Cultural Attractions near the Tianhe District
A visit to Guangzhou doesn’t have to be all work, work, work. Visit the sprawling Guangdong Museum of Art, which showcases important Cantonese artists of the last century, or see what’s on at the Xinghai Concert Hall. Head to the remarkable Canton Tower to enjoy magnificent views of the city from its observation deck at nearly 1500 feet. See a traditional Chinese opera in the stunning Guangzhou Opera House, designed like a pair of entwined glass-and-chrome pebbles, and southern China's largest performance space.
Eating in Guangzhou
Culture and business aside, another big draw to Guangzhou is its food. Formerly known as Canton, it’s the ancient home of Cantonese cuisine and more recently, the birthplace of dim sum, or yum cha as it’s known locally. While Tianhe district has some of the region’s most sophisticated fine-dining restaurants, why not experience the more traditional family-run establishments in Panxi or Shipai Village, the city’s largest urban estate.
