Guangzhou: Pearl River Night River Cruise

The night river cruise is stated often in tour guides. So what so special about this pearl river, in the past when air and land transport are not so developed, water transport is one of the most important transportation means.

A lot of important history of Guangzhou involved Pearl river. The most famous or important Jetty along Pearl river is the Tian Zhi Ma Tou where famous People of Guangzhou board their ship to other part of China or overseas.

As Guangzhou develops, Buildings spurs up along the 2 shores and decorations at night becomes a unique scene along the river. Efforts has been done to beautify the night scene along the river especially at the swam lake which is the interception of 2 rivers at the U-turn point of the cruise.

Our cruise stated just outside the North Gate of Sun-Yat-San University and it will move towards the western direction and U-turn at the intersection of 2 rivers and back to the SYSU Jetty
