Do[edit][add listing]

Enjoy some streetside barbeque in Huangyan District's Night Market, where various trinkets and articles of clothing can also be found. Just say to any taxi driver "ye shi" (sounds like "yeh sure") and you'll get there. The eggplant is highly recommended.

You can also ascend Jiufeng Mountain, the impossible-to-miss backdrop of Huangyan district, which offers a good view of the region, numerous Confucian and Taoist temples, and a Buddhist temple near the summit that features a vegetarian restaurant. Stone and cement steps run up most of the mountain paths, though other paths require a little bit of hands-on climbing. You are likely to spot numerous residents descending with jugs filled with water from the mountain's spring, which is potable and almost sweet-tasting after a climb on a hot Summer day.

Also in Huangyan, be sure to visit the Celtic House Pub, a rather good Irish-American style pub with a menu that includes hamburgers, pulled pork, pizzas, salads, chili, and seasonal specials, and a fairly wide range of imported beers and liquors. Enjoy a free game of pool and get friendly with the colorful local clientele and international visitors alike. Be sure to say hi to Stephen or CJ. The Celtic House Pub is located along a wide alley just east of the Xi Jie Xiao Qu apartment complex.

For a small city there are plenty options in Jiaojiang especially for having a few beers. Most can be found in the central district. If you are new to the city just ask any taxi driver for 'A Go Go KTV' and they will take you to the central district where many bars are to be found. These include - Passerby Bar - Muse - Lan Kwai Fong Expect to pay 25rmb for 1 pint of beer - Lucky's Expect to pay 35rmb for 1 pint of beer

A little more out of the centre are two new bar/ restaurants. Ibiza and F Lounge. Both serve good quality Western food and drink but expect to pay Western prices. These both have a outdoor dining / drinking area

There are numerous local Chinese style bars for an authentic Chinese Bar experience, whilst they are harder to find they may be well worth the effort to take advantage of the low prices and colourful clientele
