Baiyun Mountain (Bàiyùnshǎn)
Baiyun Mountain (Bàiyùnshǎn) Review
Also known as White Cloud Mountain, Baiyun Mountain gets its name from the halo of clouds that, in the days before heavy pollution, appeared around the peak following a rainstorm. The mountain is part of a 28-square-km (17-square-mile) resort area, and consists of six parks, 30 peaks, and myriad gullies. Santailing Park is home to the enormous Yuntai Garden, of interest to anybody with a thing for botany. Fei'eling Park has a nice sculpture garden, and Luhu Park is home to Jinye Pond, as pure and azure a body of water as you're likely to find within 100 miles. All in all, a trip to Baiyun Mountain is a good way to get out of the city center—maybe for a day of hiking—without traveling too far. The cable car is an excellent way to get an expansive view of the cityscape and take photos with the backdrop of Guangzhou's skyline. The outdoor restaurant is a good place for simple dishes such as fried rice, noodles, and tea and conversation on a sunny day.
