Day Visit to Dapeng, Guangdong Province

A one-day visit is being contemplated to the town of Dapeng in Eastern Guangdong. The visit is scheduled to take place on Saturday 24 October and will involve an early start leaving Kowloon before 9 am. The journey to Dapeng will be by coach and will take approximately three hours. We will arrive in Dapeng at noon and lunch will be organised at a local restaurant.

The afternoon will be taken up by a guided tour of some of the historical parts of Dapeng, led by Past President, Dr Patrick Hase. Hopefully time will permit a tour of the more historical parts of the town including sections of the wall and the surviving gates. We will also visit the museum and the residence of the Chinese commander, who opposed he British at the battle of Kowloon Bay at the beginning of the Anglo Chinese War in 1841.

The return trip to Kowloon will be timed with the intention of arriving back in Tsim Sha Tsui at approximately 7 pm.

Members wishing to participate in this visit are reminded to ensure they have the appropriate visa for entry into the PRC.

Further details, including timings, cost and itinerary, together with an application form will be published in the September Newsletter.
