China Trip 2017 - Guangzhou # 4 - Cruising along Pearl River

The last itinerary for my 5-day trip to Southern China was a cruise along the famous Pearl River or affectionately known as 'Chu Kong' to the older generations.  It was the third longest river in China and I visited the huge river earlier at Zhuhai where I took a few pictures along the banks. Well, this time, we were taken to night cruise along the Pearl River to enjoy the night scenery of Guangzhou. I was very amazed by how developed the city was as there were beautifully designed high-rise buildings along both sides of the river. 

A view of one of the modern cruise ship 

Inside the cruise, it was fully carpet with free drinks served as well as free shows and an auction event of calligraphy arts.
Picturesque view of high rise office buildings while cruising

They seems purposely changing the colors of the lights 

Another view of the river 

Passing along the beautifully lit up Haiyin Bridge

The Canton Tower, where the cruise move nearer and nearer to it until we got a good view of it. The colors of the tower kept changing to give us a nice show while the cruise stand still for a while nearest to the tower. I even saw the lift speeding up to the higher levels.

The amazing Liede bridge, with the oval shape supporter that make it unique. We were actually cruising under both bridges and we seems so near to the 'ceiling' below the bridge while passing by.

It was really great to be able to enjoy the cruise and night scenery. 
After the cruise, it's time to say good-bye to Guangzhou as our tour bus headed for the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. Our flight was at 3am and we waited a while at the airport.

Getting ready to go home, directly back to JB.

Snapping pics around the airport

It's kinda quiet at those hours
Overall, it was a great trip especially my ancestors hailed from this part of the world and I thought 5 days were quite short and how nice if the trip can be 7 or 8 days like my previous year-end trips.  The tour group was also a small one which makes it less complicated as most of the folks there were a friendly lot!

Pix for a souvenir!
We reached Senai International Airport around 6am+ . Will be looking forward to my next vacation!


  1. The name Pearl River makes me think of soy sauce and canned food from China. :D

  2. A great river cruise with the magnificent and picturesque of the high rise buildings. Amazed by the pictures on the buildings.

  3. I love your pictures across the cruise! This seems to be a very nice trip! <3

  4. I had seen such impressive lighted buildings in China but yours are the best lah! High time I must visit Guangzhou soon and walk your trails. Good to know that your whole family enjoyed so much in a smaller tour group.

    I dislike all the after midnight flights which are very tiring to stay awake.

  5. Normally when I go for these boat cruise, I would end up sleeping in it. Maybe due to tiredness cos whole day touring here and there... now at my age, must take those free and easy tours.. :)

  6. Wow those lighted buildings are so nice and your good phototaking skill does credit to them, thanks for sharing the photos

  7. Wonderful trip. Have a nice time:)

  8. wonder cruise along Pearl River...I like to see the lightings on the buildings...reminds me of the Shanghai Huangpu River cruise....
