Baiyun Mountain, Guangzhou

4.1
#2 of 172 in Nature in Guangdong
A combination of a natural scenery and 1,000 years of history and culture make Baiyun Mountain a popular recreational area for Guangzhou residents. Take a cable car to reach the peak's observation area, overlooking 28 sq km (11 sq mi) of undulating landscape with a total of 30 peaks. The hills and a large lake area support some 876 species of plants and quite a few birds, as well as numerous well laid-out gardens. Visit the sculpture park spanning 46 hectares (113 acres), hike along well-maintained trails, or jump from a bungee tower providing a sweeping view of the area.

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
