Private Day Tour to Gulong Canyon Glass Bridge from Guangzhou

3 reviews
A network of spectacular walkways thread their way over the Gulong Gorge (Gulongxia). A cantilevered glass platform stands 236 feet (72 meters) above the gorge; a glass bridge runs 1,080 feet (329 meters) across the canyon. Experience them without the stress of queuing for tickets on this private guided tour, with door-to-door transfers direct from your hotel. Besides the walkways and a guided hike, your day includes a local lunch.

I was very excited to see this museum after a positive review in That's Guangzhou but I found it very underwhelming. There is a couple of halls dedicated to ceramics which we just weren't into. Highlights of course are the facade of the building and being able to walk into the tomb.

This is a very nice, modern museum that is located in the central Guangzhou area - a museum with an interesting history. According to Wikipedia, this museum houses a 2,000 year-old tomb of the Nanyue King, Zhao Mo in Guangzhou. This Tomb was discovered by accident in 1983 when a construction crew was getting the area ready to build a new hotel at this site. Five years later (1988), the Museum was opened at this site instead. The museum houses over 1,000 burial artifacts from the Tomb, and you can actually walk down (underground) to see where the actual original coffin chamber was located - interesting! The museum is somewhat large in size because there are just so many items found at this site including: Jade jewelry, gold and silver vessels, burial suit of King Zhao Mo and many more items of interest. Overall, I found the museum to be very interesting and worthwhile.

The museum has two parts . 1 st part is on bronze and ceramic . And the second portion is on the artefacts from the tomb of a King. The trip becomes more interesting with narrative given by museum staff in the evening . ( in Chinese ) . It is near the sun yat Sen monument.

An interesting place showcasing the history of the greater region before it became a part of China proper. Museum has many artefacts and is well-presented. The mausoleum on the grounds is simpler, but nonetheless, a good visit paired with the museum.
