A multi-faceted dreamscape of stories woven into pristine nature, Yuexiu Park is a breathtaking Guangzhou escape that still brims with the city’s infectious vibrancy and quaint adventures.
A Storybook Hideaway
Guangzhou has many diverse allurements to earn its title of ‘The City of Dreams’, from the fantastical Chimelong Paradise that hosts white tigers, orangutans, and kangaroos along with jungle-clad water slides, stomach-dropping rollercoasters, and nostalgic carnival rides to the ethereal White Cloud Mountain and Moon Lake Reservoir. If you’re taking a break between chasing these iconic attractions, Yuexiu Park is ideal for a poetic heritage-rich ramble, with its classic Chinese-style architecture and blissful meandering avenues.
This pocket of lush green and glistening blue immersed in Guangzhou’s jewel-toned cityscape is also home to the Guangzhou Museum found within the giant red sandstone tower with iridescent green tiles, built by an emperor as a fortification against a legendary dragon. This ancient monument also affords one of the most majestic views of mountains and seascape from its dizzying pinnacle.
From browsing through exquisite ancient art forms at the park’s Art Museum and witnessing the historic clay cannons used in the Second Opium War to a miniature amusement park, swimming pool, bowling alley, and basketball court, there’s plenty to get your mind intrigued and blood pumping at Yuexiu. If you’re questing for Haizhu district serviced apartments proffering premier access to diverse regional enticements, venture no further than the likes of Somerset Haizhu Centre Guangzhou.
Guangzhou Wholesale Market
After a day of fun-filled tranquility in the largest city park, it’s only fitting to stop at Guangzhou’s largest wholesale market and bargain for ‘oriental jeans’, imported clothing labels, stylish ankle boots, branded bags, and top-quality beauty products.
