Guangzhou Tours - 10 Best Guangzhou Tours Packages 2024

Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province, is one of the most developed regions in China. It is renowned for its impressive modern architecture, like the Canton Tower, and the host of the Canton Fair annually. However, the city's allure goes much deeper. With a rich history dating back over 2,200 years, Guangzhou has been a significant center of trade and commerce for centuries. Amidst its bustling boulevards and lanes, Guangzhou conceals hidden historical treasures waiting to be discovered: the ancient Mausoleum of the Nanyue King, the intricate Lingnan architecture of the Chen Clan Ancestral Hall, the ancient road remains on Beijing Road, the distinctive Qilou buildings at Yongqingfang, the Xiguan grant mansions in the Liwan area, and the European-style buildings on Shamian Island, etc.

Over time, this piece of land has fostered a unique Lingnan culture. The lilting tones of the Cantonese dialect and the emotive performances of Cantonese opera collectively infuse the city's cultural essence. And, of course, one cannot speak of Guangzhou without savoring its culinary legacy. It is the birthplace of Cantonese cuisine.  Food lovers can indulge in Cantonese dim sum at traditional tea houses and an array of delicacies at bustling  snack street.
