Guangzhou, the capital of China’s Guangdong Province, is one of the most rapidly developing cities in Southeast Asia. Built on a rich heritage and vibrant culture, this modern city embodies the best of both the modern world and the ancient exotic orient. Guangzhou has also become a major tourist hub of South China, with amazing attractions such as the Canton Tower, Shamian Island, Sacred Heart Cathedral, the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees, and the Chimelong Paradise. For luxury serviced apartments in Guangzhou make a reservation at the Ascott IFC Guangzhou.
Being one of the most rapidly developing cities in China, Guangzhou has gotten the reputation for being some-what of a concrete jungle. But still, within the maze of urban development, you will find a few havens dedicate to nature. One such haven is the White Cloud Mountain. White Cloud Mountain is one of the most popular natural attractions of Guangzhou for its beauty and serenity. Regarded as the “First Spectacular Scene” of the city, White Cloud Mountain is a must-visit attraction of Guangzhou.
From ancient times, White Cloud Mountain has held a special place amongst the folk of Guangzhou for the reason that after the rainy season in late spring, a ring of white clouds encircles the peak of the mountain, which gives any onlooker the impression that the mountain has a cloud wreath or halo. This amazing phenomenon has put While Cloud Mountain on the map as one of the city’s most fascinating locations. The mountain is also surrounded by other ridges, including the 400m tall Moxing Ridge which is great for hiking.
Surrounding the ridges are many parks and scenic areas such as the Bird Spring Valley Park, Luhu Park, Bright Pearl Building Park, and the Santailing Park (which is home to the scenic Yuntai Garden). With all these parks and ridges, a visit to the White Cloud Mountain is well worth visiting for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Guangzhou.
