Guangzhou was formerly known as Canton and is a prosperous metropolis situated on estuary of the Pearl River, China’s third longest river. The city, which is very accessible from Hong Kong and Macau, is a pioneer of economic development and its success can be seen in its modern architecture. This is especially evident along the banks of the Pearl River.
The Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall situated on a hill above the city was built in memory of China’s Doctor Sun Yat-sen, founder of the Republic of China prior to the revolution.
It is a masterpiece of architecture and is used for conferences and performances.
The imposing Temple of Six Banyan Trees is an iconic structure and one of four Buddhist temples in Guangzhou. It was originally built in 537 AD. The eye-catching Six Banyan Pagoda is beautifully constructed.
The ancestral temple of the Chan family, also known as the ChanClanAcademy is now a museum of folk arts and crafts.
For anyone who has visited Shanghai, Guangzhou will compare very favourably with that city.
