Chiwan Tian Hou Temple in Shekou Shenzhen China

on 01/26/2017 - 08:00 pm

Tian Hou Gong, Chiwan's Goddess Temple, is said to have been built as an offering to the Goddess Mazu as far back as 1410. You may also see the temple's name spelled "Tin Han" is some of their marketing materials.
 
Mazu is the patron saint of seafarers and is often visited by locals before heading off to sea. They say that of the 1500 temples devoted to her across 26 countries, this is the largest in Guangdong.

 
It's a fairly small temple and is currently undergoing renovations; however, at just 15 RMB for tickets it's not a bad place to visit. We suggest calling ahead of any visit as their hours may fluctuate during renovation. 0755-2685-3219.

on 01/18/2017 - 05:32 pm

Since the city of Shenzhen announced last month that it would start enforcing it's ban on smoking indoors many bars and restaurants have started curtailing the use of cigarettes in their establishments. Public opinion has varied on the matter; however, another question has also come up repeatedly... "Is vaping indoors okay?"
 
With growing number of smokers and non-smokers alike now vaping, business owners and managers aren't quite sure whether they should be asking them to "step outside" or not. One restaurant manager asked us about it just a few days ago... "We're hearing different things, that's why we're asking you. I figure if anyone would know, it'd be you."
