Foshan is a place where "Wong Fei Hong" was born in this place. The martial art of 'Wong Fei Hong' is famous when he fought down Japanese.
An interesting view into the manufacturing backbone of China's great period of economic growth. Wonder where your furniture or light fixures come from, it well may be Foshan, and seeing the scale of production there is quite impressive. It is also the birthplace of Wing Chun, and is known for its porcelian. Think industrial, manufacturing city.
It's beautiful place. I went there with friends. And there's not any visitor except my friend and me. We swim in the river and took dinner on boat. It's a wonderful place.
