Visiting the landmarks can highlight your exploration in a city, while there are two landmarks you can include on your getaway when you are in Guangzhou.
Five Rams Stone Sculpture
Located in Yuexiu Park, Five Rams Stone Sculpture makes Guangzhou a nickname of Yangcheng (City of Goats). It has been the city symbol and landmark for years. It’s said that in a famine ofZhou Dynasty, five gods descended to the world by five goats which held dropping ears of rice in their mouth. The gods bestowed the people with ears of rice and blessed the city out of starvation forever. And those goats stayed in the city after the gods left and turned into stone as protectors.
Five Rams Stone Sculpture has become the emblem of Guangzhou
Located in the center of Guangzhou city, Canton Tower, nicknamed Pretty Waist Lady, became a new symbol and landmark of Guangzhou as soon as it’s completed. It’s mainly used for sightseeing with four unique features. From the transverse Ferris wheel on the top by which one can have an overview of Guangzhou city, to the revolving restaurant that can hold 400 people for dinner, to the 4D cinema and gifts & souvenir shop, all of them are sitted on hundreds of meters high.
