    Museum of light and modern. Located in the heart of the city, entrance is free on presentation of a passport. The recommended visiting time is about 3:00. Several rooms in the Museum: life in ancient China, which had furniture and utensils. Very entertaining section. Then the flora and fauna of the province, presented an interesting denizens layouts an unusual idea. The most interesting thing for me personally, this is an exhibition of precious and semiprecious stones. They Captivate with their beauty and are difficult to break away. Take the time to visit the Museum is definitely worth it.

    So impressive. Great items on display and it's FREE! I spent 4 hours here. Bring your passport for admission.

    In a huge building there was only one good exhibit, so a typically not-so-good Chinese museum. Gotta have your passport on you to enter if you're a foreigner, not really worth the trouble.

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.
