day trip to huizhou

Discover history and connections to ancient China in Shenzhen’s neighbor to our east, Huizhou!

You might think of Huizhou just another neighbor of Shenzhen, but actually it has witnessed centuries of history, plus has a beautiful lake where you can stroll, take a boat, or hike.

We will visit the well-planned Huizhou museum, where you can see works by local contemporary artists, and learn about the ancient and classical history of the area, and the many historical figures who lived here, including one of the most famous poets Su Dongpo.

We will have lunch (Chinese-AA, or on your own), and then make our way to Huizhou’s West Lake, a sister to Hangzhou’s famous West Lake. This really is a cultural landscape, with islands and bridges with poetic names and scenes that recall Su Dongpo’s quiet verses. Greta will give a short tour here, and then let you have enough free time to wander on your own or get out on the water in a paddle, touring, or electric boat.
