  • A nice museum to visit while in Guangzhou. I love learning about history and art. Bring your passport to gain entry.  more »
  • Not my kind of place because I dont know how to appreciate history, but the antique pieces in this site is worth a view even for me.  more »
  • This House of the Chen clan is a masterpiece of architecture of the region in its proportions and especially its rich decoration of the roofs, showing scenes of gods or deities. The best is to go very early, from the opening (8.30) so be sure to not be too bothered by the many visitors.
