What people are saying:

I traveled on the weekend and this stop came to the Huidong area of Huizhou. There is an ancient city of Pinghai. The ancient city of Pinghai was built in the 18th year of Hongwu in Ming Dynasty and has a history of more than 600 years. It is located at the southernmost tip of Huidong County and faces the South China Sea. , East of the Red Bay, west of Daya Bay. At the entrance of Pinghai Ancient City, there is a stone bridge with 4 piers and 5 holes built in the Qing Dynasty. This bridge has experienced more than 230 years of wind and rain. Except for a partial collapse of one pier in the river, the rest of the piers and bridge body are intact. This is in Huidong County. The oldest stone bridge found, although it has experienced several floods every year, and sometimes even submerged the bridge deck, the stone bridge has remained standing. The ancient city we see now, except for the west gate where the navigation takes us to, where there is an ancient city tower, the rest of the ancient city is basically modern. The ancient city tower in Ximen is not big, so I didn't go up because it happened to rain heavily that day. It seems that the city tower should be temple-like, and you can worship. After passing the west gate, we entered the ancient city. On the opposite side of the gate, there was a big map posted on the wall. We were very excited at the time because we saw many scenic spots marked, but we just picked one spot. I walked in that direction and never saw it. I asked the proprietress of a fruit shop. She hadn’t heard of the temple we were looking for. Later, we finally asked people, but it said it was newly built and not open to tourists. Visit. I had to walk around in the city. There are modern buildings and modern streets. I occasionally pass by Bao Gong’s Temple. There are shops selling fireworks in the city. If you want to set off fireworks on the beach, you can buy it here. It is a wholesale store.

Additional Information


Pinghai Ancient City, known as a "living fossil" of Lingnan culture, was built around 1385 AD. At that time, this was a military fortress. In the early days of the Hongwu era in the early Ming Dynasty, in order to withstand the thieves' power, the locals began to accumulate stones and build defensive cities to resist foreign invasion. Since the Qing Emperor Kangxi, Pinghai City has additionally built a large number of forts. This constitutes a well-lined maritime defense line. Today, although the ancient city walls have been submerged under modern houses, only the city gatehouses, city walls and several other sites have been preserved. However, slowly walking through the narrow streets and lanes, you can still see its deep historical heritage.
