Baolin Temple

Located in Taiping mountain in Shunde district of Foshan (China), Baolin Temple 宝林寺 is highly recommended place during your visit in Foshan. The entry is not for free, so you have to get tickets just in the right side of the entrance. The ticket price is about 30RMB for foreigners, and about 15RMB for locals.

The best way to get there is by using Didi or taxi to 宝林寺 (Baolin Rd, Shunde District) directly or can take the bus 311 which stops right in front of the temple. Although Didi or taxi is fairly cheap in Shunde, a bus is also a good choice


Once inside there is a hall full of stairs that leads to the top of the temple. Just keep walking and enjoy

Getting to Foshan from Shenzhen (Bao An)

A while ago I headed to Shunde in Foshan to visit Bruce Lee hometown and its surroundings. Unfortunately, is not easy to get there unless you speak Chinese or you’re heading towards there with a local friend. My way to get there was asking and bother a local friend to help me on my journey. One of the best things you may find in China is the people’s kindness. Can’t complain about it!

My way to get to the bus station in Bao An was checking a guide first. It shows how to get there from Fanshen 翻身 metro station.


This is the main station in Bao An district. Once you reach there, you will be able to see the ticket office outside near the main gate, on the left side. To buy a ticket, you can show to the staff behind the window your destination. In my case, was 顺德大良客运总站 (Shunde, Daliang).

Once you bough your ticket, just need to wait for your bus. As recommendation, go to the gate 10-15 minutes in advance to make sure you won’t miss your bus, and ask to the staff there whether your ticket correspond to the bus behind

The journey is about 2 hours without traffic jam and gotta alight in the last station. Another suggestion is keep tracking your way on Google maps or Baidu maps to ensure it’s the correct station 🙂
