What to Expect
Day 1:  Lord Bao Park-Former Residence of Li Hongzhang-Mingjiao Temple-Xiaoyaojin Park (Lunch) 

Lord Bao Park

There are three main attractions Memorial Temple of Lord Bao, Lord Bao's Tomb and Qingfeng Chamber in the park. The park was built in memory of Lord Bao. Lord Bao is regarded as one of the honest and upright officials in feudal China. It is the most renowned and influential memorial temple for Lord Bao in the country.

Former Residence of Li Hongzhang

Located in the middle of Huaihe Road in Hefei, there is a courtyard which was residence of Li Hongzhang. Li Hongzhang, born to farmers in Hefei, rose to become a key official in the late Qing dynasty, playing a part in China's modernisation (and also the signing of the much maligned unequal treaties). This is his restored former home, among the hubbub of the Huaihe Lu pedestrian street, now a museum with some English explanations on his life and politics.

Mingjiao Temple

The Mingjiao Temple is an important temple in China. It is more than 5 meters high, and covers an area of 4000 square meters. The temple base is so steep that it seems like a castle. During the Eastern Han Dynasty about 1,700 years ago, Cao Cao who was a general and main official of the Eastern Han Dynasty got on the platform on which the temple was later built to direct his troops on how to block the navy of the East Wu Kingdom. He commanded crossbowmen to fire at the enemy from the platform.

Xiaoyaojin Park

It is a beautiful park with various recreational facilities. It was also an ancient battlefield in the Three Kingdoms period and regarded the most famous scenic spots in Hefei.

Day 2:  Sanhe Ancient Town-Your Hotel (Lunch) 

Sanhe Ancient Town, 32 kilometers from Hefei city, is a typical water town with a history of 2500 years. There are many full of buildings built in Ming and Qing styles.

Sanhe is full of rivers and lakes and has several small bridges. It was named due to the three rivers that intersect in side the town. The reason why tourists come to this town is because of the "eight ancient relics" (ancient streets, ancient civilian houses, ancient battlefields, ancient teahouses, ancient rivers, ancient villages surrounded by water, ancient bridges and ancient stages attached to temples). From this day tour, you will experience all this highlights.

Meanwhile, the town is also known for its great food. You will take a Chinese lunch in the local characteristic restaurant.

After Sanhe Ancient Town, your tour guide and driver will escort you to your hotel and wave goodbye.
