Guangzhou is a city worth exploring

In the 1880s, Wesleyan missionary John Turner described Canton's Shamian Island as "a beautiful island, fronted with lawns and flower gardens, with the foreign consular and merchants' houses standing behind them, on either side of an avenue of banyan trees." 

Not a lot has changed on Shamian Island, which is a historic part of the city that is now known as Guangzhou. 

Now, China's third largest city has a turn to shine as shades of old Canton hide in the shadows of glittering Guangzhou.
