                                      Taking in some of Guangzhou’s most iconic sights, an eight-kilometre long trail entitled 'Yun Dao' is close to completion and will officially open to the public during this year's May Day holiday.

                                      Taking in some of Guangzhou’s most iconic sights, an eight-kilometre long trail entitled 'Yun Dao' (云道, literally meaning 'cloud road') is close to completion and will officially open to the public during this year's May Day holiday.

                                      Running between Baiyun Mountain and Sun Yatsen Memorial Hall, the winding route passes through eight city parks and landmarks, including the Guangzhou Garden, Yuntai Garden, Luhu Lake Park, Sculpture Park, Huaguoshan Park, and Yuexiu Park.

                                      If you're looking for a breath of fresh air in some greenery and a chance to better get to know the history of downtown Guangzhou, the Yun Dao has you covered.

                                      What does the Yun Dao look like?

                                      The trail is composed of newly built elevated pathways, newly renovated flyovers and trails with guide signs and lighting added along the whole route. Parts of elevated trail is built with an airy metal frame, giving you the impression you are walking through the air: much like a glass bridge.

                                      On both sides of the trail the scenery blends some of the most historic parts of the city with greenery and flowers galore especially in sections such as the northeast gate of Yuexiu Park, Huaguoshan Park, Tafang Garden, Lujing Road nursery garden and Jufang Garden.

                                      Please note that at present, there are no canopies or benches on the elevated parts of the trail for tourists to take shelter from rain and hot sun or sit for a short rest. These are planned future additions, however.

                                      You can currently find toilets, convenience stores and other supporting facilities inside the parks along the trail.

                                      Since there are also several flights of stairs on some parts of the trail and no disability-friendly facilities at present, wheelchairs and baby buggies cannot yet navigate the route. All these facilities will be added soon.
