South China’s Essence
3-Day Kaiping and Foshan Tour
Lingnan (‘Mountain Range South’) historically refers to the region to the south of the five mountain ranges that separate the Yangtze River catchment (central China) from the Pearl River catchment (southern China), but it has become almost synonymous with Guangdong Province. Lingnan culture is the essence of Cantonese (Guangdong) culture and it manifests itself most notably in food, art, and architecture.
Our 3-day trip to Kaiping and Foshan will enable you to discover unique Lingnan folk culture, feast your eyes on gorgeous countryside landscapes, and satisfy your taste buds with Cantonese food. (gd-1)

Best experience ever!
Our tour guide Mervyn was extremely knowledgeable. We had to change our plans due to a virus closure and she found other activities that we loved! By the end of the trip we felt like we had made a close friend and would enjoy spending time together again.
