Guangzhou Things to Do: 295 reviews and 580 photos
Here is a photo of myself at the vast Yuexiu Gongyuan, a large park in central Guangzhou, with the tall Sun Yatsen Monument visible in the distance. This obelisk was built in 1929, four years after Sun's death, and is made from granite and marble blocks. Sun Yatsen is revered as the man who overthrew the Qing Dynasty and removed the emperors, paving the way for a democratic China that was never fully realized... Bertolucci's classic film "The Last Emperor", deals with these events...
Directions: In Yuexiu Gongyuan.
