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. Day 3 of our trip, we started by taking the metro to Chen Clan Academy Station to visit Chen Chan Academy. It was so easy taking the metro, once we exited we could see the academy, is actually a museum.
The street above the station is so clean.
But first we had to hunt for our breakfast. Just a short walk from the staion was a HongKong Cafe that sold bread, pastries, dim sum, noodles, etc.
We had some sandwiches and toast bread and tea, they dont serve coffee :(
The Chen Clan Academy ( 陈家祠) is an academic temple in Guangzhou China built by the 72 Chen (It is usually romanised as Chan in Cantonese) clans for their juniors' accommodation and preparation for the imperial examinations in 1894 in Qing Dynasty. Later it was changed to be the Chen Clan’s Industry College, and then middle schools afterward. Now it houses the Guangdong Folk Art Museum (广东民间工艺博物馆). You can read more information from wikipedia.
Right infront of Chen Clan Academy was this huge arch.
It was so cold that morning, easily below 10 degrees celsius. We saw a group of women performing some drum dance. Not sure if this is a daily routine or just for a Television recording. We saw a TV station and hosts filming the drum performance.
Need to pay an admission fee of CNY10 to enter the Chen Clan Academy. I like visiting this museum, love the beautiful ancient building and there are some nice exhibits inside as well as many lovely statues. Very worth the visit.
A short video of the drum performance infront of Chen Clan Academy. Love the performance, so glad I was there at the right time.
More photos of Chen Clan Academy in tomorrow post.
