The evening cruise on the Pearl River is one of the tourist highlights in Guangzhou. The beauty of the Pearl River at night can be compared with that of Hong Kong’s Victoria Park. The cruise section from the White Goose Pool to Guangzhou Bridge is the highlight of the Pearl River cruise. Scenery along this part is so fascinating, with jade-coloured water, coloured lights on shore. The Pearl River in Guangzhou City is picturesque, adorned by charming views along the river. A cruise along the Pearl River in Guangzhou City has become a must for visitors to Guangzhou. Whether you choose a daytime or an evening cruise, it will be a highlight of your trip.
People can also find historic and artistic buildings in Guangzhou including the Huangpu Military Academy (the first military academy in Chinese history), the Xinghai Concert Hall (which boasts an unusual elegant appearance), the Historic Site in Shamian island (which includes hundreds of buildings in different architectural styles), and Tianzi Dock (which was used for greeting officials hundreds of years ago).
The Pearl River is like a ribbon that connects the historical sites and beautiful scenery along the river and shows people both the modern culture and the historical legacy of Guangzhou City.
|Located on the bank of the Pearl River south of the booming Beijing Road, Tianzhi Dock came into being during the Yongzheng Reign of the Qing Dynasty (1723-1735), enjoying over 270 overs of history. The dock only served officials at the beginning, and private vessels were forbidden from taking up a berth here, so it was named the Tianzi Dock, meaning the No.1 Dock. Lin Tse-hsu, a high official sent by the emperor to Guangdong to halt the importation of opium, went ashore here. In Apr. 1912, Sun Yat-sen quitted his job as Provisional President in order to reach the target of achieving “Unification of South and North and the Family of all Nationalities.” On Apr 25, 1912, he returned to Guangzhou after passing by Shanghai and Fuzhou, and was warmly welcomed by the people of Guangzhou.|
