Beautiful Xiguan Style Reconstruction
Jun 2018
In our view a 'must-see' place for those who wish to gain a better understanding of the Cantonese culture and lifestyle. Re-constructed in the historic Liwan district, the Xiguan Mansion is probably the best example of traditional architecture and design in all of Guangzhou. Grey bricks, chunky wooden doors, rosewood furniture, stained glass Man-style windows and high ceilings are all characteristic design elements in this typical Cantonese upper-middle class house.
Not a difficult attraction to visit, well-worth the 10RMB for the entrance fee.

A Museum in Lychee Bay Park
Nov 2016 • Couples
This museum has another entry as Liwan Museum and its referenced in Lychee Bay Scenic Area.
We enjoyed out first visit so we took friends to see it. Like us, they were impressed by the Liwan Museum and Jiang GuangNai's Former Residence a few metres down the street.
If you're over 60 then show your passport for free entry otherwise it's 10 Yuan. Pick up a Chinese/English leaflet at the door. The house was built by Chen Lian Zhong who as a compradore (a Chinese manager) of HSBC. Walk slowly around and get a feel of this wonderful building. Look up at the marvellous wood work. This place oozes quality!
Next cross the road and enter Jiang's house. In my opinon not as nice, a little more like an office building. Lots of photos and personal nick-nacks but not much about how his and his family's daily life.
Note there are steep stairs in both houses.
A couple of hours well spent.

Old cultural re-creation
Aug 2015 • Friends
This is a re-creation of the Xiguan style of architecture, in the midst of an ancient area that is just walking up to the value of its history. The house is new but the pictures and write up give a fair amount of what life must have been. The use of local materials and wood carvings is a great way to showcase local prOduce and skill. If you are in the area and like to learn about cultures, take a peek.

longjin road is the center of old guangzhou culture.the building reminds with almost 100 years history.people still are living in their old house.since guangzhou was the only one port for trading so the essence of building is combination of estern & western.the highlight to of this street is to have a experience how old guangzhou live there.
