What To Expect

For your Guangzhou full-day excursion, you will be picked up from your hotel at around 6:30 am and taken to the pier for the 50 minutes journey by catamaran and coach to Shekou – The first Special Economic Zone in China. Shekou Industrial Zone is located on the east coast of the Pearl River estuary, west of Shenzhen city and 20 nautical miles from Hong Kong by sea.

Stop by a local kindergarten (except Saturday, Sunday and school holidays) and have some time playing with the kids. They're really cute and energetic, which will definitely make your trip more enjoyable. Next, visit a Safari Park to see enchanting Chinese pandas. If time permits, you will also pass through a local market to see and experience the daily life of local community.

You will also get an exciting opportunity to visit the Exhibition Hall in Shekou where you can see a display of the Qin Dynasty Terracotta Warriors and horses. The incredible Warriors are a form of funerary art made for the First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty and were discovered in Xian City, Shaanxi Province in 1974. The Army's purpose was to help Qin rule another empire in the afterlife.

The display also consists of bronze wares – more than 2000 years old – with porcelain and pottery from the Tang Dynasty, unearthed in Xian, as well as wall paintings.

Then proceed to Guangzhou via the express highway. Guangzhou was formerly known as Canton. It is the capital of Guangdong Province and the southern gateway to China. The city has a 2000-year-old history and, with a population of 5 million, and is one of the largest cities in South China. It was the first Chinese city to undertake international trade and still remains the center of the political, economic and cultural activities in South China.

After a delicious lunch at a local Chinese restaurant, you can enjoy a city tour of Guangzhou. The highlights include the Six Banyan Tree Temple and the Memorial Hall of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, an octagonal building designed in a palatial style.
