About Guangzhou

Guangzhou is a great international metropolis which beautifully melds the traditional and the modern. It's also a gourmand's paradise. The skyscrapers that tower in a veritable forest in Zhujiang New Town are representative of the new Guangzhou. While here you can also see a wide variety of different kinds of modern architecture. If you would like to experience traditional Lingnan style, then you can visit Old Xiguan. Lingnan, or south of the Nanling Mountains, refers to the areas of Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan and parts of Vietnam. At the Chen Clan Ancestral Hall you can see classic folk art such as carved wood, carved brick, engraved metal, pottery and molded plaster. Don't miss out on the colonnaded buildings at Shangxiajiu. Lychee Bay and the Xiguan Big Mansion are also well worth visiting. Beijing Road’s modern array of shopping mixes with Yuexiu Park’s ancient legendary statues and historic monuments to display Guangzhou's vast thousand-year history. This place also has Chimelong Paradise, an amusement park loved by the little ones, and parks like the TIT Creative Industry Zone serve the tastes of creative individuals. Have a cup of morning tea, try out the traditional dimsum, or tuck into some classic Cantonese food. Eating your way through the city is a good way to spend your time.
