If you are looking for an authentic gastronomical experience in South China's Guangdong province, the key is to find the right restaurant, such as the White Swan Hotel. Built by renowned industrialist Fok Ying-tung and the provincial government of Guangzhou, it opened in 1983 as the first five-star hotel in China as a Chinese-foreign joint venture.
