where is Baksa

by mk369 Online Now Oct 25, 2010 at 6:47 PM

I'm visiting Taishan next month trying to find out my wife's parents old house
in possibly Nam toon village. Is this village nearby Baksa (white sand).
I can't find Baksa in Taishan map. Can you help me where it is?
Also, what's the Chinese character for Nam Toon? I believe Nam is south.
Please give me any information you know.
Thank you so much.

Mark

    I'm not sure what language that is (edit: I've discovered it's Taishanese), but it makes sense. Nam toon seems to be nancun (south village) in Mandarin, which is written 南村. I hope I'm right and that helps you. Also, baksa is baisha in Mandarin, which on maps is written 白沙镇 (baishazhen).
    Here is a link to a map that shows where it is:

    Or you can search "Baisha Jiangmen Guangdong" in google maps for a bigger one

    Oh sorry I just realized that the characters didn't show up. Let me try it this way. 南村 is nancun/nam toon and 白沙 is baisha/baksa.

    Nope, I guess this site doesn't support Chinese text. Go to nciku.com and do a search is the best I can do at this point.

    I still had my Chinese keyboard turned on even though I was typing in English, apparently this site won't support any of it. Anyway, go to nciku.com and search for nan cun (south village) and bai sha , and you should be able to find the characters.

    Farang27, unfortunately VT site won't support the Chinese characters, so don't bother. :)
