Baiyun Mountain is the best area to spend the early morning to get some fresh and clean and go for a long walk

Visited this place on 4 Nov. We took a bus to the Yuntai Garden Bus Terminal (last stop) and took a cable car (short ride) up to the plaza. There are electric cars available to make your mountain ascend and descend easier, be sure to take these! Buy the ticket at the electric car stop or just flag 1 down... More

Covered Baiyun mountain in about 3 hours. Hiking up the mountain is a good workout and can be done by anyone whatever your fitness level. You just have to choose the right route and the distance to cover to match your fitness. There are paved roads or steps (depending on the path you choose) for most of the hike up.... More

Rode an efficiently run cable car up and down the mountain. On top, one can get a bird's eye view of the district. At the foot, one can read the interesting thousands of years history of the area.

You can walk to the top which takes about 1-2 hours depending on your fitness level. From the top you can enjoy a beautiful scene from the top of Guangzhou.

Climbing Baiyun Mountain was a fun experience and I learned, yet again, that doing what the locals do is the most satisfying thing if you are looking for a true cultural experience. I came in the south entrance, climbed to the summit, left a lock with my wife's initials and mine on the lock collection, and exited from the northwest... More

We climbed the stairs to top of mountain. It's not obvious where to go to get to them, but just keep heading up! I did not like the gauky characters they have around the lake, but mountain and the little shop near the top was pretty.

It's a great outdoor area to go for a walk in nature, and its a good place for hiking as well. Some areas you can access for free and the hiking part to get to the top of the mountain cost 5 RMB. Which is almost nothing. Definitely a place worth visiting when in Guangzhou.

At the point where the bustling city because to busy and urban, Baiyun Mountain is a good escape; outdoor rambling is limited in Guangzhou so this offers the opportunity. It is cheap to enter (around 5RMB) and is nice to explore (stay off the main road as this is rather monotonous). There are plenty of cafes/food stalls for drink and... More
