- Definitely don’t miss the art museum. The paintings and sculptures from the 17th century were especially amazing, as were the more contemporary pieces on the top floor. What some people don’t know is that it’s actually a donation-only museum. You don’t have to pay to get in if you don’t want to, but I suggest putting at least a few dollars in because after all, they have to keep up the museum and pay the staff.
- There’s a little out-of-the-way diner on Main Street called Beulah’s, and they have the best roasted yams and tofu casserole I’ve ever had in my life! This is one place that shouldn’t be missed by any visitors looking to sample the local cuisine.
- Most tourists probably won’t know about it, but there is a bar in the downtown district that is so cool and has such a diverse clientele. I think it’s called Boho or something like that, but I will never forget when the bartender got up on the bar, called for everyone’s attention, and did the Michael Jackson moonwalk across the whole thing! It was so funny, and everyone was hooting and hollering. No visit here is complete with a drink or burger at Boho.

The museum houses some of the world's finest examples of ancient Chinese art from the Han to the Ming and Qing dynasties. Two special exhibition galleries showcase international works, keeping pace with global artistic trends.

I saw an exhibition featuring drawings of Hong Kong and Macau that was somewhat informative on the two cities' early years. Another exhibit focused on the paintings of Guangdong region of China from the Ming and Qing dynasties. A quite pleasing grey marble gallery housed an exhibit on Wu School painting which I imagine is of interet primarily to serious art scholars and fans. The modern art display was quick to pass through after viewing the classic paintings upstairs.
