South China's Essence
3-Day Kaiping and Foshan Tour
Lingnan ('Mountain Range South') historically refers to the region to the south of the five mountain ranges that separate the Yangtze River catchment (central China) from the Pearl River catchment (southern China), but it has become almost synonymous with Guangdong Province. Lingnan culture is the essence of Cantonese (Guangdong) culture and it manifests itself most notably in food, art, and architecture.
