Exploring Chinese Civilization: Syrian vlogger's journey through Guangzhou's past and present

Global Stringer


Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province, was known as Canton in the old days. It lies at the estuary where the Pearl River flows into the South China Sea. Rated as a large port megacity, it plays an important role in China's foreign trade. Blessed with a favorable geographical position, the city has been one of the country's major maritime gateways to the world since ancient times. It served as a terminus for the maritime Silk Road, a historical sea trade route that began over 2,000 years ago.

Syrian vlogger Fajer Kseibi, who has lived in Guangzhou with her parents since childhood, calls this vibrant city her second home. Fluent in Chinese, she also holds a keen interest in China's traditional history and culture. Today, she is taking a city walk to show her top three favorite historical places in Guangzhou.
