Landmarks · Theme Parks · Parks
An economically backwards region for most of its history, Guangdong transformed into an industrial and commercial powerhouse after the 1978 reforms. Now the richest of China's provinces, the area draws a growing number of tourists with its natural scenery and distinct culture. On a vacation in Guangdong, discover wild landscapes unspoiled by commercial tourism, as well as World Heritage-listed architecture and historic sites. One of the region's more surprising and hugely rewarding destinations, the small town of Kaiping features castle-like private dwellings that blend elements of both Eastern and Western architecture.
