Lively, crowded and fast-paced, Beijing Road is a busy commercial street in central Guangzhou, which has been the city’s main thoroughfare throughout much of its history. It might not be a proper “old street” because stores packed with goods are far more visible than the old ruins of the Empire times. However, some different ways to explore Beijing Road will bring you an unforgettable trip.

Look down on the past at the street’s underground archaeological sites, you can see through glass panels at your feet and discover remnants of roads that date back to the Song Dynasty (960–1279). Taking a detour down some of the side streets off Beijing Road, you will find that it isn’t just a destination for shopping. On and around this famous strip you can see some excavated and preserved sites. Highlights include the Site of Nanyue Kingdom Palace and the Site of the Dockyard of Qin Dynasty.

Beef Offal with White Radish, Steamed Rice Rolls, Pork Knuckles and Ginger Stew and many other snacks attract your eyes and stomach. “I’ve been selling beef offal here for over 30 years,” said the hostess of Aunt Beef Offal Stall, “Neighbors named my stall; some of them even come here specially to seek for the taste in their memory.
