Guangzhou - excursions and day trips

Located in southern China, Guangzhou is the capital of Guangdong province. The city is known for its gastronomy, traditional flavor, and modern appeal. It is also a center of trade and culture in the region. It is a short distance from Hong Kong, Macau, and Shenzhen, and is close to other major tourist destinations in China.

There are many day trips to choose from in Guangzhou. These range from tours of the city itself, to trips to surrounding cities, and even trips to nearby islands. Visiting Guangzhou can be an exciting adventure, and visitors will find many hidden gems. However, to fully enjoy the city's attractions, it is recommended to stay for at least a few days.

One of the city's top attractions is the Canton Tower. The tower is 600 meters high and provides a bird's eye view of the city. The tower is also home to a restaurant and a Ferris wheel. A ride on the wheel costs 130 yuan per person.

Another tourist attraction is the Flower Pagoda, a colorful structure built in 1097. It is part of the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees. It was named for its colorful exterior.


Other sightseeing attractions include the Baiyun Mountain, which offers spectacular views of the city. The mountain is also home to hiking trails and nature tours. A tour of the mountain includes temples, shopping centres, and nightlife areas. The itinerary for a visit to the mountain is best done in the early morning.

Another great day trip from Guangzhou is to the Kaiping Diaolou. This almost-abandoned village is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village contains over 1,800 buildings. It is also a great destination for tourists who want to learn more about Chinese culture. It was a concession area for the French and British during the 19th century.

There are a variety of day trips in Guangzhou, including ones that take visitors to local wineries. Alternatively, there are guided tours that are designed to take visitors to cultural relics of the city.

There are also private tours that are available to travelers, and these are usually guided by a professional English-speaking guide. These tours typically include a sightseeing tour, a visit to a local market, and a typical lunch. Some tours allow travelers to interact with local residents, and others are geared toward a train-sightseeing adventure.


If you are looking for a unique experience, you may wish to book a Guangzhou tour that includes a visit to Shamian Island. The island is a European-influenced locale, and has western-style architecture. A guided tour can take you to the island, and you can shop for local souvenirs.

Other day trips to Guangzhou take visitors to nearby cities, like Shenzhen and Macau. These day trips require transportation, and you will need to arrange accommodations. These are some of the most popular day trips to Guangzhou, and they are sure to make your trip a memorable one.

If you are looking for a place to shop in Guangzhou, you may wish to consider the Guangzhou Shopping Plaza. The complex is home to several hundred small shops. There is a wide selection of items to choose from, including designer handbags, cell phone cases, and other products. You should be careful not to get lost, as the complex is made up of many levels.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
