Thanks for sub-tropical climate, Guangzhou is home to a wide range of exotic fruits, from dragon fruit to durian. Lychees however, are particularly popular in the Cantonese capital so a popular attraction was named after this sweet fruit – Litchi Bay. Situated in the Pantang region, the west of Liwan district of Guangzhou, Litchi Bay is the hinterland of dazzling Pearl River, where tourists get the great enjoyment of cuisine, architecture and local activities.
Litchi Bay was erected to be a summer resort for royal families, government officials and wealthy merchants in the early 206 AD (Han Dynasty), and then it had become “Top Resort of Linnan” – one of the eight most popular beautiful attraction of Guangzhou. This scenic area is peppered with various bridges joining park, walkways, pavilions and Guangzhou’s trademark banyan trees, which make Lychee Bay a great destination for any trip any time of the year.
There are many historical relics and significant buildings in Litchi Bay, in which the Wenta Pavillion, Liangjia Ancestral Temple, Xiguan Houses, Renwei Temple are the must-see. Besides that, Guangzhou has a lure of cuisine to tourists. Foreigners say “All delicious food is in Guangzhou”, the local people say, “Delicacies are at Xiguan of the city”. Its culinary delights are exquisite snacks. It is said that only when you take a bit that will you know how delicious it is.
Green water flows in curved river way, while red lychee shining brightly on both sides – so a boat trip along the river will make your trip more memorable. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city, Litchi Bay awaits you!
