Foshan Travel Tips

When to Go

Located in the central-southern region of Guangdong Province, Foshan has a humid, subtropical monsoon climate with temperate weather and high rainfall. Owing to its location at low altitude and adjacent to the South Sea, the average annual temperature is 22.1C (71.8F). Spring and autumn are the golden seasons to visit that place. Every year from March to October, visitors can go rafting at Jiu Dao Gu. Also of interest is the Autumn Color Art, a type of folk art with an autumn harvest theme. A series of activities and ceremonies are held in autumn to celebrate the local autumn scenes. During this period, people enjoy attending diverse folk art competitions, performances, and folk music concerts.

In the airport, there are direct buses to FS, and the bus will arrive at the Quiqi Road, where you can take a taxi to your hotel, about 2.3 miles.

By the way, the bus fare is CNY33 and the taxi fee for the rest part is about CNY15.

If you hire a taxi the whole way, it may cost you about CNY250.
