Baiyun Shan (White Cloud Mountain)

Admission:

Admission RMB 5; cable car RMB 40 round-trip

Hours:

24 hours daily

How to get there:

Two buses can take you the 15 km (9 mi) from town to the mountain. Catch either bus no. 24 or 285 from Dongfeng Zhonglu near People's Park (Rénmín Gōngyuán, 人民公园).

Part of the range of hills that runs through Guangdong Province, White Cloud Mountain (Báiyún Shān, 白云山) is right outside town and offers a peaceful escape from Guangzhou's traffic and urban landscape. You will not, however, be the only one with this idea and, on the weekends especially, the hills are alive with the sounds of Cantonese.

The hike to the highest point should take a little over an hour, but there is the requisite cable car that can do the work for you. Temples, tea houses and lookouts will make sure you never feel alone in the wild, and the views of the city are great and somewhat comforting.
