    A visit to Guangzhou is not complete without visiting this tower. It somehow feels like an icon of the city. You would need to see the tower from huacheng instead of going straight to the bottom of the tower. From afar, it looked majestic overlooking the Pearl river. The tower lights up at night which makes it even more outstanding.

    This is a deeply impressive zoo - up there with London and San Diego, but without all of the stifling “safety-litigious” faffery that is inflicted on many zoos. Here, some breeds of (child-friendly) monkeys are permitted to play on the same climbing equipment as are children; the safari component allows one to get man-to-giraffe with beautiful wildlife.

    We first took the (price-inclusive) cable car around the zoo, seeing everything from above. It is a huge place! We then explored on foot. Later, we took the “safari train”, which is a train of carriages pulled along a road. This looked infinitely preferable to seeing it in one’s own car, and so leave your car in the car park.

    The animals are very well-treated, the price is relatively expensive for China, but cheaper than London and the US. It is not immensely overcrowded, as a result, perhaps to its benefit. There were many school trips, and the atmosphere was positive and quite delightful. Even the shops were filled with decently fun toys, rather than the usual tourist tat, and which was not egregiously priced.

    A great day - heartily recommended if you have children, although there is plenty for adults too.

    Old historical buildings scattered around the park. There are still people living here which makes the experience an interesting one. Walk further down and we can see pearl river again. There was a lot of Chinese playing musical instruments there when we visited. Not forgetting some cafes scattered around the region and we visited Starbucks, which was located inside a historical building as well. A number of great spots to take some really nice pictures.

    It's a zoo on steriods and coffee.

    It's the Chinese Disneyworld.

    Such a unique and wonderful experience. Spent it with my Dad and his friend and his family.

    I'll never be able to go to another zoo without feeling disappointed.

    We spent New Year’s Day at Baiyun Mountain (which means White Cloud Mountain as it’s wreathed by cloud).

    Awesome cable car ride with stunning views, we could have walked!, then a further 2.5 kilometre walk up to the Moxing Summit, the highest peak!

    At Moxing Summit peak, sign pointing to the direction of and distance of 1,900 kilometres to Beijing

    The view of Guangzhou city was hazy but sunset was still cool!

    Located at Yide Road near the Haizhu Square in the city center, this beautiful over 130-year-old Roman Catholic cathedral is a holy and peaceful site in the bustling and busy urban area. From our hotel at Qiaoguang road, we walked here within 15mins of leisurely paced walk.

    The cathedral was nice, aka the Notre Dame of Guangzhou (similarly to that in Ho Chi Minh City) with the same architectural style. Unfortunately, on the day of our visit, the Cathedral was closed to the public for some private events and so we could not stand outside to take photos and read the intro from the information plagues.

    And along the section of the cathedral was small square with 2 rows of shophouses and cafes and right next was a long stretch of shophouses selling dried foods, toys and stationery which was very crowded, noisy and full of vibes but within the cathedral area, it was quiet and peaceful, what a contrast, all within 100-120m of distance!

    Great historical site to visit while in guangdong. The place showcased the history of guangdong and showed why the city was named the city of wells in the past. Insightful and educational. All the exhibits’ explanation was in Chinese and i thought that’s not really tourists friendly. But I saw some Caucasians using the headsets for the explanation.

    Quite a big area and apparently, the entire place is still work-in-progress. Entry is free just that foreigners will need to register at the counter with their passports.

    Although this river is over 2,000 km long, the most significant portion of the tourist attraction goes through Guangzhou. A good way of enjoying the river is by going on a night cruise and seeing the views when the city is lit in bright and flashing colors.

    A large and open park situated right in the middles of skyscraper. If you want to take some nice pictures of Guangzhou tower at night, this is the place to go. I saw many people taking pictures with the majestic Guangzhou tower as the background.
