Guangzhou-based filmmaker Mohamed Elsayed recently released the second episode of his webseries 020 – The Key to Guangzhou and we've rounded up all three parts for your viewing pleasure!

Elsayed released his first webisode in the series back in January. It was a compact and well-edited look at the area surrounding the Canton Tower Metro Station, as well as the subway station itself, and our editorial team made the undoubtedly wise decision to publish it online. The feedback from our readers was overwhelmingly positive, with viewers praising the filmmaker's stunning shots of new Canton and his passionate narration. In the months since that first webisode, our friend Mr. Elsayed has been busily at work on a follow-up video profiling Guangzhou’s historic train station in Yuexiu District and its dynamic surroundings. 

Clocking in at over 30 minutes in length, the second webisode of 020 is considerably longer than the first, which had a running time of just under 17 minutes. 

“The newest episode covers the chosen area in more detail and it turned out much longer than the first episode,” Elsayed told That’s. “So, I decided to split it into three parts, with each portion reviewing a famous attraction around the Guangzhou Railway Station subway stop.”

Over the course of the three-part webisode, Elsayed visits a number of local wholesale markets, the Lanpu Lu Muslim market and a mosque often referred to as one of the oldest in the world. Watch his adventures below (VPN off):
