I will be transitting Guangzhou on my way home from London in May next year. I have an 8 hour layover (arrive 12:50pm depart 9:05pm) and would rather get out and see a bit of the city than sit in the airport if I can. I was wondering if anyone has any current suggestions or tips for this (last thread on this topic I found closed 3 years ago). I'm travelling alone and not adverse to doing a half day tour (great if they could pick up and drop off at airport), or striking out on my own if transport is easy enough to negotiate. I neither speak nor read any Chinese languages or dialects. I'd like to grab a good Chinese feed and maybe see a temple or other culturally or historically significant places.
