Lingnan Impression Garden

Lingnan Impression Garden

As a local Cantonese, I usually keep my eyes open for scenic spots in and around Guangzhou, especially places steeped in traditional culture. As the saying goes from the Analects, "How glad we are, to welcome friends from afar".

Recently I discovered a place filled with numerous traditional alleys, Lingnan architecture, ancestral halls, folk residences and so on. Located in the Guangzhou Higher Education Mega Centre, the Lingnan Impression Garden(岭南印象园)embodies the essence of local culture. In only one day there, tourists can get a comprehensive view of ancient Lingnan folkways.

According to the introduction in the Plan, the objects under protection and conservation include physical and non-physical elements, i.e., the water grids that crisscross the Wanmu Orchard, the unique ancient features of the Lingnan-style water village, folk residences typified by the Oyster Shell House—an ancestral shrine, the Dragon Boat Culture and the Pak Tai (North God) Temple Culture.

Pearl River Night Cruise

Pearl River Night Cruise

The Pearl River is where Guangzhou's scenic spots are. Praises to the beauty of the Pearl River have been 'Red Heart of the Pearl Sea' and 'Night Moon over the Goose Pool', selected in 1962 as of the Eight Sights of Guangzhou, plus the 'Sunlight Reflection at Shimen' of the old Eight Sights of Guangzhou and the recently selected 'Clear Waves of the Pearl River' of the Eight Sights of Guangzhou.

The third largest river in China, the Pearl River measures 2,129 meters in length, with its name deriving from the Haizhu Rock (Sea Pearl Rock). When the thousand-meter long Pearl River went through Guangzhou City, a huge rock island in the center of the river was scoured time and again and became smooth and bright like a pearl, called 'Sea Pearl Rock', hence the name 'Pearl River' for the river with this rock.
