    What to Expect
    Upon pickup from your Guangzhou hotel, travel in a comfortable private vehicle to your first stop, Huacheng Square,

    Take in the lush greenery as you walk through this modernized section of Guangzhou. See architectural landmarks such as the Guangzhou Opera House, Children’s Palace and the 37-floor Canton Tower – the tallest tower in the world. Then drive to Shamian Island to see historical buildings from the colonial European period. Learn about the British and French influences on the town's neoclassical architecture and design.

    Next up, admire the rich decorations of the Chen Clan Academy, originally a temple that dates to the Qing Dynasty. Once used to prepare for imperial exams, the elaborately decorated building now houses the Guangdong Folk Art Museum. Browse exhibits that feature Cantonese craftsmanship from Guangdong Province, including Chinese ink works, traditional embroidery and ceramics.

    Have lunch at a local restaurant around midday, then continue your tour at the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King, which dates back 2,000 years to the Han Dynasty. See cultural relics such as King Zhao Mo’s burial garment, made with more than 2,000 pieces of jade connected by silk thread.

    From there, walk to Zhenhai Tower (Five Stories Pagoda) via Yuexiu Park. Enjoy the serene park, the largest in downtown Guangzhou, and walk by Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. When you reach the Ming-era Zhenhai Tower, head inside to visit the Guangzhou Museum. Tour the museum with your guide and see informative displays about Guangdong's history and culture.

    At the end of a full day, your tour ends with drop-off at your Guangzhou hotel.
