part of the villages are under renovation. me and my friend visited this village during the weekdays, most of the artists' studios were closed, some nice cafes did open though, but the housing there are congested to each other and it is not a good place for wandering around.

Depending on your interest and willingness to get lost you could probably spend 1/2-1 day here wandering around. If you are coming from GZ East Station you can take bus number 45 directly to the last stop and you will be right at the entrance for Xiaozhou. Signage is iffy, the friend I went with has been there twice now... More

This is an old village which hosts many local art galleries and workshops. It is surrounded by canal and many small cafe outlets. If you are foodie adventurer, try out some of the home cooked dishes in restaurants along alleys of this village. A good place for half or 1 day weekend outing with family and friends.

One day journey in the village with a few friends. We saw that the village was on the list of places to see in Guangzhou so just hopped in a bus to get there. We first had some difficulties to get inside the village... Found the map and finally got inside. The village was kind of a mess on the... More

A cute little artist/hipster/canto maze of a town. An easy 30-40 min bus ride from Tianhe. Set amongst canals and surrounded by orchids. Small cafes, restaurants-friendly and more relaxed than Guangzhou's concrete high rises and shopping malls. Definitely a must visit if you have a spare 3-4 hours.

I was lucky enough to be invited to exhibit art in this incredible artist village. It is like a portal back in time with narrow, interesting alleyways, delicious restaurants that are super cheap, outdoor markets, and the daily life of artists and workers. This is a treasure of authenticity and still functions to provide a space for new artists to... More

Xiaozhou village is a fantastic activity for anyone interested in wondering around a smaller artsy/bohemian type village filled with cafes & artisans shops – it’s actually a village within the more modern part of a local town; actually a part of south GZ city and, it’s so easy to get to by bus, you’ll want to go back for more....

This is one of the most beautiful places in Guangzhou. You can find artisans of all kind and its crooked streets are awesome. You truly have the feeling of walking through tradtional China. I suggest stopping by Pin Café. The owner, Lucy, is a very interesting woman with a lot of stories to tell about China. All food is so... More

Quite a ways from the city center, this is worth a visit. It was a nice change of pace from the rest of the city. A much slower pace and it was interesting to have people actually living in the area rather than just working at the site.

A village in the Guangzhou Wan-Mu Orchard Conservation Zone (广州万亩果园保护区), Haizhu District (海珠区), is a well preserved cultural heritage. The most amazing things are the “oyster houses” (蚝壳屋) which was built with oyster shells that would not be damaged by rain or worms. It was designed to keep the residents cool during summer and warm during winter.
