Foshan is famous for its developed pottery and ceramics. Except for a few temples and an ancient pottery-making center, the Nanfeng Ancient Kiln in Shiwan, the city has nothing of interest to offer travelers.
A visit to Foshan can be combined with tours to Guangzhou, as the two cities are near each other.
I want to go from foshan too macau on a weekend.
Please give me advice.

Dear Anton de Wit,
There are many ways to get Macau from Foshan, such as take a taxi, and take an intercity coach.
If you would like to take a taxi from downtown Foshan to Macau, you need to pass the border (Gongbei Port) on foot, after that, you get Macau. You can take another taxi to get downtown Macau. The distance between Foshan to Macau is about 135kM, it takes about 2.5 hours.
The cost is about CNY 500. (Foshan has much fewer taxis than Guangzhou and Shenzhen. And almost all taxis are old, please understand.)
Another way to get Macau is taking an intercity coach. Almost all bus stations and passenger depots in Foshan have intercity coach to Macau (usually stop at the Gongbei Port); after you get the port, you need to pass it on foot as well. The intercity bus costs about CNY 80, and takes about 3 hours.
Here are the introductions of the two busiest bus stations in Foshan:
Located in Fenjiang Zhong Road, Chancheng District, Foshan Bus Station is the main terminal for Foshan's bus service. It operates inter-province lines to many cities.
Another bus station of Foshan located in Sizhi Road, called Foshan Intercity Bus Terminal.
