As the sun shines brightly and nature flourishes, wanderers embark on a journey to the fifth stop of their exploration through Foshan. Following the trail leads them to Baini Town, a quaint town nestled with Lingnan charm, where stories and allure await discovery.

In Baini town's Sanxiang Village, picturesque scenes unfold: waterside residences and the gentle flow of small bridges accompanied by the rhythmic sound of oars. Strolling through the streets and alleys of Sanxiang Village, visitors are greeted by the sight of cobblestone paths winding amidst traditional Lingnan architecture, evoking a poetic essence reminiscent of the Jiangnan region.

Recently, the village has been adorned with various beautiful flowers, adding a kaleidoscope of colors to the surroundings. Baini town, just an hour's drive from Guangzhou and Foshan, is small yet exquisite, an absolute must-visit!

Apart from Sanxiang Village, the Creative Grain Warehouse is also worth exploring. Visitors can immerse themselves in the Grain Museum and the Dragon Boat Museum, experiencing the allure of history.

The Grain Museum stands on the site of the former state-owned grain processing factory, serving as Guangdong's only museum dedicated to the theme of grains. It offers visitors, young and old alike, an opportunity to reflect on the past while enjoying the sweetness of nostalgia.

At the Dragon Boat Museum, visitors can delve into the history, culture, and craftsmanship behind dragon boats. Through viewing models and listening to explanations, children can gain a deeper understanding of the charm of this traditional culture.

Near the Creative Grain Warehouse lies the Xijiang River Courtyard, characterized by its riverside courtyard-style architecture, exuding tranquility and elegance. Here, tucked away within an artistic community, is the trendy "Mud·COFFEE" establishment, known for its unique fusion of coffee and lacquer art. Adorned with exquisite lacquer hand fans, each one-of-a-kind, guests can capture artsy photos amidst the backdrop of Lingnan's ancient architecture.

Just a stone's throw away from the Xijiang River Courtyard is the Juxian Pavilion. Situated along the banks of the Xijiang River in Shawei Village, the Pavilion boasts a traditional yet elegant exterior, predominantly adorned in red, exuding a sense of grandeur and sophistication.

From within the Juxian Pavilion, visitors can gaze outward and behold the majestic Xijiang River, where the river's beauty unfolds before their eyes.

With its quaint streets, historic sites, and picturesque scenery, Baini remains a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by those seeking adventure and beauty in the heart of Foshan. Whether it's exploring the winding lanes of Sanxiang Village, immersing oneself in the rich history of the Grain Museum, or simply savoring a cup of artisanal coffee at Mud·COFFEE, Baini Town promises an unforgettable journey filled with charm, culture, and delight.
