We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Guangdong Travel Guide
Guangdong Location:
Guangdong Province, which borders Fujian province to the northeast, Jiangxi and Hunan provinces to the north, Guangxi autonomous region to the west and Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Regions to the south, is situated on the southern part of China mainland.

History:
Guangzhou is an ancient city with a history of 2800 years. It is named 'the spring city' because with long summer the city is always with green plants and blooming with fresh flowers all years round.
Guangdong was far away from the centre of ancient Chinese civilization in the north China plain. It was populated by peoples collectively known as the Hundred Yue, who may have been Kradai and related to the Zhuang people in modern Guangxi.
Guangdong was made part of Lingnan Circuit, or Mountain-South Circuit, in 627 during the Tang Dynasty.
The name "Guangdong Province" was given in early Ming Dynasty.
In the 19th century, Guangdong was also the major port of exit for labourers to Southeast Asia and the West, i.e. United States and Canada. As a result, many overseas Chinese communities have their origins in Guangdong.
During the 1850s, the first revolt of the Taiping Rebellion took place in Guangdong.


Transportation:
As one of the most prosperous provinces in China, Guangdong Province is conveniently accessible by air, railway, highway and waterway. It is also the major gateway adjoining Hong Kong and Macau.
There are five civil airports within Guangdong Province, respectively located in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Shantou and Zhanjiang. The main airport is the Baiyun International Airport in Huadu District. Flights from Guangzhou New Baiyun International Airport connect Guangzhou with more than 70 domestic cities and over 20 international cities.
Guangzhou Railway Station located on the Huanshi Xi Lu, northwest of Guangzhou, can be reached easily by public buses.
Guangdong has established a land way traffic network system which connects major towns, cities, airports and harbors. There are highway coaches to and from many major southern cities in the country.
Guangzhou is located by the Pearl River. Boats sailing along the river can take visitors to Hong Kong, Macau, Haikou and Sanya.
