Design and Architecture

As architecture is said to be the business card of a city, people can know and appreciate the city through the landmark architectures there.

Visitors can feel the heavy and strong ancient cultural flavor from the great traditional buildings with a history of three thousand years in Guangzhou, such as Nanyue King Tomb, Zhenhai Tower, Xiguan Arcade, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. These all mix happily with other modern brand new buildings such as the Guangzhou Tower, West Tower, New Museum of Guangdong Province, Guangzhou Opera House, Second Guangzhou Children's Palace, Guangzhou Library, Pazhou International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Baiyun International Airport, and the Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center.
