Great place for people who want to relax. Great also if you are interested in museums~ Not recommended for your "typical" teenager/action orientated adult since this will be really boring for you.

Worth a visit. Entrance fee was RMB10. Metro station is just outside of this place. Nice architecture especially the rooftop.

Very cheap entrance fee, comparing to other tourist attractions, but a lot of tourists inside, of course. The building is beautiful itself, but also exhibitions of traditional art and craft inside the rooms were very interesting. Totally worth a visit.

The roof hand sculpture of Chen Clan Ancestral are really amazing, the day we went there is a sunny day, the backyard is quiet,a good spot to relax and enjoy the Lingnan culture.

A step back into an older time, complete with many elderly Chinese playing mahjong in the courtyards and beautiful paintings and carvings on the walls

This is a fantastic place to visit in Guangzhou. The details in the architecture are amazing and the bonsai inside are a highlight. There is an Ivory and Camel Bone retail outlet which is as equally disturbing as it is interesting.
