This park was a LOT bigger than expected. Lots of people seemingly with no work to do just stretching, doing tai chi and gossiping in Chaozhou which I immensely enjoyed. This park, dotted with temples here and there, was also where I crashed a religious procession...
This statue is housed in Chaozhou's most famous attraction, the still active Kaiyuan Temple built in AD 738. This picture shows the front of Guanyin - there's still a whole lotta' arms to the side and at the back which you can't see in this picture!

Me in my ancestral home of Chaozhou!! This is on the famous Guangji Bridge, built in the Song Dynasty, which crosses over the River Han.
