Guiyang in GuizhouThursday, 6 November 2014
My Guizhou travel, with the village of Dali as the main focus, started and finished in the capital city, Guiyang. There are direct flights to and from Hong Kong and there’ll soon be a high speed train service linking Guiyang with Guangzhou.
Hitting the sights in Guiyang means the Jiaxiu Pavilion on a rock in the Fuyu Bridge in the middle of the river and the Cuwei Gongyuan temple-pavilion-garden complex on the riverbank overlooking it. There’s not a lot to see in Guiyang.
◄ On the last night I returned to the temple to enjoy tea – served with some ceremony and accompanied by a pi-pa performance – on the terrace beside the pavilion. The modern city provided a backdrop.
