The Red Boat is a very unique nighttime cruise on the Pearl River. It is very popular for its Guangdong Opera performance while you are having a night cruise.
In the distance, it looks like a Lingnan building built on water. The bow’s design draws its inspiration from the Aiqun Tower. One side of the cruise’s hull is decorated with colorful Manchurian windows, as well as architectural elements representing the traditional veranda and the “cage doors” of the mansions of Guangzhou’s West Gate district. The stern’s design borrows from the styles of the Temple of the Chen Clan and the Foshan Ancestral Temple. From the bow to the stern, the “Red Boat of the Pearl River” embodies the fine craftsmanship and simple elegance that characterize Lingnan’s traditional architectural art, and expresses cultural memories about Guangzhou during different eras.
A group of young and beautiful Cantonese opera actors performs a magnificent Cantonese opera on the Red Boat, restoring the ancient tradition in a stylish way, and making the red ship one of the iconic symbols of Guangzhou. When you are traveling in Guangzhou, this will be an amazing choice of your trip to enjoy the traditional Lingnan culture.
