As Shenzhen, Shantou is as well a Special Economic Zone, but didn't see such a boom and growth like Shenzhen. After we had Dim Sum for breakfast on this rainy day we headed over to Zhongshan Park. Afterwards we passed by the old town in the western part of central Shantou (around Zhenping Rd., Minzu Rd., Shengping Rd., Tongping Rd.). There are still a lot of historical buildings but they are in a pretty dilapidated condition and will be torn down soon. We wanted to see more of Shantou (Nan'ao Island, Lotus Flower Mountain/LianHuaShan) but the weather was so bad that we decided to drive home and then the terrible journey back home started where we were stranded a couple of times on the highway. The whole trip back took us nearly 11 hours!
