The Hip-Dip-Sip-Flip-Clip-Nip Trip

Spend a fun afternoon and early evening in one of Guangzhou's most unique locations: the Zinitang Creative Park, located in a former sugar factory. Join for a swim, a Western BBQ, water games and rooftop drinks at a local artist's home!

Start with a coffee and brief, guided walking tour of this stunning, old factory area. Explore the large manufacturing halls, colonial-style office buildings, the old railroad tracks, and a plethora of graffiti and installation art. End up at the swimming pool, get changed, and spend the next hours in what is possibly Guangzhou's most beautiful swimming pool! This vast outdoor (but covered) area hosts two Olympic-sized swimming pools: one for swimming, and one for SUP and slack lining. Have free access to these activities, or try your luck at the outdoor curling arena. Swim, chill, have some drinks and take in the spectacular views from the infinity pool. Join us later for a Western style BBQ we set up by the pool. After sun set, you are welcome to visit the home and studio of an amazing local, French artist. Have some more drinks on his roof top, and enjoy the views. What a day!

This is a family-friendly trip where kids are most welcome. The swimming pool is enormous, and does not get packed with people. Smaller kids pools are not available, so bring swim floats if your child needs them.
