PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG. Woke up fresh and eager to explore the city. After breakfast, we took the metro from Haizhu Square and head to Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall Metro Station. It costs us only CNY2.
Upon alighting, we saw the station was quite empty and very clean indeed.
They even have umbrella for rent incase of rain. Very convenient.
Best to take a photo of the map(so you can view in your camera screen) if you decided to visit the nearby Western Han Nanyue Musuem which is about 10 minutes walk from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall. Will show you the map again when I posted about the museum.
We need to pay an admission fee of CNY10 to visit Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall.
The smell of chestnut attracted us.
We bought about 2 katis of chestnuts at CNY20. The smaller chestnuts tasted better than the huge ones.
Interesting to see the hawker weighing the chestnut with the old chinese weighing scale. Used to see this type of chinese weighing scale when I was young. Back home we dont get to see this type of weighing scale anymore except in chinese medical hall.
I still can recall this statue, it was still in the same place as when I first visited in 1986. Guangzhou Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is really a magnificent building in the shape of octangle.
Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall is built in order to commemorate the contributions of Sun Zhongshan, the great predecessor of Chinese revolution for democracy. It is a memorial construction donated by the people in Guangzhou and the overseas Chinese and is listed as one of the first class cultural relics in Guangdong Province. Designed by the famous Chinese architect, Mr. Lu Yanzhi, the construction started in 1929 and finished in October of 1931. You can read more from source.
Statue of Dr Sun Yat Sen.
Inside the hall was a stage for performance and exhibits of historical documents and photos related to the works of Dr Sun Yat Sen.
