The Sacred Heart Cathedral is quite a unique place to visit in Guangzhou. The building is quite iconic and stands out from the rest of the area. You can also visit the Cathedral from inside, and there are specific times to visit. So plan ahead.

We were there before noon. There were people there, but not overwhelmingly so. Of course we went in mid-April and a non Catholic holiday, so that might be a factor.
