Visit to Opium War Fort Museum -Lili and Harrie

Today was exhausting and interesting. The sun was out for the most part, and the Opium War Fort Museum we visited was absolutely gorgeous! We got there mid-morning and spent most of the day exploring the old fort and reading about the war itself on the museum walls. We had Paul one of the Utahloy staff explain to us the opium trades relation to China’s history, which was quite fascinating.

The afternoon was mainly a bus trip, but we did go shopping eventually in Dongguan! Dairy Queen and Starbucks for the win! We were exploring the modern mall of numerous, but sadly, it was a mainly westernised.

A fun yet educational day!
