    Located to the east of Guangzhou in Huangpu District, Changzhou Island once was an important port. In Chinese "Changzhou" means "long island" for it is 4.2 km long, 2.1 km wide and covers 7.23 square kilometers. There are also some tourist attractions that worth visiting, including Huangpu Shipyard and Whampoa (Huangpu) Military Academy.

     

    Huangpu Shipyard, established on Changzhou Island in 1851, is currently a large state-run enterprise belonging to CSSC Guangzhou Huangpu Shipbuilding Company Ltd. The famous Whampoa (Huangpu) Military Academy is right next to it.

     

    Established in 1924 by Dr. Sun Yat-sen with the help of the Soviet Union and China Communist Party, Whampoa (Huangpu) Military Academy was a late-model school for military and political education and cultivated a number of famous commanders, hence its significance in China’s modern history and military history.
