The Spring Festival is coming again, and last year’s search for the north is over. This year, it’s time to go to the southern border.
1. Let the foodies have a good year first;
2. Travel to the southernmost tip of mainland China;
3. Leisure tour on the border of the three countries in southern Xinjiang
After finding the place to go, there is nothing to prepare, so I choose a good day to set off.
D1: 2019.2.3 New Year’s Eve, Shanghai-Shantou-Guangzhou (1560km) Depart on time after dinner.
Every time the habit, first record the road code table
Another navigation map
After running wildly all night, I entered Guangdong Province at dawn, and came to the service area for an “early face” first.
The handsome guy has to show his face first, hahaha
D2: New Year’s Eve, enter Shantou at noon, the beef hot pot that has been tasted a few years ago started a gourmet journey.
But what followed was disappointment again and again, and all Shantou hot pot restaurants were closed! ! ! You can’t just leave in such a mess, you must find a family to satisfy your greed. At any rate, there was the only owner who was about to close. We stopped by us and ate the first meal of the gourmet trip. Cool! ! (More than a little stronger than Shanghai’s “Today’s Bull Market”)
The streets and alleys of Shantou are full of such beef shops, and they are basically very distinctive. (Competitive with the Fuhecheng I have eaten before)
cheap! Must order more.
Here we meet our third brother in this trip, who is also a good brother of the off-road family who went northbound last year: “Domi”!
eat! Foodies! These words are most appropriate during the Spring Festival.
Arrived in Guangzhou in the evening. Check in quickly, wash up and rush to the New Year’s Eve dinner venue: Guangzhou Restaurant
Fortunately, there is a reservation, otherwise there is no chance to be seated. (This meal will not be introduced in detail, in short: I will never go to a big table to eat at a big table in the future )
After the New Year’s Eve dinner, I wandered around the flower market, bought some snacks, and basically I could go back to wash and sleep. There are too many people in Guangzhou this year. I remember that during the Chinese New Year a few years ago, it was lively but not crowded, bustling but not chaotic. Hurry up and go, you can’t stay any longer.
New Year’s Eve dinner for a table of 30 people
There are too many people in the night market. get away!
This “lucky orange” again
D3: New Year’s Day, Guangzhou-Shunde (40km)
In Guangzhou, it would be the greatest irresponsibility to oneself not to have a morning tea with a sense of ritual. I chose a “Tao Taoju”, which is not bad. (The chain-style morning tea feels more and more factory-like, slightly better than the one in Shanghai.) I’m too lazy to take pictures, and I don’t feel it anymore. Leave immediately after eating! Shunde, foodies are here! ! !
Eating six meals a day is not uncommon in Shunde. Ha ha
In Daliang, this is the store that sells herbal tea Guiling jelly.
This is dinner, a whole eel, delicious, recommended.
The old street is full of spring.
Feel like Penang
D4: On the second day of the Lunar New Year, Shunde-Kaiping (Diaolou)-Maoming (280km)
In Daliang, a morning tea is essential.
A breakfast didn’t end until 12 o’clock, I was a god! Hurry up, you have to go to the “Shusheng Bridge”, you have to go to Kaiping and Chikan, and you have to go to Maoming to eat seafood!
The oversized banyan tree has become part of the small bridge, tree fairy!
Kaiping Diaolou, a very famous place, is estimated to be crowded again. So I decided to avoid the popular scenic spot areas, and found a few wild watchtowers in advance. Sure enough, there were few people, and I saved the ticket money. Hahaha, I can add a few more dishes at night.
Traveling by car saves a lot of effort. But fuel consumption, hahaha
Ancient watchtowers scattered in various villages
Is this dress the rhythm of winter?
Wild towers are also very good
Take a look at the ancient town of Chikan, which is being rectified.
I really wonder if another ancient town will be destroyed after such a large-scale rectification and reconstruction? Wait and see.
People go to the empty buildings, like a dead city
Under the sunset, it adds a bit of poignant feeling
There are so many places to take pictures along the way…
I really don’t understand why such a modern thing was built in the ancient village. Judge, guess what this is? Hahaha
Thought it was a wedding banquet, but it turned out to be a “clan banquet”
This is the “elderly activity center” in the village
After leisurely taking pictures all afternoon, Maoming also had a seafood supper waiting for us.
D5. Maoming – the southernmost point of the mainland – Qinzhou (480km)
Before leaving Maoming, take a few photos in the mangrove forest next to Maoming Port. If the weather is bad, retreat immediately.
Today will reach the southernmost point of this itinerary, which is also the southernmost point of mainland China: Jiaoweijiao
The temperature is getting higher and higher as the southward speed increases
Go down to the beach 1 kilometer ahead of time, planning to advance along the beach to the southernmost point. Unfortunately, after only walking 500 meters, it was blocked by a rocky beach.
Tuyu Coral Reserve Lighthouse
Last year I lived in this N4894 place. Hahaha
The new lighthouse, the old lighthouse, and the command post for crossing the sea are lined up in order
full of vicissitudes
The shoal extending from the mainland to the south is one of the few beaches that can be seen, where you can watch both sunrise and sunset.
The most satisfying film of the day. Hahaha
The shoals spread into the sea, and the sea water divides the beach into walkways of different shapes.
The setting sun and sea view are extraordinarily enchanting
All kinds of posing, various poses, competing to play
Beauty is coming soon
When it gets dark, take part in a beach rescue walk. Hahaha, I like this excitement.
“Southernmost” travel is still very immature, but slowly improving. It is estimated that it will not be long before it will become an attraction and start charging.
TIPS: Try not to get off the beach for non-off-road vehicles. The local beach is very strange, with both soft and hard. You can walk on this section, but you can’t guarantee that it will sink after 10 meters. I’ve also run into places where I had to go low four to get up the ramp.
Happy end to the “Southernmost” trip, along the village road to forage in a small town not far away. There is a very good fisherman’s restaurant in the compound of the “Town Activity Center”. The old couple has convenient parking, real dishes, and reasonable prices. I highly recommend it. (All seafood, hahaha)
So far, the first task has been completed: travel to the southernmost tip of mainland China, leave Xuwen, accommodation has become a problem, and Leizhou is so popular that it is almost full and expensive. In the end, the Erche brothers discussed and went straight to Qinzhou. (Must avoid popular tourist cities)
