Also known as the Guangdong and Canton river, the Pearl River is the third largest river in China. It is called Pearl River, because it has a stone island resembling a huge pearl. A cruise along the Pearl River in Guangzhou City has become a must for tourists.

There are many boat cruises, dinner cruises, or just walk along the river. This is the place to be at night. It is magical and put a whole new light on this city...and FUN thing to do for evening adventures.
