Zhaoqing (肇庆) is located in Guangdong province, to the west of the Pearl River Delta, rich in both history and green mountains, but a bit off the tourist track.
We will depart by shuttle from Shekou in Shenzhen, on Friday June 16 in the late afternoon. In Zhaoqing we’ll stay two nights in a sweet and stylish hotel overlooking one of the city’s most famous sights, the Seven Stars Crag park (七星岩). With its classic landscape of rocky mountains and peaceful lakes, you’ll see why Zhaoqing is called a “little Guilin.” (Hotel: Lian’an Seaview Hotel)
On Saturday June 17, we’ll visit Dinghu Mountain (鼎湖山), one of the four most important mountains in Guangdong province. This biodiverse park is full of greenery and tropical flowers, a majestic waterfall, and a quiet lake.
Zhaoqing also is full of history, including an intact city wall dating back to the Song dynasty.
On Sunday, we will head back on our shuttle for an afternoon arrival in Shenzhen.
Enjoy a weekend away from the city for reinvigorating views in Zhaoqing with China Tea Leaves.
