At the mouth of the Pearl River, Guangzhou, also known as Canton, invites you on this 4 day package to delve into its delights, old and new.

On the outskirts of Guangzhou, explore the Kaiping Diaolou villages, multi-storeyed defensive village houses which display a complex and flamboyant fusion of Chinese and Western structural and decorative forms. In the city centre, take time out to self-explore, before an afternoon of visiting city sights – walk the lovely, tree-lined neighbourhood of Shamian Island, bordering the Pearl River and ascend the iconic Canton TV Tower for a birds eye view of the city. At 604 metres tall, this multi-purpose observation tower lights up the Pearl River in the evening with its rainbow of lighting.
