"Have a granite etching done at..." Guangzhou Favorite Tip by kimberbakos

Guangzhou General: 84 reviews and 90 photos

Favorite thing: Have a granite etching done at one of the shops. All of the stores have people who do them. They can take any photo and etch it onto a piece of granite. They are amazing. It looks just like a black and white photo that will last forever. The prices range from about $25-$50 US dollars, depending on the size and the number of people in the photo.

Fondest memory: My best memory is one that can never be replicated or experienced by other travellers. It was being on a tour bus, going from the WS to Hard Rock Cafe and having a bus full of 50 people sing 'Happy Birthday' to my daughter on her first birthday. Then our guide and a few of us who know a little Chinese sang it to her in Chinese. What a perfect example of how she will forever be a part of two countries and cultures.
