Guangzhou Yongqing Fang (永庆坊) is located in the center of Guangzhou old town, Ening Road District. The Ening road used to be the economic center of southern China when the port open during the Qing Dynasty.
Enning Road (恩宁路), once the economic core area of Liwan District, carries the precious memories of many Guangzhouers. After 1950s, the Road has experienced a huge recession and lost its prosperity. Lucky enough, the main street is redeveloped as a cultural street and becomes the landmark of Guangzhou again currently.
After the renovation, you can now find a creative neighborhood composed of several unique alleys — Yongqing Fang, which originates from the old Yongqing Street, No. 99 of Enning Road. If you slowly dig into the lanes, you will find some creative locales that will render you a "time-traversing" experience.
Here, you can find Lee's holographs and records of practicing martial arts. The posters and magazines of Lee's serial movies, his memorial bronze statue and family stories will give you a full picture of how Lee was shaped into the man he became.
Wandering to the end of Yong Qing Fang, you will see a building that looks like a palace — the Cantonese Opera Museum. It's a landscape-style museum featuring Lingnan architecture style and water township characteristics.
It took more than three years to construct this 20,000-square meter structure. In 2016, it won the most honorable award of the construction industry in China — the Luban Award for Chinese Architectural Engineering.
The collections inside are abundant as well, including varied costumes and a 1907 map of Guangzhou. What's more, you can appreciate classic Cantonese operas sung in different tones here.
