Temple of the Six Banyan Trees

A must-see attraction in Guangzhou is the impressive Temple of the Six Banyan Trees. This ancient Buddhist temple was built around the year 537, during the Liang Dynasty, and still attracts many local and foreign visitors. One of the temple's best features is the magnificent statue of Kuan Yin. The nearby six-story pagoda is a distinctive landmark, and the view from the top is even more spectacular.

Make sure you exchange your leftover Yuan before returning home because this currency can be exchanged only within China's borders. Travellers cheques, preferably in US Dollars, and foreign cash can be exchanged in cities at the Bank of China. Banks are closed weekends.
