    Great Buddha Temple was rebuilt relatively recently-in 2006, and the story of its creation dates back to the beginning of the 12th century. The temple is the subject of numerous legends: for example, according to a legend, Kublai Khan was born here, and the last emperor of the Song dynasty became a monk in the temple at the time of linking.

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
