We spent a few days there with our son just before COVID – he was vegetarian at the time which made restaurants challenging! We did find a pretty good cafe type thing in the fake market under AP Plaza. The fake market is worth going in its own right if you want to see the vast amount of fake stuff you can buy!

Streetfood around Yuyuan gardens is interesting/entertaining. We did find a really nice restaurant there but cant for life of me remember, and cant use google streetview to find it!

I’d avoid the bigger food courts especially if they look like a giant buffet with a central paying area, as they were a bit crap and nothing like the Hawker markets in Singapore.

We managed to get a table booked at Captains Bar right on the edge of the roof top so had decent views of the skyline.

Jade Buddha Temple was interesting. There is a sort of “peace & quiet” area where you arent allowed phones and can get some calligraphy pens & scrolls and just spend a bit of time tracing some Chinese characters & stuff.
