It's a very large square, there's a mall with lots of restaurants, better visit at night. You can see beautiful skyscrapers with beautiful lights It's also the great spot to see Canton Tower

Very nice place to visit. Beautiful tall sky scrappers and more beautiful at night when the lights are switched on.

I walked to the square from the Parc Central Shopping Mall. After cutting through a residential area, and going through an underground walkway, I arrived to the north side of the square. The same underground walkway also leads to the extensive shopping area under the square, which is quite vibrant and popular. The Square is very impressive, with a multitude of high-rise financial office buildings, the Guangdong Museum, the Guangzhou Library and the Opera House. In the southern end of the Square, closer to the river, is the Canton Tower (and a mid-sized stadium to boot). Lining the square are trees and local plants, including an artificial lake and a coffee house in the middle of that lake. Chirping and other natural noises can be heard at dusk, piped in from the sound system surrounding the lake. The park is very well maintained and clean - it feels very spacious and is a good place to relax. As you walk around, you can find sculptures and other artsy signs and objects. Dusk is the best time to come to the Square, as you can see the transition of the lighting in the buildings and the Canton Tower. When it gets dark, a light show takes place in synch with the surrounding buildings and the Canton Tower. Under the square, and extending out of it, is a busy underground shopping, dining and entertainment center. If it gets too hot outside, you can head underground for some good A/C (and ice cream!). This feels like Hong Kong, but with more space, newer and richer. It is a model for Guangzhou's future.…

The Huacheng Square is really an amazing place to explore on a beautiful winter day. A lot of exciting buildings and iconic sights. Do explore when you have a chance.

This area, along the Pearl River, is made up of wide open spaces, with lovely modern architecture (e.g., library, opera house, Canton Tower). There is also a sprawling underground mall. Lovely to see it transition from day to night in the area.
