Chaozhou City, China (Part 2)

Night scene at Chaozhou Square

Entertainment for the mass public comes in the form of a spectacular water and light display at Chaozhou Square which is free of charge and starts from 8pm everyday. It seems ridiculous that some of us have to pay to watch similar display back home (Mines Theme Park comes to mind). Tourists and Chaozhou residents throngs to the square in numbers without fail every night as the square doubles as a public park with many variety of flora.


Evening at Chaozhou Square


Pretty fountains lined up for your viewing pleasure


A huge square cum park for a city smaller than KL


Clock tower on the left, bank on centre & city's only 4-star hotel on the right


Clever use of water spray which doubles as a huge video screen (not visible through camera lens)


Let the light show begins!


Water display at all four corners of the square
