Guangzhou Goonie: Sadly I had to take this with me when I moved. My new house location is too close to other caches to set up near my house... hopefully it will be resurrected again in the future.

Geocache Description:

Bring two AAA batteries to the largest cache in Asia!

This is also a TB Hotel (safe haven for trackables in the very uncertain geo-China)


Actually, I'm not sure what the largest cache in Asia really is, but I think this one is a contender!  Come to my home to find out: 

No. 88 Feng Hui Agile Garden
Nancun, Panyu District
Guangzhou, Guangdong
China
中国广东省广州市番禺区南村镇雅居乐花园峰会88号

From Metro Line 3, get off at Xia Jiao and exit out of A or B.  Then jump onto bus 56 and take it to the end of the line (about 20 min.) which will be within our community gates at the Main Bus Station.  From there you can get on a free community bus.  Take the 邻居 (Lin Ju) community bus to the Primary School, which is where the bus does a 3 point turn to come back to the Main Bus Stop. You can navigate from there.  

If the security guard asks where you're going, just show them our address and he'll let you in.  

Finding the cache should not be a problem ... But opening it will require some brains and perhaps a little teamwork, so bring your geo-buddy!

I hope you have fun with this cache, and if we're home and you look friendly, we'll probably invite you in for a cup of coffee.  If we don't invite you in, it's probably because we have something going on.  We are a pretty busy household, so please don't take it personally!  

Also we want to fill this cache with cool stuff so please bring your JUMBO size swag to trade... and don't forget the batteries!

Being a Jumbo sized cache, I'm giving out a very special First to Find , Second to Find and even a Third to Find.

P.S. the cache puzzle is clumsily manageable by one person with long-ish arms, but much easier with some help. Bring a friend to make this experience more fun! I have decided to leave this cache out at night because the "effect" is really cool when doing this cache in the dark, though finding critical clues can be more tricky.


GEOCACHING IN CHINA NOTE: (applies to all of mainland China as of 2015) The coordinates of the geocache are correct, but the map will not display the "dot" in the right place. The actual location is usually east and south of the dot on the map.
This is why it is essential that you:
1) Rely on the compass for exact location (for some reason it is accurate even though the map is not)
 
2) Read all clues and description carefully.
