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. Our next sightseeing trip was to Shamian Island 沙面岛. It is not really an island, just separated from the mainland by a canal.
It had been a tourist attraction as well as an important port for Guangzhou's foreign trade from Song Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty. You can read more about its history from source.
We took the metro and alight at the Huangsha Station just a short walk to the island, via an overpass crossing the busy Liu'ersan Road .
Once you exit from the Exit D from Huangsha Metro Station, look to your left and you can see an overhead pedestrian bridge. Walked towards the overhead bridge and cross over to the other side, you can see a bridge over a canal. Cross over the small bridge over the canal and Shamian Island is right there.
It is very safe over here,lots of policemen and security camera all over the place.
There are a lot of colonial buildings over here due to the short occupation by western countries during the Qing Dynasty.
It looked more like a park to me, very clean and beautiful.
