each night, with 15 minutes as a show. We visited Guangji Tower, Ancient City Wall and Xiangzi Bridge on the afternoon of the 28th. At 9:00 p.m., we came again to watch Guangji Tower (Xiangzi Bridge) lighting show. The lighting show is that Guangji Tower is brightly lit, accompanied by music singing, Xiangzi Bridge and the eastern mountain lighting, constantly changing the gorgeous color patterns. I saw a large number of people watching the light show by the riverside barrier, densely packed. Guangji Tower (Xiangzi Bridge) is very popular with tourists (locals), and it is worth seeing.
It's worth seeing. It's unexpected that Chaozhou is a city in general. But Guangji Tower, Kaiyuan Temple, Paifang Street and Han Wengong Temple are worth visiting. Chaozhou Sanbao is worth buying, beef balls and Sufu cakes are worth tasting, and Chaozhou is worth visiting.
A magnificent city building with Lingnan characteristics. Up to the city building, you can not only look down at the Han River, see Guangji Bridge, one of the four famous ancient bridges in China, but also overlook the prosperous scenery of the ancient streets of Paifang Street.
Between the ancient city and Guangji Bridge, you can overlook the scenery of Guangji Bridge and Hanjiang River. There are few people in the morning, so you can park on the inside. However, if you want to go around another gate, the gate building does not seem to be open. You can go to the ancient city or cross the bridge by taking a picture.
There are four gate towers in the ancient city of Chaozhou (Xiashui Gate Tower, Guangji Gate Tower, Zhumu Gate Tower and Shangshui Gate Tower), among which Guangji Gate Tower is the most magnificent. Guangji Gate Tower, formerly known as "Guangji Tower", also known as "Han Jiang Tower", is commonly known as "East Gate Tower" which is the most magnificent one in the seven gates of the original Chaozhou ancient city, and is also the main symbol of the famous Chaozhou city. There is an exhibition hall on the 2nd floor of the ancient city building. The main exhibition in the museum is about the historical changes of Guangji Bridge and the city building. It needs to buy additional tickets.
We walked in from Paifang Street because it was a crowd of Chinese New Year celebrities.
Guangji Gate Tower, commonly known as the East Gate Tower, is located in the eastern part of Xiangqiao District, Chaozhou City, Guangdong Province, China. It is facing Guangji Bridge and is the first of the seven gates in the ancient city of Chaozhou. The first and second floors are Guangji Bridge History Exhibition Hall.
