You can watch the tourist boats going up the river, it is worth taking a river trip the views are very good, the night trips are best when all the area is lit up.
Have a drink or snack and you will enjoy a fantastic view of the skyline/Canton tower or many other areas of the city.

Loved the whole day we had some foggy weather but still a great view and lots to see and do once your up there even has a room showing the inner workings of the tower and how it deals with wind and earthquakes etc.

Shamian Island
#7 of 286 Sights & Landmarks in Guangzhou
I loved the old buildings and the history; I loved the gardens and the bronze statues; I loved just being able to walk around the Island to find more statues and more views.
Visitors can choose what to enjoy, the view, the buildings, the historical significance, or simply to while away an afternoon; children gawk at and climb on various bronze figure sculptures.

Yuyin Hill House

This small/compact, but really beautiful park [one of the top four in Guangzhou province] provides an fantastic alternate view of "Guangzhou".
The garden itself takes awhile to reach so I only recommend it for those with a lot of time in Guangzhou (or people that make several trips to Guangzhou and have already covered the other key sights).
