I've seen a lot in China, but this place is remembered its special atmosphere. And if you have a free day in Guangzhou, you will not regret, if you spend it in Kaiping. From Guangzhou bus goes for about two hours. Come not to the end station. Ask the driver "Kaiping"! If you do not see the free taxi at the exit of the bus terminal, then go inside the building and ask "Kaiping" !? )) For 300 yuan, I arranged with the driver to inspect the three main places. The trip takes 3-5 hours. Entrance is paid separately, it is inexpensive.
