Bring my mum here since her sir name is Chen. It was fun and did my chinese name in the chop where u could only get from China and Taiwan and relatively cheap. Met some high up person (who I don't know) There was many bodyguards following him.

Beautiful historic building restored to its previous glory and more. Though the entrance fee is on the high side for tourists. Close to subway station.

This is a wonderful visit in Guangzhou. The site is a well restored and well kept family hall with about 20 rooms full of traditional crafts and arts from the region. The site is beautifully treed with wonderful outdoor and indoor sights. Lots of English translations to tell the visitor about the many varieties of ancient and beautiful crafts.
