Hakka Park

Park in Meizhou

Pebbled paths and a willow-fringed pond make this small park on the north bank of the Méijiāng River a delight to stroll around in. The Hakka Museum here offers a quick warm-up to the culture of Hakkaland, and there are a couple of interesting 1930s buildings – Xiānqín Building (先勤樓; Xiānqínlóu), a courtyard-style Hakka house; and the East–West hybrid Dáfū Building (達夫樓; Dáfūlóu), which evokes a pseudo-Western train terminal drawn by Japanese animator Miyazaki.

The Huáng Zūnxiàn Memorial is a famous Qing dynasty writer's home.
