The Basics

Explore the development of Guangzhou, and changes in cultures and customs, through the exhibits in Zhenhai Tower, which are arranged in rough chronological order from bottom to top. Find a model of ancient Guangzhou on the first floor and relics of the different ages and dynasties, from Neolithic to the Qing Dynasty and post–Opium War era, on floors two through five. Special exhibitions are held from time to time in the eastern part of the tower. In front of the tower stand two sandstone lions, 12 ancient cannons, and a number of historic stone tablets.

A number of sightseeing tours include a stop at Yuexiu Park and Zhenhai Tower, in addition to other top city sites, such as Six Banyan Temple, Chen Clan Ancestral Hall–Folk Craft Museum, or Shamian Island.

Amazing guide!!!
This guide has an amazing knowledge database, and I could tell that he really cared about his job. I wish, I would know his name---was it Mark? However, this kind of guides are hard to find in China--speaking from experience. This tour takes you to all the places that it mentions, and they are beautiful! I really loved Guangzhou after having this tour! If you have one day in this city--this is a good price for a really good value that you are getting.
