  CHINA - Guangzhou, Zhaoqing + Foshan – 4 days/3 nts

Around the time of the birth of Christ, Guangdong was far away from the centre of ancient Chinese civilization which was located in the north China plain. It was then populated by peoples collectively known as the Hundred Yue.

It was about this time that Chinese administration in the region began with the expansionism of the Qin Dynasty. After having unified most of China, the Qin expanded southwards and set up Nanhai Commandery at Panyu, very close to what is now the city of Guangzhou (Canton).
