Hong Kong - Day Trips from Hong Kong (Chapter)
Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Hong Kong – and they can all be completed in a day. Must-sees include the Mausoleum of the Nányuè King in Guăngzhōu and Shēnzhèn’s Window of the World theme park.
Although bargain shopping is Shēnzhèn’s main draw, some interesting cultural spaces have emerged that are gradually picking up steam. There are also a few theme parks worth checking out.
Known to many as Canton, Guǎngzhōu is a sprawling city of 12 million people that may seem chaotic to the uninitiated. But with patience, you’ll discover charming old streets, ancient temples, elegant churches, majestic villas and the sites of uprisings that changed the history of China. And, fittingly enough, in Canton you’ll find Cantonese cuisine cooked at its best.
Coverage includes: Shēnzhèn and Guǎngzhōu.
