There are two ways for a man to travel a city. With the locals, or as a tourist. The latter route usually follows a travel guide with a list of top 10 things to do in Guangzhou.
October 2015, alongside the South African delegation group that was visiting China, we tried the tourist route. To unpack the history of the province we started off at the Guandong Museum, second on our list was the pen-shaped canton tower, also renowned for being the third highest tower in the world. We then admired captivating views of the city skyline, traversing on the Pearl River night cruise (I highly recommend this cruise).
