"I was in the area and stopped in the museum. Pretty interesting! I was in the museum for just under an hour. I would recommend stopping in if the area"

Reasons to Recommend: Bruce Lee's ancestral home is located at No. 13, Yongqing 1st Lane, Enning Road. In the 1940s, it was built by Li Haiquan, the father of Bruce Lee, the "Four Famous Ugly" of Cantonese Opera. After Li Haiquan moved to Hong Kong, he rented out the house. In 1978, the descendants of the Li family took back the property rights. Bruce Lee's ancestral home was marked in the campus of Peizheng Primary School. The dilapidated appearance was inconspicuous. If it weren't for the "cultural heritage protection" seal on the wooden door, it would almost be mistaken for the school's utility room. It has a brick-wood structure with the architectural style of Xiguan Mansion, with carved beams and colorful carved glass screens. The area is about 400 square meters. The Liwan District Government plans to restore its old appearance and develop it into a memorial hall for Bruce Lee's ancestral home and a medical and martial arts hall.

"I didn’t want to come to Hong Xiuquan’s former residence. I just went to Yuanxuan Taoist Temple and found that it was closed. When I turned back, I found that the sign of Hong Xiuquan’s former residence said it was two kilometers away from here, it was very close. A ticket for Hong Xiuquan’s former residence is 13 yuan, children are free, and there is a Hong Xiuquan memorial next to it, but it is very troublesome to visit here now. In addition to scanning the Suikang code, everyone has to fill in the "Visitor Health Status Registration Form", even adults fill in it. Yes, kids have to fill in that. The most depressing thing is that the former residence and the memorial have to be filled out once, that is, each person who comes to this small attraction has to fill in the form twice, and the form is not correct for the ID, so fill in it casually, right? No one knows how to fill in the real information. It is excusable for the requirements to be so strict under the epidemic, but does it make sense to just do superficial work? It is better to just recognize the Suikang code... I have complained so much. The former residence of Hong Xiuquan is more beautiful than expected, but it is basically newly built. It is also a patriotic education base. If you are shopping nearby, you can consider stopping by..."

Reasons to Recommend: The memorial hall is located next to the former residence of Hong Xiuquan in Huadu District. In addition to the preface hall, the memorial hall is divided into four exhibition halls.

For the bottom plate, highlighting its hometown characteristics. The second exhibition hall reflects the process of Hong Xiuquan's leadership of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom's uprising in Jintian Village, Guangxi, using the shape of the Jintian Uprising flag as the bottom plate, with a yellow bottom and red borders, and with lights to set off, re-displaying the turbulent and vigorous momentum of the Jintian Village Uprising. The third exhibition hall is to insist on fighting. To defend Tianjing, it adopts the style of the palace of the Celestial Dynasty and exhibits the establishment of the peasant regime of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom. The content of the fourth exhibition hall is the tragic struggle, using the image of the broken city wall, and the color is dark purple to set off the theme of the besieged Tianjing and Hong Xiuquan leading the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom soldiers to fight heroically.

Next to the guardrail stands a dark brown granite stele, inscribed with "Professor Chen Yinke's Former Residence" and a brief introduction to his life.

Go up the stairs. The arched door is three steps wide. The red wooden door is half-open to both sides. Through the glass of the inner door, you can see the stairs to the second floor on the right side. This is also the place where Chen Yinke gave lectures.

The difference from the second floor is that the doors and windows on the first floor are vaulted, and there is an old-style street lamp directly above the door.

"There are two signs in front of the door: "Xu Guangping's Former Residence" with a line of small characters "Guangzhou Cultural Relics Protection Unit". It was established in 1994. The paint is peeling off and the handwriting is difficult to identify. The next gold plate with black background was only put up in 2012, the cultural relics protection unit of Yuexiu District, "Xu Yingfu Former Residence". Xu Yingquan is Xu Guangping's grandfather. He once served as the governor of Linjiang Prefecture in Jiangxi Province and the prosecutor of Jiangsu Province. He was known as "Xu Qingtian" for vindicating hundreds of unjust cases."

Reasons to Recommend: On Gaudi Street, where merchants gather, Xu Di is the place where the Xu family lives together, and Xu Guangping belongs to the seventh room of the Xu family. The former residence now covers an area of more than 200 square meters and is inhabited by Xu Guangping's two nephews, Xu Xiyu (deceased), Xu Xishen and their descendants. There are about 10 people. The former residence is a two-bedroom compound with Lingnan architectural features, with large blue brick houses on both sides, a patio in the middle, surrounded by walls, and the courtyard is a closed space. Due to its long history and lack of maintenance and repairs, we can only vaguely see the engravings and relief decorations on the four wooden carved doors standing outside the halls on both sides, but the colors are mottled. Only from the roof decoration of the large blue-brick roof with hanging beasts, we can see the year. The glory of the Xu family. This blue-brick building is full of dangers, with crumbling walls and tiles, and most of the supports of the wooden structure are peeling off and cracking, making it easy to collapse. According to Xu's descendants, the house on the side of the courtyard was demolished before liberation and rebuilt later. The three small kitchens on the patio are so crowded that only one person can pass through the aisles. Styrofoam boxes and other sundries are placed on the roof, and the surrounding air is full of hanging clothes. The stairs and the interior of the house are not well lit, and the original large mansion is now divided into small families. If you don't listen to the special introduction, you really don't know that this dilapidated house is the former residence of Xu Guangping, the famous wife of Lu Xun.

"The former residence of Lu Xun in Baiyun Tower is on Baiyun Road. The yellow three-story building among the green trees is still eye-catching. Although it is a cultural relics protection unit in Guangdong Province, there is currently no exhibition hall reserved for visitors to visit. Now it has become a residential building. You can only imagine the situation inside."
