The young anchors visited the Guangzhou Maritime Museum which displays historical artifacts and documents related to Guangzhou's 2,000 history of the Maritime Silk Road and foreign trade development. The artifacts highlighted the city's brilliant history as a commercial hub for over a millennium.
They also visited Guangzhou's landmark, Canton Tower. Standing tall at 600 meters it is China's Tallest TV Tower. Through its high-tech construction, it reflects China's innovative power.
The young anchors visited Guangzhou University, where they interacted with representatives of the university's technology and innovation departments. They engaged with domestic and international viewers through online streaming and interactive experiences, learning about the innovative technologies behind the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and the Canton Tower.

The young anchors then ventured into the Guangdong Science Center and had interactive experiences such as driving through the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, donning aviation uniforms for photos, conducting astronaut rotation training and enjoying theater shows with naked-eye 3D technology. Those immersive experiences allowed them to experience the advanced technology in the Greater Bay Area.
In this journey, they witnessed how a 1,000-year-old city intersected with innovation and technology.
