You will visit South Shaolin Temple first.the Southern Shaolin Temple was built in the first year of Yongding of Chen in the Southern Dynasties (A.D. 557), only 61 years late than Songshan Shaolin Temple. The temple was burned down once by the Qing Regime during the reign of the Qing Emperor Kangxi. Major scenic spots include: the Southern Shaolin Temple, cultural relic exhibition hall, The Juyi Hall of Tiandi Uprising Group, Honghua Pavilion, Nine-Lotus Rock, One-Finger-Zen Stone, Purple Cloud Stone and Jiuhua-Diecui etc.

There are many prayers coming and spending much of their time in prayer and supplication. Then head to Mazu Cultural Park is quite closed to the Ancestral Temple. On the top of the mountain in the park stands a huge stone statue in 14 meters high, as well as a stone carvings and temple building complex. If you take a boat and watch them from far away, these buildings and carvings kind of look like “the Potala Palace on the sea”, very magnificent. The Meizhou Ancestral Temple of Goddess Matsu and the Cultural Park are all sited in the northern part of the island, so you can visit them both together. The other major tourism items of the island include: the Tide Music of Meizhou Island, Erwei Holy Stone Park and Jiubaolan Golden Beach etc. If you have enough time, you can also visit some of them (own expense) .
