Do you want to travel back in time to the Republic of China (1912-1949) and see Shanghai at night?
Now, you are welcome to visit Fashion Tianhe in Guangzhou to take the time machine to go back to the old Shanghai, where all the singing and dancing, dazzling lights and wine, or sing-song girls and gentlemen in the Paramount Hotel have been revived.
Here you will have the illusion of actually being back in the old days with authentic sections featuring different themes, namely, Shanghai at Night, Fantasyland and Lingnan Flavor.
You can start your journey with Shanghai at Night where the old Shanghai elements such as neon lights, European-style buildings, double-decker trams, telegraph poles, old-style posters and gramophones can be found everywhere. In this neighborhood, you can take selfies with the waxworks of figures and celebrities from the Republic of China.
Visitors can also take the double-decker trams to tour around the whole neighborhood for free.
Apart from the Shanghai at Night section, there is the Lingnan Section with which people living in Guangzhou are most familiar with.
If you want to further appreciate the charm of Lingnan culture, you can come to Xunma and Qilu streets. There you may encounter at each corner of the two streets rooster olives, paper-cuts, shadow plays and other elements with distinctive Lingnan features.
