There are ancient trees on Shamian Island. On both sides of the Garden Avenue, there are more than 150 ancient European buildings with their own characteristics, highlighting the baroque and neo-classical styles of European architecture in the past, or graceful and dynamic.
When I went to the "White Swan Hotel" 30 years ago, I once visited Shamian, and the impression is not too deep. This time I visited Shamian, and I was really impressed. The European-style architecture was very impressive. "Shamian", cross the sky bridge to "Xiaxia Ninth Street".
Shamian Island is a small area (just 900 meters long) in the Liwan District of Guangzhou. In the 19th century, after China's military defeat against the British Empire, the Qing Dynasty was forced to cede it as a concession to France and the United Kingdom, which brought military and commercial offices to the island. Today it is one of the most curious areas from Guangzhou, with a mix of European and Chinese architecture and a majority of pedestrian areas. It has a French and an English church, several consulates, a school, several statues and the Shamian Park.
