Sweltering Shantou

  6 votes

I lived in this city for 7 months and I would not recommend anyone to travel to this area. It is not very hospitial to foreigners, and is beyond hot. If you like to feel that you are in a sauna, and trapped under a microscope this may be the place for you.

Favourite spots:
The old city which is the only interesting thing to see and it wasn't even built by the Chinese. It is an area of town that was built 200 years ago by the English when they landed.

What's really great:
The only thing that I enjoyed was that it was green all year around.

Sights:
There is an island directly across from Shantou with a newly errected Buddhist Temple that is worth checking out.

Restaurants:
Halleys Cafe, the only nice resturant in town where you can get a deccent meal without getting food poisioning.
