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.

If you arrive at Guangzhou Baiyun Airport at 15:40 and then depart at 22:00, you will have no more than 4 hours for a tour. As I know, there is no historical sites near the airport. However, Yuexiu Park where you can see Five-Ram Sculpture is about 30 km distance away from the airport. You can take the subway to park, and the round way subway trip will take around 2 hours so that you have only 2 hours to wander around. After arriving at the airport, you can find the Airport South Station (T1) and get on Subway Line 3 North Extension Line to Jia He Wang Gang Station. Then transfer to Subway Line 2 to Yuexiu Park Station. Exit B1, you can find the park. The subway ticket fee is around CNY 7. To save some time on the way, you can also consider to take a taxi, the taxi fare to Yuexiu Park is around CNY 90.

As I know, the Philippines is not included in the 53 countries that can apply for 144-hour transit visa exemption, and your itinerary is not applicable to apply for a transit visa.
