Guangzhou - an ancient but dynamic city in China
Home to more than 12 million people, the city’s humid subtropical climate is greatly influenced by the Asian monsoon. With year-round flowers and evergreen plants, Guangzhou has been affectionately called the ‘Flower City’ since ancient times.
With an over 2,200-year history, Guangzhou is rich in antiquity, unique customs and deep cultural deposits. Historically, it is both the start of the Maritime Silk Road and the center of Lingnan Culture.
An ancient but dynamic city, Guangzhou impresses visitors with both its vivid modern ambience and unique indigenous culture. Reflecting the charm of a multicultural metropolis, the city’s cultural influences can be seen in all aspects of its social life, including diet, lifestyle, architecture, commerce, language, music, art, customs and entertainment.
