Visiting "Punyu" in Guangzhou

by gin77ger

Dear All

I would like to bring my elderly father to "Punyu"(pronounce in Cantonese) in Guangzhou as that is our ancestry hometown. We do not know any more relatives there since even my late grandfather had lived in Malaysia from young. However, I think my father would be very happy to visit Punyu and especially if we can go to the village of our hometown. My father is trying to find out the name of our village through some writings that he has kept from the old days. Our surname is Leong. Which is the most convenient and good hotel to stay if we are thinking of coming in mid October 2007? Would any kind forummer be able to provide more information about villages in Punyu if I can provide the name?

Many many thanks in advance.

Platterpuss is right, Punyu is now part of the greater Guangzhou. Many villages are now factories, real estates or highways so I hope you can pin down the exact village before going or you may be in for a big surprise.
If you do some web surfing you may be able to find sites that help overseas Chinese trace their roots. I came across one a few years ago that helped an American Chinese lady find her roots in Guangdong. Good luck.

Thank you very much, Platterpuss and Polartraveller. I will certainly need to find out much more before I bring my father over. Our village name is "Tang Xi" (in Mandarin) or "Tong Kai" (in Cantonese). According to my father, "Tang" is the one as in Tang Dynasty. "Kai (or Xi)" means mountain stream or small river.

Does anyone know where "Sei Yap" (Cantonese) is? Is it near Punyu? It is my late mother's hometown.

Many thanks again.

Pan Yu is in the news at the moment. It is where the latest bird flu in Guandong has been discovered.

Thank you very much, Sol. The information is very helpful. I have Googled it and found Tangxi in Jiangmen. The writing of Tangxi seems to be correct. Perhaps my father was mistaken that the village was at Panyu instead. Looks like Tangxi is now an industrial development zone. I am not sure if it is still worth visiting. :-)

Thanks again.

Dear All

Does anybody know anything about 唐溪村 from 廣州市增城區新塘鎮. Is this near Panyu or would the older people there consider themselves Panyu in ancestry?

Many thanks!

Travel Tips for Guangzhou

Ersha Dao

by Guantanamera

Ersha Dao is a large island in the Zhu Jiang, located on the east side of Guangzhou, near Dongshanhu Gongyuan... The island is not as well known as Shamian Dao, but it does have some attractions such as a very modern concert hall and art museum... Apart from that, the island is mostly taken up by large open fields, trees, and prestigous private housing communities... Shown here, a view from the Guangdong Museum of Art on Ersha Dao, looking across the Zhu Jiang...

Oasis of Green

by sifrim

It was the first park I have visisted in Guangzhou and I didn't regret. Very nice garden, lot of vegetation, flowers, small lakes, pavilions. Enchanting!
And, above all, you can have tee there. I had it, and it took one and half hours, admiring the lovely view and the rain, while enjoying an excellent tea.

Guangzhou

"Guangzhou"

Located at the tip of the Pearl River in the southern end of Mainland China, Guangzhou is also known as Huacheng (the Flower City) and Yangcheng (the Goat City). As one of the well-developed modern cities in China, it is the capital city of Guangdong Province (Canton) as well as a vital trading port. Today, it serves the major role as a gateway into the Mainland and has successfully attracted business investments from around the world. The Chinese Export Commodities Fair, an important half-yearly event, has been a major channel for Guangzhou to maintain trading ties with foreign merchants.

The central part of the city is occupied by several religious venues, such as the Huaisheng Mosque, which was among the first Muslim mosques built in China. The Temple of Six Banyan Trees, a Buddhist counterpart in the vicinity, has an interesting architectural style featuring a century-old octagonal pagoda. There are even traces of Western culture here as represented by the Sacred Heart Cathedral, a typical French construction built some 120 years ago.

The Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall and the Huanghua Gang Commemorative Park are places that you cannot miss, particularly if you are interested in the recent history of China. In the neighbourhood, the Yuexiu Park and Orchid Park are the ideal places for flower lovers. For some grand mountain views, outside the city border on top of the Baiyun Mountain, you can get an undisturbed view of the entire city, or in the Conghua Hot Springs Scenic Region, you can relax yourself in soothing hot springs. Elsewhere, the Shamian Island gives you a light European touch, while the Xiangjiang Wildlife World offers you a great escape to the wild.

"When it comes to eating, you must go to Guangzhou" is a saying that is often heard among Chinese people. With the variety and creativity in Cantonese cuisine, no one will be disappointed when dining out in Guangzhou. Similarly, when it comes to shopping, you will definitely find the trip very fruitful, as commodities from all provinces across the country are available here for your selection.
