What to do in Guangzhou
Experience the Pearl River Night Cruise
Venue: Peal River
Duration: about 2 hours (daily 18:00-20:00, 20:00-21:30 and 20:30-22:30)
The night scene viewed along the Pearl River is so chroming that you must take a look at it. The best way is by boat. The trip will start from the Xidi Dock and end at the Guangzhou Bridge.
As the third largest river in China, the Pearl River measures 2,129 meters in length, with its name deriving from the Haizhu Rock (Sea Pearl Rock). When the thousand-meter long Pearl River went through Guangzhou City, a huge rock island in the center of the river was scoured time and again and became smooth and bright like a pearl, called 'Sea Pearl Rock', hence the name 'Pearl River' for the river with this rock.
Enjoy a Gourmet Tour in Guangzhou
Located in southern China, Guangzhou is home to Canton Cuisine - a well-known cooking style for home and abroad. Cantonese is fond of eating and skilled in cooking and food innovation, thus in China, it is a saying goes that “Eating in Guangzhou”.
The specialties here are Sliced boiled Chicken, Roasted Suckling Pig and varied seafood dishes. Snacks and Dim Sum like Wonton, Double-layer Steamed Milk and Herb Jelly, are also high recommended. Besides, have a Canton Morning Tea is the thing that every tourist should not miss.
In a wider definition, to go to drink morning tea does not just mean to drink one cup of tea after another without eating. Instead you will find many dim sums (snacks), which are quite tasty with the companion of tea. For Canton residents, it is an access to socialize rather than having a breakfast. They do not only mean to eat but want to spread news, exchange friendship and negotiate business. When negotiation is deadlocked, Cantonese people will find a decent teahouse to settle down their issues in a more relaxing atmosphere.
