Description

Discover a UNESCO World Heritage site with a private guide on this fascinating tour of Kaiping Diaolou and Villages. Survey the impressive towers built by overseas Kaiping people at Zili Village, and then pay a visit to the charming Chikan Old Town.

After pickup from your hotel, ride with your personal guide to the city of Kaiping, the ancestral homeland of many overseas Chinese. Take a stroll around the beautiful Li Garden, and pay a visit to the Zili Village, known for its group of fortified watchtowers (diaolou) that served as protection and living quarters. Discover how the buildings feature a mix of Chinese and Western architecture, and learn from your guide about the 3 different types of towers on display here.

Continue your exploration of Kaiping with a visit to Chikan Old Town. Here, take a journey into yesteryear as you wander among historic streets and Western-inspired buildings built during the Qing Dynasty in the 19th century. Largely untouched by modern commercialism, this town offers a glimpse into local rural life.

End your tour with lunch at a local restaurant, where you have a chance to taste delicious Cantonese cuisine. Eat your fill, and then enjoy a relaxed ride back to your hotel.
