Back to My Hometown – Part 8
@Thailand Buddhism Temple and Huiru Park

Chaozhou is the howntown of many oversea Chinese. The Teochew diaspora can be found almost anywhere in the world, especially Southeast Asia, North America, Australasia and France. The diaspora, at least estimated, contains over 10 million people, which is as much as the population of Chaoshan itself. And the places where we went today are related to a Teochew diaspora lived in Thailand.

Xie Huiru left howntown to Thailand when he was just a teenage. He succeeded to be a millionaire there and came back to make a significant contribution. Mr Xie donated lots of money to build many foundation constructions. Such as the Han River Bridge, the Chaozhou Huiru Library, Chaozhou Daily Building, many studios of Chaozhou Opera and so on. And Thailand Buddhism Temple and Huiru Park are also built with his help.

Long stairs to climb again 😯

Because here is region revered, we didn’t take any photos inside of it.
Then we make our way to the Huiru Park.
This park was called as Eastern Mountain Park before Mr Xie Huiru donated to rebuild it. And there is a statue of him stands at the entrance of the park.
And our aim is very clear, to the top! to the sky wheel ! 😎
After a long hiking on the hill, we arrived the sky wheel finally.

It was so exciting when we were rising with the sky wheel. Though we were just on it for a short time, it would be remembered forever.
Then after getting down from the sky wheel, we started to walk down from the hill.
this photo was taken from the hill. Can you read the poster words 😎

    @boon
    Shantou is very close to Chaozhou, you can make a trip that include these two places. And you can also have time to visit your hometown, 海门镇.
