Get­ting There

DestinAsian - - DISPATCHES -

Kaip­ing is a two-hour bus ride from Guangzhou’s Fang­cun Sta­tion, on Line 1 of the Guangzhou Metro; coaches depart sev­eral times a day. Where to Stay Kaip­ing is not, alas, home to much in the way of good ac­com­mo­da­tion. The best bet in Kaip­ing City is the river­side Pan Tower In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel ( 86-750/233-3333; pan­tower.com; dou­bles from US$55), while in Chikan, the Tribe of Diaomin ( 126 He­nan Rd.; 86-750/261- 6222; dmbl .cn; en-suite rooms from US$42) of­fers spar­tan if clean rooms with the added perks of on-site bike ren­tal and a bar stocked with Ger­man beer. Day-trip­ping from Jiang­men, an hour’s drive away, is an­other op­tion—the two-yearold Wanda Realm Jiang­men ( 86-750/3877777; wan­da­ho­tels.com; dou­bles from US$100) is un­doubt­edly the clos­est in­ter­na­tion­al­stan­dard ho­tel to Kaip­ing’s diaolou- dot­ted coun­try­side.
