Then go to the next site--Five-Ram Sculpture, one of the most famous structures in Guangzhou. It has become the emblem of the city. Legend has it that more than 2,000 years ago, the city was a barren land with people who were suffering from famine. One day five immortals in five-color garments ride on five rams, playing their legendary music. The rams held sheaves of rice in their mouths. The immortals left the sheaves of rice for the local people, gave blessings to the city and left. The rams turned into stone and the city became a rich and populous place.

Continue to another symbolic attraction in Guangzhou - the Zhenhai Tower, Five Stories Pagoda, also known as Guangzhou Museum. When reach the Ming-era Zhenhai Tower, head to the Guangzhou Museum which housing nearly a thousand pictures, data and other exhibits on history of the city's history.

There are 19 buildings in the traditional Lingnan style, all featuring exquisite carvings, statues and paintings, and decorated with ornate scrollwork throughout.

Go to the last site--- Shamian Island, an elliptic sandbank island in the Liwan District of Guangzhou city. The island's name literally means "sandy surface" in Chinese. Surrounded by water, it is just like a giant ship mooring alongside the wharf.The Island has great historic significance. From the Song and the Qing Dynasty, it served as an important port for Guangzhou's foreign trade. Then it became a strategic point for city defense during the second Opium Wars (1856-1860).

Shamian is a good place for a stroll. As it is just 900m long from east to west and 300m from south to north, it showcases a different atmosphere and pace of living. Problems such as traffic jams and exhaust gas pollution don't exist here. Now partly reserved for pedestrians, its broad boulevards are like long garden.
