A city in southern China . It is a major city on the Pearl River Delta, including Hong Kong, Macao, and Shenzhen. The city is also known as Canton to Westerners. It is known as the city of goats because the city was founded by five celestial goats according to an old legend. It is known as the City of Flowers for its numerous gardens which even grace the top of skyscrapers. The city is a major economic zone. Guangzhou is home to a large number of Cantonese people. It is the "mother" city of the other Canto speaking cities and areas. A large part of the population speaks Cantonese, though they are slowly being displaced by migrating workers. Natives of Guangzhou do not really welcome the workers, as they destroy the 2000 year old culture of the city, and wipe out their language. Guangzhou is the home of dimsum, and is famous for having good food.
