After finding a guesthouse late the previous afternoon and just relaxing, today we did a fair bit of sight-seeing. We bought a ticket which enabled us to visit any 5 of a selection of historic and relihious sights round the old town. The old town was beautiful. The buildings were quaint and walking through the small roads with their architecture made me feel happy.

We visited the Fujian Assembly Hall, traditionally for the Chinese to congregate. However, was made into a temple to worship the goddess of the sea. The Quan Kong temple and the Museum of History and Culture.

Following our day of sights, walking and food, we ventured down to the river front where we found a nice bar/restaurant. Sitting upstairs, we had a lovely view overlooking the river. The buckets were on special offer so we all had a bucket cocktail. A few buckets later, we decided food was in order so we ordered pizza...and then some more. A cultured, informative day and a fun, relaxed evening.
