銆怗eneral Introduction銆

Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong Province, is the province's political, economic and cultural center. Situated in southern Guangdong and northern Pearl River Delta, adjacent to South China Sea and in close proximity to Hong Kong and Macau, Guangzhou is a regional central municipality in South China and the southern gateway of the country.

Covering a total area of 7,434.4 square kilometers, Guangzhou administers 10 districts including Yuexiu, Haizhu, Liwan, Tianhe, Baiyun, Huangpu, Huadu, Panyu, Nansha and Luogang plus Conghua and Zengcheng, two county-level cities, with a total of 10.18 million residents.

銆怘istory銆

Guangzhou is a well-renowned cultural city with a history of over 2,000 years. As early as the 9th century BC, the local Baiyue people had started their contacts with the people of Chu Kingdom living in the Yangtze River area. Guangzhou was called Chu Ting then, which is the earliest known name of this city. In 214 BC, the 33rd year of the first Emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC), Nanhai Prefecture was established with its official residence located in Panyu (present Guangzhou) after Lingnan was unified. In 226, Sun Quan, king of the Kingdom of Wu in the Period of the Three Kingdoms (220-280), divided Jiaozhou Prefecture into two administrative regions -Jiaozhou and Guangzhou- aiming to facilitate his rule, giving birth to the present name Guangzhou. In 1921, Guangzhou became the official name of the city when the Guangzhou Municipal Council was founded. Guangzhou is also known as the City of Rams. As the legend has it, in ancient times five immortals holding ears of paddy rice descended in Guangzhou on five rams together with five pieces of auspicious cloud from South China Sea. They gave the ears to the local residents with their best wishes for bumper harvest and to become well-off forever. Then they left behind the five rams which eventually turned into stone statues. Guangzhou had developed into a prosperous place as early as in the Qin and Han Dynasty (206 BC-220). As the starting port of the ancient Maritime Silk Road during the Han and Tang Dynasty (618-907), Guangzhou was China's first trading port open to foreigners. It is also the starting point of China's contemporary and modern revolution.
