I was visiting a relative in Chang Ping during the last few days of Chinese New Year. Chang Ping is one of the bustling counties in the city of Donguan city in Guangdong Province, China. It is located about an hour drive from Shenzhen. The county was formerly an agricultural village but had seen rapid development over the last twenty years with the rise of the manufacturing sector. Chang Ping is one of the counties that had supported Donguan city fame as the “factory of the world” with its cheap labour and abundant manufacturing capacity.
I spent a few days and like what i see here. I took a lot of photo of the trip and would like to share with my readers here. Here is one of the many posts i will put up on Chang Ping.
this is one of the main streets in CP. both sides of the streets are lined by high rise condo but shopping are not interesting here. outlets are dominated by HK brand (baleno, U2 etc) and some China brands that i never heard off. however, if you like all things chinese like tea sets, silks, wood carvings, chinese painting, this street has it all.
same street at night…
hua mei hotel lobby – CP boosts some good 3-4 star hotels which cater to the business community. tourism is not a strong pulling point of the city but i can assure you the service industry is first class – specifically its food & beverage, spa and massage outlets.
Boton Mandarin Sky Cafe… quite a mouthful but i will remember it well, for the simple reason it serves one of the best hot-stone steak i had ever tasted. the service was excellence and the staff extremely friendly. my relative was addressed by his surname throughout the night by serving staff. Even the non-serving one would dropped by to utter a friendly “Hello”. BMSC – i will be back!
Interior of BMSC – complete with a piano and a fancy lotus-pond ceiling. too bad, the resident pianist was not in at that moment…
BMSC is famous for its fancy dessert too. No picture though as we didn’t order any. I like a the setting and the ambience. Too bad my wife was not around to savour it with me. She was away having her hair washed and shoulder massaged in another part of town.
