Guiyang is the capital of Guizhou Province, in southwest China. Even in the dog days, tourists will feel the cool air as soon as they arrive in Guiyang. Life here is so attractive: tourists can play with monkeys in Qianling Mountain in the early morning, enjoy Chinese tea in Jiaxiu Building in the late morning, stroll around the tea town and flower market in the afternoon, fly a kite in Wenchang Pavilion at dusk, have a walk along Nanming River and eat snake at the night market on Hequn Road to end a perfect day.

There are eight major summer resorts in Guiyang. Huaxi Park is a cool place well worth visiting. Smart and elegant, the Huaxi River flows through the romantic Huaxi Park. At the height of the summer, visitors can go boating and swim in the cool water, and lovers can walk along the stream to enjoy the romantic atmosphere.

Adjacent to the park, there is Tianhe Pond. The pond is as exquisite as a bonsai. If you take a boat through the landscape, the scorching summer will go by without a trace. Perhaps a better choice is to stay at Qingyan Old Town for a few days. The stretch of bluestone and the old-fashioned fortress reflect upon ancient events.
