    What to Expect
    When you arrive at Guangzhou Baiyun airport, pick up your passes at the designated spot for a convenient start of your stay in the city.

    Metro pass: Getting around Guangzhou is easy with your one-day pass for the metro. On these 7 different metro lines, you can travel to places including Guangdong Folk Arts Museum and the Museum of Nanyue King of Western Han Dynasty.

    Guangdong Folk Arts Museum: The Chen Clan Academy is home to the Guangdong Museum of Folk Arts. Located west of the old town, the museum displays an interesting selection of traditional crafts. The building presents typical Lingnan architectural features with a balanced layout and exquisite and richly-decorated interior. It is now the biggest, best preserved and decorated complex in Guangdong.

    The Museum of Nanyue King of Western Han Dynasty: It is located in Xianggang Hill (163 feet/49.7 meters above sea level) on the western end of the Xiuyue Park on North Jiefang Road. The tomb, with a history of more than 2,000 years, was built for Zhao Muwei, the self-proclaimed "Wen Di" (Emperor Wen) and the second king of the Nanyue Kingdom, whose capital was based in Panyu in the early Western Han Dynasty, and the grandson of Qin-dynasty General Zhao Tuo, who unified Lingnan region. The tomb was discovered in 1983 when Xianggang Hill was leveled to make way for a dormitory building. It is buried about 20 meters below the hill. The Nanyue King's tomb is the earliest and largest early Han-dynasty mausoleum ever discovered, featuring the richest burial objects even seen. It also contains a painted coffin chamber with murals.

    The coffin chamber is built entirely of stone. Artifacts uncovered from the tomb, particularly brass-ware and pottery, exhibit cultural features typical of the Yue ethnic group in South China. The jade suit worn by the occupant of the tomb has been restored to its original condition. It's the earliest and only complete "silk-thread jade suit" among all Western Han jade suits ever found in China. A number of invaluable rare objects, including a blue plat glass panel, the world's first set of color print copperplate molds and African ivories, have also been uncovered from the mausoleum.
