It's a nice place for 2 or 3 single days of hiking but don't go there on weekends or chinese public holidays. It's overcrowded on those days with "traffic jams at the narrow stairs and ladders. Some people go there with sunday shoes or high heels and stuck on the steep stairs. The scenery is absolutly beautiful but there is a lot rubbish everywhere which gives it all a sad look. But nevertheless it is worse a trip if you are used to mainland China.
From Guangzhou take the Highspeedtrain to Shaoguan than by bus or Taxi to Shaoguan East station which is the main station for regular trains and from there there are busses to Danxiashan every few minutes. When you arrive at the gate you need to buy a ticket first. The ticket counter is not at the gate, so they will send you back to another building about 200m away to buy them. The tickets are valid for all three parts of the park one entry each for I think 1 week. When you go back there will be many "black Taxi's" The drivers will ask for 20RMB to Shaoguan. It's o.k. but they will fill up there car with other tourist untill they go. It could take a little, better take the bus back. I'm happy that I went there but I wouldn't go a second time.
