As the weather was so overcast with lots of smog making visibility poor, we decided to give Mt Huashan a miss 🙁
So instead we started the day with a bike ride round the 14km city wall
Finally I got Geoff on a tandem something I have wanted to do for a long time and it was great fun too 🙂
Then we set off on foot to find the big goose pagoda where I had read they had the biggest dancing fountains show in Asia, with a show every night at 9pm
Although on the Internet it says the show is every hour.
We arrived at 4pm after a good 90 min walk which had taken us down some interesting roads, which included the pet Market
I also came close to having my things pinched as some kid managed to open my bag while it was on my back 🙁 luckily i disturbed him so off he ran with out getting anything.
All my stuff was in a dry sac inside my bag which I think saved the day
The pagoda was very beautiful and 7 floors high, of course we could not resist going in and climbing to the top
We then had a long wait as the dancing fountains show was at 9 pm
Luckily it was well worth the wait as the show was spectacular and went on for a good 30 mins
Amazingly you can actually stand between the fountains, you get a bit damp but it all adds to the fun
Then it was back to the hostel to pack as it’s time to move on
This time we are flying to Guilin as the train journey would have been 27 hours
Now at Guilin airport where Hamande wanted to charge. Â£6.80 for a coffee 🙁
