Fine China

by Robert Michael Poole

Welcome to China’s historic window on the world. Once the country’s main trading port, GUANGZHOU now blends a historic core with some of the world’s flashiest skyscrapers.

UNLIKE ITS SISTERS, Shanghai and Beijing, China’s third city doesn’t conjure up the image of an iconic skyline, the Great Wall of China or the Forbidden City; but it does have beautiful architecture, and excellent food that’s famous worldwide. Chinese chefs, many hailing from Guangzhou, were the first modern Chinese to travel around the world.
