I finish my exams (here in Shanghai) on 5th Jan, planning to make my way down to Guangzhou by 10th Jan to meet a friend who finishes her exams there on that day, then leaving around 14th Jan. I've already been to Guangzhou and Shenzhen, but not to the rest of Guangdong province, any suggestions of where to go before landing in Guangzhou proper? We're also planning to take a couple of daytrips to destinations around Guangzhou, any suggestions for those too? My friend wants to go to Zhongshan for at least 1 of the days. So far I've thought briefly about Shantou (Swatow), Chaozhou, Zhuhai, Foshan and Zhaoqing. Any comments/suggestions on these as well as other destinations will be appreciated. I'm mainly interested in history, culture, food and scenery. Thanks all and happy travelling. :)

taiga, I *can* read Chinese, and I've already been reading up both on and offline, if you've noticed from what I've written in my original question! Can't you offer anything more helpful than just pointing me to such a general website?
