Even the ancient town is a bit outside of Guangzhou, it’s worth spending 45 minutes by car to get there and experience the original Chinese culture and buildings.

Love the views and food. Great place for a half-day visit. Lots of local tourists, including children taking an art class. Personally, I was thrilled to discover the origin of my surname at one of the halls.

We went there on a rainy weeknight so the town was pretty quite. Nevertheless, it was amazing how the town was well preserved with its stone pavewalks, oyster shell walls and alleys with real people living in the houses. Can understand why many would love this place. Unfortunately we could only walk and missed the opportunity to learn more about the history of the various buildings and folks living there. Would need to come back again next time.

So very pleased to find this "ancient village". Easy to access, having different gates. The map provided gives you a great layout of the place. A very pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere whilst walking along the narrow streets, stopping to admire the historical past and learning about traditions. There are an abundance of shops and eateries and two beautiful shaded squares where one can sit and people watch. Spent 5 hours here and I will definitely go back again. It is a free entry; however, if you want to go into the 4 "halls" you need to have a ticket.

You can’t see much while walking down the narrow streets of Shawan but it is very good to replace crazy GZ with ancient village for just a couple of hours. Oyster shell house was a really cool thing to see (I have see one more in Xiaozhou village). I didn’t have a local to explain to me the importance of this place but I guess this is how ancient Chinese used to live.

I most enjoyed walking on the narrow side street, many of which have small shops selling a variety of goods. The oyster shell buildings were the most awesome for me to view. Well worth a visit, but can take 45 minutes or loner to get to if using a combination of subways and bus.

It was a trip for CantonFair, and some factories visit for business. so I add half a day visit to this old town. it is about an hour and half form town. I like the graceful surrounding. Is like in movie town. I learn the unique construction and purpose of Oyster wall. it actually have the functions of fire prevention, pest control. there is also a tradition soft bean curd dessert. come across a small shop in one of the small lane, and tried their "Apple Banana " which is short and fat. taste between apple and banana.

Shawan is situated in Panyu district of Guangzhou and is very close to Shun De Foshan, One can see the ancient temples, squares, houses and how they used to live, is a place to visit f you like to go back in the past. Do not expect any adventurous ride.

Visit to the Shawan Ancient Town of Panyu was nice since the weather was rather warm. So we ended up exploring this place fairly easily. A nice way to spend half a day.
