Although Guangzhou is the third largest city in China behind Shanghai and Beijing it certainly doesn't lack culture by any means. With easy access to Hong Kong, Macau, The Pearl River and South China Sea, Guangzhou has made a name for itself as the primary political, economic, scientific, educational and cultural hot bed of Southern China. Often considered to be the pioneer of economic development in China this remarkable city will provide a unique insight into China's past and present that often goes overlooked.

The Nanyue King Museum is home to over 1,000 burial artifacts and holds the oldest and largest tomb of the Han dynasty. Hidden 65 feet underground the tomb was constructed with 750 huge stones covered in rare murals uncommon for this type of burial. Considered to be one of the most famous museums in China your exploration of the excavated artifacts from a 7 part tomb will leave you amazed by the lengths Nanyue Zhao Mo went to preserve his lifestyle in the after life.

At the Sun Yat-Sun Memorial memorial hall you will explore the beautiful complex built to honor
Sun Zhongshan, the flag bearer the Chinese Democratic revolution. Built in 1931 and reconstructed in 1998, the main hall is full of intricate local designs and provides the perfect location for performances, conferences and celebrations. With a statue of Sun Zhongshan greeting you at the time of arrival this memorial is the perfect escape from the bustling metropolis of Guangzhou and provides a semblance of culture that will follow you everywhere you go!

Following lunch at a local restaurant hand picked by your guide you will head to the Guangzhou zoo to observe some of China's most famous pandas. Giant pandas are black and white bears that live in temperate-zone bamboo forests in central China. Among the best recognized but rarest animals in the world, they have come to symbolize endangered species and conservation efforts. A can't miss during your time in China! Following your panda encounter you will wind down your day exploring the shops and architecture of Lizhi park before returning to the pier!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
