It’s hard to figure out why exactly the city of Quánzhōu is such an overlooked travel destination. Hugging China’s southern coastline, it has a rich history as a key component of The Maritime Silk Road. The urban sprawl is awash with ancient stone streets, temples and squares, while the predominantly classic Chinese architecture occasionally fuses with Islamic flavors. If like me you’re lucky enough to have a bit of time on your hands, there’s more than enough to do for 3-4 days. So why not dive into my articles on:
