one day's trip out of town to explore Kaiping/Taishan from Guangzhou


Kaiping is around 2. 5 hours driving from Guangzhou, famous for its world class architectural and cultural heritage-Watch Tower (the house buildings look like fortress built in 1900s by overseas Chinese migrant workers ). We would be travelling in a private car to visit a few UNESCO sites in the countryside area with many farmland, livestock shed and fishpond along the way.
Kaiping/Taishan is also the hometown city for many overseas Chinese, if you are coming back to visit and looking for your ancestor's house, I can assist and arrange such a tour for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

Xaq was an excellent guide who was able to answer all our questions and did a great job interpreting when we went to Kaiping to find the old family diaolou. He was friendly, informative, and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience we could and handled our requests well. His communication prior to our arrival in Guangzhou was excellent and essential to us having a good visit. He and his driver, Joe, were great and I would work with them again if I travel back to Guangzhou.
