I most enjoyed walking on the narrow side street, many of which have small shops selling a variety of goods. The oyster shell buildings were the most awesome for me to view. Well worth a visit, but can take 45 minutes or loner to get...More

Visit to the Shawan Ancient Town of Panyu was nice since the weather was rather warm. So we ended up exploring this place fairly easily. A nice way to spend half a day.

This is a somewhat touristy area - lots of local shops and food places to browse. Many of the food places offer samples as you walk by. Area is very clean and safe and a great place to soak in the atmosphere.

We've been back to Shawan Ancient Town a number of times now and it's a nice afternoon out, particularly if you live in GZ and have friends or family over visiting. I'm not sure how much of the town is 'ancient' but it's atmospheric enough...More
