Full description
The Guangzhzou English guide will be holding a sign with your name written on it and wait for your group at your centrally located Guangzhou hotel at 09:00 in the morning. Then, visit Guangzhou Five Rams Statue and Zhenhai Tower. This five ram concrete sculpture is just like the symbol of Guangzhou, hence the “City of Five Rams” reference. Many products use "Five Rams City" for its branding. Some citizens also like to go there to do some morning exercises, to dance and go jogging etc. Zhenhai Tower is a special collection and exhibition of cultural relics and historical sites of Guangzhou history. Then, have a typical Guangzhou snack for lunch. The lunch fee is at your own charge, which is not included in the tour package.

Later on, go to Temple of the Six Banyan Trees and Chen Ancestral Temple. The Baozhuangyan Temple was first built by the monk Tanyu under orders from Emperor Wu 1500 years ago, and the Buddhist holy land at Guangzhou, which is also regarded as one of Guangzhou's scenic spots and historical sites. Chen Ancestral Temple is the most famous of existing ancestral temples in Guangzhou known as the "Guangzhou's cultural card."

Then, go to Lychee Bay and Shamin Island. Lychee Bay is regarded as a typical southern Chinese water town offering amazing architecture and cuisine. Shamin Island is one of the most interesting places in Guangzhou, many of the buildings look European in style here, and there is a main French Catholic church and some beautiful parks located on the island. Finally, return back to your hotel.
