Historical Rare Find at the back of a training camp
Dec 2016 • Friends
Very hard to find, but fascinating. Get off at the Higher Education Center North and follow the directions I wrote in Chinese below by hiring a motorcycle/taxi.

It was preserved by the Guangzhou government in 2002 as a protected heritage site and shows signs of upkeep, but the natural shrubbery is encroaching on the site.

Many tombs of foreign merchants, sailors, missionaries, etc who perished in Canton shortly after or around the time of the Opium War and when Guangzhou became the first open port in China.

去这里: 在大学城北下地铁,问摩托车司机载你到四季农庄(金鹰扩展培训基地)(安新街168号). 外国人墓在后面

Nearby here are also separate cluster of Persian tombs but in a more ‘natural’ state and even less accessible. It is within the CSSC Guangzhou Huangpu Shipping Company Shipyard which can be entered next to the Eastern Expedition Martyr memorial. 在黄埔造船厂(东征烈士纪念园旁边)的门口可以求保安让你进去上山看波斯墓以及波斯楼
