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. Should one be brave enough to dive in, there’s more than enough to do for at least 3-4 days. Check out my articles on:
