The Legend of the Five Goats has it that once upon a time, five celestial beings in colorful robes, each riding a five-colored goat and bringing an ear of grain, arrived in Guangzhou. They gave the grain to the residents as a present, wishing the land free from famine forever. Hence Guangzhou is also known as Sui city (the Rice-Ear City), and Wuyang city (the Five Goat City).
The tour begins in Yuexiu Park, Guangzhou's largest public park, which features the usual green space but also houses a small city museum, remnants of the old city wall, a statue of the city's five founding rams, the 14th-century Zhenhai Tower and some man-made lakes. Take advantage and while away a few hours in this touted "ecological and cultural wonderland."
Zhenhai Tower was built in 1380. It is also named the five-storied tower because of its five-storied structure. In front of the tower are inscriptions from various dynasties, and on the right side are 12 ancient cannons. It was turned into the Guangzhou Municipal Museum in 1929, displaying the cultural relics of Guangzhou of different dynasties, with over 2000 years worth of history. In 1950, it changed its name to Guangzhou Museum.
After that, we will take a walk on Shang Xiajiu Road. It is located in the western part of Guangzhou (also called Xi Guan area). It is one of the oldest and most attractive places in Guangzhou, known for its hundreds of shops and ancient Cantonese-style architecture.
