One of the many, many, many towers on the way. Built like an old mini castle. We had a great time climbing through to get to the other side, whilst a group of old tourists were getting closer and closer from behind. We couldn't understand how they could be so fast until we met some walking AROUND the towers...

Temple of the Chinese money God. The guy faked his own death and had people burn paper money for his funeral only so he could reappear a few days later. Chinese believe that burning money guarantees a good rebirth

Incredibly large piece of marble with dragons and horses dancing around on it, but I'm sure you could see that.
