Tips for you
Another nice outing in the Guangzhou area. It is easy and inexpensive to get to Lian Hua Shan (also known as Lotus Mountain in English) you can take a 1-hour bus ride from Shi Qiao bus station for just a few RMBs. One of the nicest areas at Lian Hua Shan is really it's quarry. You can spend easily one hour looking from above and then going down the steps and looking up to those magnificent stones. Bring your camera as you will want to take many photos. It is a very serene area during the week days. Lots of walking but very rewarding as there are many different areas to visit. A couple of restaurants just outside the mountain but why not pack a lunch and enjoy eating with the nature around you. Can spend 2-3 hours here but could easily spend the whole day to see all it has to offer, the pagoda, the views, the peach blossoms in February, the plum blossoms in January, and other flower beds during the year.
