The tour begins with Chen Clan Temple. It is also called Chen Family Academy, which was built in 1890-1894. Chen Clan Temple used to be a private house for Chen family, where people from Chen family prayed to their ancestors. Now it is also known as the "Guang Dong Local Arts Museum," where you can enjoy amazing carvings, like wood carvings, ivory carvings, brick carvings, etc.

Next stop is the Mausoleum of Nanyue King. Guangzhou boasts a long history of 2,213 years. The Nanyue Royal Tomb, dating back to about 2000 years, reveals the very outset and depth of this history. The Nanyue Royal Tomb lies at the Xianggang Hill in north-western downtown. The original slope from the hilltop leads you downwards through a stone gate into the 20-meter underground tomb, as if you were descending into the depth of history. The 100-square meter complex has a systematic layout, made up of some 750 grit-stone pieces and divided into 7 chambers for different functions in the front and rear sections. Rough colorful cloud paintings are found on the walls and ceiling of the front chamber while remains of bone ashes, clothes, arrow tips and life items are shown in all chambers.

After lunch, we are going to visit the Six Banyan Temple, which was built in 537. It is a renowned Buddhist cultural site. The temple enshrines three large Buddhist statues - the biggest copper Buddhist statues existing in Guangdong Province. The thousand-Buddha copper pillar cast in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) is kept on the top story of the pagoda. The 184-feet pagoda appears to have nine stories. Inside, however, there are 17 levels. Because of the colorful exterior carvings, it is popularly known as the Flower Pagoda.

The last visit is Shamian Island. Located on the north bank of the Pearl River's White Goose Pool, Shaman is an oval islet, covering a tiny area of 0.3 square meters. Thanks to the many buildings of classic Western design on the island, it has recently been designated as a key protected relic of the state, and is called "Ninth Sight of Guangzhou."
