Travel To Asia: Guangzhou- Shamian Island Chapter

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain

Stop for a second and just take a moment to ask yourself this question, ” If you could go anywhere in the world, somewhere, anywhere, all expenses paid, no limit. Where would you go? What would you like to do?” Have you ever looked at a map and thought, ” What’s it like to live on the other side of the street? State? Country? World?” 

There are two things that I crave when I travel the world: one is to see beauty, the second to taste. These experiences are ones that are enveloped in emotions, moments, friends, and families that create memories we die cherishing. I want to cherish all that this world has to offer. Visit the wonders of our beautiful planet and the miracles that come from the people that live there.

Let me introduce to you the most tourist spot in Guangzhou unknown to the world. This paradise is a sharp contrast to the busy streets of China with foliage, French architecture and colonial ambiance. It’s a must-see for the world travel.

White Swan Hotel – Shamian Island, Guangzhou

The beautiful and unique sandbank of Shamian Island in the Liwan District of Guangzhou, Guangdong province China was divided into two concessions given to the French and British in the 19th century. An important port for Guangzhou for foreign trade, Shamian Island became a strategic point of business and defense.

Now the stone mansions that once  housed the first trading companies from
Britain, the United States, France, Holland, Italy, Germany, Portugal, and Japan have been maintained along the waterfront. White Swan Hotel is located at the edge of Shamian Island right along the infamous Pearl River.

My favorite hotel in #China has to be the #whiteswanhotel in #guangzhou on the #shamianisland! It’s literally like nothing I have ever seen. Overlooking the Pearl River, this gem serves up the BEST fine dining, activities, and decor for great reception and photos. Hello wedding spot! 🌸🐲 Shamian is a sandbank island in the Liwan District of Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China. The island's name literally means "sandy surface" in Chinese. The territory was divided into two concessions given to France and the United Kingdom by the Qing government in the 19th century. To this day the buildings have maintained their structure to pay homage to the French culture. See all my photos and videos on the island on my pinned highlights stories!
