Dawan Ancient Buildings

Yunfu (云浮, wàhn fàuh in Cantonese, Yúnfú in Mandarin), also known as Wanfow based on the Cantonese pronunciation, is a city with excellent mineral resources in Northern Guangdong. A center for stonework, mining, and related industry, Yunfu is nicknamed the "stone capital" of China. It's well off the beaten path for international tourists, but it does have some natural attractions.


Yunfu includes the central districts of Yuncheng (云城 Yúnchéng) and Yun'an (云安 Yún'ān) and the counties of Xinxing (新兴县 Xīnxīng Xiàn) and Yunan (郁南县 Yùnán Xiàn). The city of Luoding (罗定 Luódìng) is also under its jurisdiction.
