On day 3, we start our journey early in the morning. The first stop is to visit Sun Yet monument. It’s a very unique building with intricate Chinese carving and you can learn about the history of the Chinese leader. Besides this place is also good for snap shot 😉
The fee to enter this place is also very minimal and you have to pay for the parking too.
After visited the Sun Yet iconic building, we went to wholesale market in Guangzhou. Since we went there 2 weeks before Chinese New Year, so many outlets already close…:(
But one thing is that we had the chance to shop with the local who is preparing for Chinese New Year.
After testing our shopping skill, we went to a local halal restaurant in Guangzhou, it is located in front of the masjid. the masjid itself is a nice place for a historical visit in Guangzhou. The architecture is a mixed between Chinese, Central Asia and Arabic element.
The following image is the section for the woman to pray. Look at the architecture…you really feel like you are in the old time of China.
The following image is the minaret for the azan…Subhanallah
This bun is filled with mutton and it is freshly made out of clay oven outside the shop. It is super delicious. How I wish to go there again 🙂
We also ordered chicken and mutton kebab. It served with roti. Yummy!
After finished praying and eating, we went for sight seeing at the town and our last stop is Canton Tower. It is a beautiful sight at night and after having a cup of coffee there we decide to go back to the hotel.
For dinner, me and my husband were commissioned to find a halal restaurant nearby our hotel. Yes..we did find one! Alhamdullilah
Most of the Muslim in Guangzhou is descendant from Uighur. Thus the restaurant call Bazaar serves fusion cooking of Chinese and Uighur. It is simply delicious! They also serve yak…but..who dare to eat that…perhaps I am not that adventurous after all.
So, early in morning we will depart to Langkawi, Malaysia
See you again Guangzhou!
