Tips for you

  • The best time to come is on every Chinese traditional festival. On those special days, people living there still keep traditional celebrations.
    Timming
  • It is home to lots of students from the University of Fine Arts who are running their own art shops and workshops, so you will find several opportunities for shopping (handmade bags, hats, jewelry and postcards).
    Shopping
  • If you are foodie adventurer, try out some of the home cooked dishes in restaurants along alleys of this village.
    Things to do
  • The most amazing things are the “oyster houses” (蚝壳屋) which was built with oyster shells that would not be damaged by rain or worms.

Depending on your interest and willingness to get lost you could probably spend 1/2-1 day here wandering around. If you are coming from GZ East Station you can take bus number 45 directly to the last stop and you will be right at the entrance for Xiaozhou. Signage is iffy, the friend I went with has been there twice now and still hasn't found the Tianhou Palace. Items to take note of in the area: Oyster Shell House, Ming Well, Family Temples, Jian Clan Academy. Bridges. All the cool shops/restaurants.

Demolished old village houses make way for modern multi-storey buildings. Small streets echo the horns of construction vehicles. Ground floor spaces become tacky souvenir shops. Enjoy what's left ASAP
