Kaiping Biking Discovery

Kaiping Biking Discovery For those  who didn’t had enough ideas for the 4 days’ holidays coming up, we propose you the following trip:

Kaiping World Heritage Discovery by Bike

Kaiping is part of the UNESCO world heritage since 2007, thanks to its famous diaolous (stone towers).

“The rambling villages of Kaiping are generally unremarkable until you come across a diaolou. Rising up from the small villages like the proverbial sore thumbs, these century old fortified towers are a reminder of a significantly more dangerous times for the villagers….

Their relative modernity, when concrete was available to build higher than ever before, leads to some interesting choices by their architects. Columns in the Roman and Greek manner, arches with a Mediterranean them. There are domes that echo the mosques of Turkey. It is quite unexpected in this now peaceful countryside…” www.kuriositas.com


The trip is limited to 12 people maximum.

The visit of the villages will be done by bikes.

For bikers who have their own bike, please bring it!

The deadline for reservations will be on Thursday March 31st.
