Kaiping Diaolou is a special type of Chinese native architecture. It is a multi-storey tower-like building integrating defense, residence and Chinese and Western architectural art. It is characterized by the combination of Chinese and Western dwellings, with ancient Greek, Roman and Islamic styles. . It is located in Kaiping City, under the jurisdiction of Jiangmen City, Guangdong Province, 80 kilometers from Jiangmen City and 90 kilometers from Gudou Hot Spring. Kaiping's towers are scattered all over the area, and we decided to go to the self-supporting village of World Cultural Heritage in the first stop. The most famous is the filming of the "Let the Bullets Fly", and we will go in for a while. You can now see a very typical watchtower. As the name suggests, "carving" refers to buildings used for military defense, and "floor" refers to houses with more than two floors. The tower is obviously a kind of solid building that combines the military defense function of the "carving" with the architectural form of the "building". The Diaolou Building was mainly built in the early 20th century. Due to floods, floods and other disasters, the Kaiping overseas Chinese funded the construction of 15 towers. The slabs are made of reinforced concrete or concrete-clad bricks. The floors are equipped with iron gates, iron windows and muzzles. Inside, they store guns, gongs, searchlights and grain. Once the bandits are invaded, the villagers will hide in easy-to-reach. In the tower, compete with it and keep one party safe. There are more than 3,000 seats in , and there are still 1,833 in existence. Today's Diaolou Village has not only attracted tourists from all over the world, but also became a popular location for filming movies.

Choosing to stay at the Phoenix Hotel in Kaiping Country Garden, Kaiping, Guangdong, in addition to the beautiful impression left by the Country Garden Hotel, there is also a reason that it is close to all major attractions. Especially like the atmosphere of the hotel. The magnificent Sistine arcade and the sleek landscape gardens make the hotel one of the main characters in the painting. Walk in the back garden, a green, long-distance, European-style hotel building is majestic yet elegant. Opposite the hotel is the villa group of Country Garden, the elegant European-style villas are scattered along the valley, looking far away, especially beautiful! Small sculptures can be seen everywhere in the back garden, reminiscent of the classic works of European sculpture capital. The lobby of the hotel is based on the golden system, silently interpreting the understated luxury! The hotel will decorate the lobby with different festivals and hold corresponding events. Check in is the garden view bed room. When you open the room door, you will see the welcome words on the floor. The words are surrounded by a circle of flower petals, which is both romantic and warm. Warm feelings! The room is spacious and bright, and the decor is simple and romantic. The pool is one of the hotel's standard landscapes, with a full view of the pool from the balcony of the room. The hotel has a conversion socket for passengers. The socket is divided into two holes and three holes to facilitate the simultaneous supply of multiple electronic devices. There are three USB sockets on the conversion socket. It is worthy of praise that the data cable is also carefully prepared, which is divided into three to meet the needs of mobile phone users of different standards.
