Day four in China - Jade Buddha Temple

Day four in China was the day that we spent visiting one of the places I had been looking forward to the most - the Jade Buddha Temple!

On the way to the temple though we stopped off to pick up our tickets to the Chinese Acrobats later on in the week.

We then headed off to see the amazing Jade Buddha Temple, and after avoiding all the people trying to sell us stuff outside the temple (and also avoiding the dodgy men who wanted the take us for a "tour" of the temple). The inside of the temple was really amazing - everything I had hoped it would be.

After spending time in the Jade Buddha Temple we tried to decide what to do next, eventually it was decided to go to an old refurbished part of the city which had art and antique markets. Whilst the art and antique markets weren't as exciting as I hoped - we did get our names put onto little kitty beads! Good times!
