Also known as the Guangdong and Canton river, the Pearl River is the third largest river in China. It is called Pearl River, because it has a stone island resembling a huge pearl. A cruise along the Pearl River in Guangzhou City has become a must for tourists.

Took the cruise twice. First time it was raining so we mostly stayed inside and enjoyed the food and entertainment. The second time we took lots of pictures as the weather was better. Took our friends back with us the second time.

Extremely pretty river day or night; but in the evening, the buildings put on light shows. Go early and have a meal in the cafes near where the boats leave. Some tours offer a meal during the cruise.
