Guangzhou -- the Gateway to Southern China:
The White Swan Hotel (白天鵝大飯店) on Shamian Island is beautifully lit at night.
The Temples of Guangzhou -- where religion survived
One striking difference between northern and southern China is in the vibrancy of religious practice. While temples in the north are often either empty or quiet, they are full of life in southern cities like Guangzhou. This pagoda is located at the Bright Filial Piety Temple (光孝) and is over 1,000 years old..
