If you want to have a weekend getaway, here are some must-visit attractions in the suburbs.

Dalingtou Mountain in Conghua

Mount Huangshan or Yellow Mountain in east China's Anhui Province is known for its spectacular granite peaks, odd-shaped pines, hot springs and sea of clouds. Now, you don’t have to visit another province to enjoy the magnificent sea of clouds, as you can view such scenery right here in Guangzhou’s Conghua.

The sea of clouds is seen almost two thirds of the year. The mountain tops are hidden beneath veils of mist while the white ‘silk ribbon’ gives tourists a sense of mystery.

The scene at night is also incredible. After sunset, the sky will be dotted with bright stars.
