City Intro

Guangzhou is the capital city of Guangdong province and also a regional center in south China. Guangzhou is a cultural city with a history of more than 2000 years. In the 9th century BC, it was called "Chu Ting" . As early as 226 A.D., Sun Quan -king of the Kingdom of Wu in the period of the Three Kingdoms (220-280) divided Jiaozhou District into two administrative regions, one was still named Jiaozhou and the other Guanghzou, hence name "Guangzhou". A legend has it that in ancient times five celestials riding on five rams holding ears of paddy rice in their months descended on to Guangzhou and gave the rice to the local residents and then they left behind the five rams that afterwards turned into stones. As a result, Guangzhou was also named the City of Ram, City of Ears. It is also called the City of Flowers as flowers can be seen all year round. In addition, Guangzhou is well known for its flowers and potted landscape, such as salisb (michealia), sweet hibiscus, banana-shrub jasmine, gladiolus, chrysanthemum, kumquat, among others.
