Parks in Zhuhai

When thinking of China’s cities many people have Shanghai and its big skyscrapers in mind – hectic city life, hundreds of people in the streets, noise and pollution.
But there is also another side of Chinese cities. Each of them has a number of parks and all of them have different ‘specialities’. No park is like the other but they all have one thing in common: there is always something to do. No park is just trees, a lake and grass fields.

Each park has small shops where you can buy traditional things, scarves, sunglasses, (jade) bracelets, and much more. There are also stores where you can buy drinks, snacks (like popcorn, one of my favourites) and  usually coconuts.

Some have religious places with shrines, many have hills or mountains which you can climb and if there is a lake you usually can hire boats to paddle on the lake. Most of the parks that have mountains also have gondolas at the peak of the mountain where one can enjoy the view. Other parks also offer small amusement or water parks. Most of the time, you can also find playgrounds for small children.

The last one I visited had an aviary where you can pet different parrots and see birds that were trained in different things. I made friends there with a Cacadu which I named Fritz (check the pictures). That park also has a cable cart going up the mountain but to go back down you needed to take a slide which was a lot of fun!

All parks are nicely decorated and are taken care of. You can easily spend a whole day there. If you do so you can enjoy the beautiful lights in the park – especially by the lake. It is a really nice way of spending your Sunday. J

See you and 再见,

Trip to Shanghai and Hong-Kong

It was really a great trip and the cities are beautiful.Each of these two cities has something special and unique.
I loved the nature around Hong-Kong. I never saw such awesome landscapes and I was really surprised about that, because all I have heard about Hong-Kong before was that it is a high-tech city without any taxes for electronic stuff and with loads of huge skyscrapers and that the nightlife should be even better than in Shanghai… But nobody ever was talking about the nature. The feeling in Hong-Kong was really like having holidays and I´m really happy I made this trip. To be honest the only reason why I could do this trip was because I´m doing my internship in Qingdao! Qingdao is so cheap, if I think of the living costs and everything else. I couldn´t afford these experiences if I had lived in Beijing or Shanghai, because everything there is much more expensive.
