    The second tallest TV tower in the world. Built at the beginning of the 21st century. The height of the TV tower is 600 meters. Up to a height of 450 meters, the tower was erected in the form of a combination of a hyperboloid bearing mesh shell and a central core. The hyperboloid design of the mesh shell of the Guangzhou TV tower corresponds to the 1899 patent of the Russian engineer V. G. Shukhov.

    It was originally a space to prepare students for the Confucian imperial exams, built by two overseas Chinese in America who returned to Guangzhou. The Chen Clan Ancestral Hall (also known as the Chen Clan Academy, for those whose last name is Chen), which now houses the Guangdong Folk Art Museum, is a great stop on your tour of Guangzhou with its history and architecture. The Chen Clan Ancestral Hall was founded by two Chinese Americans who wanted the Chen family students to have an academy in Guangzhou as they prepared for their Confucian imperial exams. It was built shortly before the end of the Qing era between 1890 and 1894, when two founders named Chen, Chen Ruinan and Chen Zhaonan enlisted support from all over Guangdong.

    Apparently one of the best in China and I can see why. Big enclosures, rare animals and lots of information on species and history. We spent most time with the koalas, pandas and tigers and spent nearly 6 hours there. Longest I've ever stayed in a zoo. Easy to get to by Didi. Only annoying thing was loud music (very Chinese and they promote merchandise everywhere) which must be somewhat disturbing also to the animals. Nite we were there during CNY so that was maybe the reason. All in all, great experience and worth the 350RMB price tag

    Located about 8km away from downtown is the Shamian island. This place is a cluster of colonial buildings and the area served as a cluster for embassies and also a maritime in the early 1900s.

    It is now converted into an artsy place with cafes and bistros. Photo buffs will visit, and newly weds come to have their bridal photos taken.
