You can go to Bogda Halal Food Restaurant. It provides good halal foods. The prices are reasonable and acceptable. The address is Building No.5, Jiatai Garden, Changshi Road, West Water Park Street, Nankai District.

From Guangzhou, there are several normal speed trains. They depart at 07:45, 11:30, 17:53, 19:32 from Main Railway Station and 11:10, 20:38 from East Railway Station. It takes around one day and two hours on the way.
