History

The district was established as a county Hua County or Huaxian (Chinese: 花县; pinyin: Huāxiàn; also known as Fahsien) in the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911). It remained a county until 1993 when it was recognized as a city and renamed as Huadu (Chinese: 花都; pinyin: Huādu); in 2000, it became an attached suburban district of Guangzhou. Natives speak a dialect of Yue Chinese called Huaxian (Fahsien; Chinese: 花县话).

Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Guangzhou's main airport, is located in the district, as is Guangzhou North Railway Station on the Wuhan–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway.
