Tour Highlights
Dr. Sun Yatsen's Memorial Hall
It is one of the many memorial halls in the country for this great forerunner in the revolutionary history, the founder of Nationalist Party of China and Republic of China. Built in 1929, the whole architectural complex covers an area of 62,000 square meters. The main building is a 3,700 square meters majestic octangle hall with no pillars in the middle. The plaque of the hall is inscribed with Dr. Sun's own handwriting: "the world is for all" which was also the guidance and goal of his revolutionary life.

Ancestral Temple of the Chen Family
It was built in 1894 of the Qing Dynasty by the joint-venture of all the Chens in the province. It was originally used as a residence for the Chens' children when they came to Guangzhou to take part in the imperial examinations. But after the system was abolished, it became the family's academy. This family temple is large scaled, garishly decorated and very well preserved. The whole area of structure occupies an area of 8,000 square meters which contains incomputable elegant and complicated sculptures, screens, windows and railings, etc. The buildings themselves are art works which were visited and highly praised by many architects from all over the world.

I am not sure that whether you are talking about 72-Hour Visa Free or not. If you mean that you will fly from one country to another country and transit in Guangzhou, you can apply for the 72-Hour Visa Free permit at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, and then you are able to stay in Guangzhou for 3 days and join in a tour.

However, if you say that you want to apply for 24-Hour Direct Transit, I am afraid that it is not allowed to extend extra days in China and you can only stay in China for one day.

As a result, I think 72-Hour Visa Free is a good choice for you if you plan to transit in Guangzhou for less than 3 days.

It’s okay to visit the city during new year festival, and you can enjoy more fun. And it’s also good to the mountain, but it may be a little cold, so take your warm clothes! Have a nice trip!

I am afraid your time is too limited to join a tour. If you really wanna have a short visit, take subway line 3 to Jiahewanggang and change to line 2 to Haizhu Square. Then you may walk to Yanjiang Road to view the Pearl River. Then take your kids to Beijing Road for roaming around. The return way can be the same.

Note: you will travel during the rush hours, so the subway will be very crowded. Take care of your kids and watch out for your belongings.
