Preface
This time round I didn't have to plan for two months like I did in last October, before I embarked for my another free-and-easy adventure.

And there's no bit of nervousness or anxiety prior to this trip as compared to the last.

(P.S: Try to grab one of those cushioned chairs at "Burger King" at Terminal 2, if you want a fair bit of luxury to bunk overnight at airport.)

前提
至少没像上回用了足足两个月的时间来筹备这次的逍遥行,只知道想要去就请了假,订了机票去走了.

相对比较上回出发前的忐忑不安,这次显得较轻松自在.

(贴士:如想好好睡个觉,就尽早在第2搭客大厦的汉堡包王那的座位霸个位咯!)

OneLink Mall
To be honest, I was torn between whether should I be heading to Chan's Ancestral Hall (literary translated) and "OneLink" upon arrived at Guangzhou (being the transit point for this trip).

Being a history buff, the former (Chan Ancestral Hall) would be a "must" especially I missed out that place where I was at this city last October.

However, "OneLink" looked like an attractive option too for any petty traders to source for their merchandise (although I must reiterated that I'm not a shopping guy).

But after much deliberations and time constraint (having wasted 30minutes or so to wait for the shuttle service and the long journey along the way from the airport), "OneLink" was given the nod over Chan's Ancestral Hall.

万菱广场(海珠广场)
说实在地真不知该如何利用第一天在广州的缓冲期。

上回初到广州没到过的"陈家祠",对我一个历史迷来说,其能错过呢?不过,堆满琳琅满目的货物的海珠广场及隔邻的万菱商场毕竟也有吸引人的地方(虽说本人不是个购物狂)。

但基于时间和行程的考量,我还是望万菱广场去了(毕竟这次主要的重点是在杭州而广州则是中途站)。

The mall is packed almost daily 广场内总是天天人山人海 Crate like this is a common sight 满载而归
Narrow walkway is jammed with merchandise and traders
货物和采购商占了据狭小的走道
货物应有尽有 Well stocked-up merchandise

DIRECTION TO "OneLink" Mall
The easiest way to get to this wholesale mall is to take metro to the "Haizhu Guangchang (Square)" station and it's only a few minutes of walk to there.

But do keep an eye on the heavy traffic (be it human or vehicular), as everyone seems to be short of time and in a hurry to make their place out of the mall to their stall.

Plenty of hard bargaining are required when deal with the folks there (as it's always the case everywhere) if you buying in bulk.

如何抵达万菱广场
最直接了当的方法就是搭地铁到海珠广场站,然后步行一小段路就可到达万菱广场。但必须注意超多的人潮和车量的动向和流量。

讨价还价是难免地(那里都是这样子嘛)如果是要大量购入货物。
