The newest masterpiece of Zaha Hadid, Guangzhou Opera House is now open to public for visits and musical performances. To join the guided tour of the building, go to the box office before 10.30 am, 11.30 am, 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm & 4 pm. There are 6 visits each day and each visit lasts for 1 hour. Take note that the opera house is closed on Monday. The Opera House is best photographed in the night. However, it's worth going again in the day to see a different perspective. If you are an architecture fanatic, it is highly recommended to take the tour (RMB 30).
