The WAR 步行吃喝 ( 2 )

A convenient way to explore Guangzhou was to join a local one-day tour. It covered most of the famous landmarks and scenery of the city.

We joined the day tour on our second day in Guangzhou.

 It brought us to the following places:

1. Baiyun hill. It is only about 300 meters above sea level and covers 28 hectors of forested land. It is the green lung of the city, a popular place for the city dwellers especially during weekends and holidays.

2. Huang Pu Military School. A first military cadet school of China co-founded by Sun Yet sun, Chiang Kai Sek. It is the equivalent of West Point of the US.

3. Yuexiu Park to see the symbol of Guangzhou city -  the five-goat monument. Guangzhou is also know as Goat City.

4. Museum of Mausoleum of Nanyue King zhao Wei  -  An ancient tomb of Nanyue Dynasty (Year 137- 122 BC)was discovered and a museum was built around the archeological site.   About 2000 pcs of exhibits were on display. Visitors are allowed to take photograph inside the museum.

5. Chen Ancestral Hall. Built in 1888, it showcased beautiful architectural design, wood carvings, stone carvings, ceramic sculpture, paintings ... 

6. Canton tower - nickname The Sexy Waist。

It cost RMB 188.00 (RM 100 ) inclusive of lunch, cable car, entrance fees ... It was really worth it !!!
