In town on business and Chinese colleagues accompanied me. Nice place to learn some Chinese history and culture. Definitely recommend going with someone who speaks and reads the language as they explained the significance of some of the displays. They also negotiated a good price on some souvenirs for me!

The park demonstrates the worst elements of the Disneyfication of history. Not worth the effort and money.

It is difficult to believe that any of the positive reviews are from normal people. It costs 60 RMB to enter a place that is simply a crowded, outdoor shopping mall selling nothing you can't buy in other places in Guangzhou. There is a stage show with some young people jumping around like chickens, the standard South China attraction, and... More

We found this park a bit lacking, could it be because we arrived in the afternoon, and saw BIG groups of school kids leaving the park, so perhaps the entertainment section was over? We did wander around and bought some food to sample, but overall, it was just not that entertaining. So unless you are looking for something to do... More

The village was quiet far from yuexiu district but on the way to that area was a fascinating view of Guangzhou.You can see Canton tower,Pearl river,Cultural center,University city and many more. It is a different sight for us from a busy urban in Guangzhou to this village that has the old structures and still have those old stuffs in the... More

We spent a day out from Guangzhou visiting the University Campus and marvelled at the construction of all the major teaching institutions. We drove by this garden by chance and found that the developer has done a good job to recreate life in this part of China 60 to 100 years ago. They have significant investment in the buidlings and...

Guangdong has many great old villages with history, quality architecture, art, food and culture. Lingnan Impression is a copy of one of those villages, minus all of the good stuff. It is a poor, shoddy copy filled with expensive "arts and crafts" and crappy food. For 45 RMB, there really was very little to do. The acrobatics and puppet shows... More

This was a fine day that my friend, who lives in Guangzhou, suggested we should do. There is a lot to do and see. First we witnessed a mock wedding ceremony in which the bride remained covered until after the ceremony. Well done re-creation with much approval from the onlookers. Then we watched a historical operatic and acrobatic version of... More

If you have an interest in Guangzhou and its culture beyond food and shopping, you will find this a worthwhile attraction. Despite being out of the way, the subway and a walk/motorbike ride will get you there. The park resembles an old town, with beautiful traditional buildings, a lake with a shadow puppet pavillion and a main street full of... More

Today my two daughters, 9 and 10, and I joined a group of foreigners going to Lingnan Impressions Park, located not far from the Da Xue Cheng South Metro stop exit B off line 4.
