day trip – huizhou beach december 7

Quayside lanes lazing in the noonday sun, the only sounds are a sizzling wok behind a speckless doorway. On this new trip from China Tea Leaves, we’ll skip town to find brilliant-colored villages and an easy-going beach town in our neighbor Huizhou.

To the east of Shenzhen, a taste of Minnan culture seeps in the the local culture from nearby Fujian province. Here temples celebrate stories unique to this region, under sweeping cornices decorated in the distinctive multi-colored mosaic tiles you find in Xiamen and Fuzhou. Lanes are further spotted with clan houses and temples in crimson and turquoise green; everyone’s door is swept neat as a pin and festooned in orange and red couplets.

After our village exploration, we’ll head to one of Huizhou’s best coasts on Xunliao Bay, with powdery sand, then enjoy some local Hakka and barbecue dishes.

This may become your go-to escape for a holiday in the sun.

day trip – huizhou a lake and a beach april 5

Discover history and fun in the sun in Shenzhen’s neighbor to our east, Huizhou!

You might think of Huizhou as an incidental suburb of Shenzhen, but actually it has an abundance of natural beauty and even quite a bit of history! In one day away from Shenzhen, you can wander amongst a classical Chinese garden, and sun yourself on the sands of a wide open beach!

First, we’ll visit 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.

After our time unwinding at West Lake, we’ll head south to the coast to Silver Beach. This is a newly developed area with an expansive beach, hotels, and restaurants. Take your time to stroll the sands, wade in the water, or just soak up the sea air and sun’s rays. Our default plan will be to return to Shenzhen by 6:30pm. (If the group desires, we could stay for sunset and dinner in one of Silver Beach’s seafood restaurants, returning to Shenzhen after dinner. Let me know your preference when booking.)
