Sam's Exotic Travels to Exotic Guangzhou - China's Oldest Western Port

Guangzhou (known as Canton to the west) is one of China's most historic cities: its only port open to the west until the 1850's; home of most of Chinese who immigrated to America in the 1800's; and the first home of both the Nationalist and Communist parties in the early 20th century.

Visit included Shamian Island, The Bund, Qingping Shichang, Chen Family Temple, Sun Yetsen Memorial, Sun Zhongshan Jiniantang, Chenjia Si and the Pearl River
