Located in Paitan Town in the northern mountainous region of Zengcheng City, Baishui Village Scenic Spot is a provincial tourism resort. Situated in the Tropic of Cancer and covering an area of some 200 square kilometers, Baishui Village Scenic Spot is regarded as a magnificent emerald in the Tropic of Cancer. The resort can be likened to a countryside park of South China, which boasts unique waterfalls, weathering landforms and topography, an enchanting countryside landscape and a mesmerizing ecological system that consists of forests, hot spring and mountainous lakes.

The main attraction of Baishui Village is Baishuixian (White Daffodil) Waterfall, which is the number-one waterfall in terms of water head in the Chinese Mainland. Apart from that, there are a number of exquisite natural and man-made wonders, such as the picturesque Zhengguo Island Lake, the village of She Ethnic Group that presents manifold customs and ritual and Hexiangu (one of the legendary seven immortals) Temple.

The scenic spot that covers some one hundred square kilometers is free from industrial pollution, with mind-refreshing air and high concentration of anion.

The resort is also home to the first green way of Guangzhou. It is a delightful journey to cycle or walk along the greenway. Along the greenway, you will pass gardens, cross over farmlands and expose yourself to a vast blanket of green grass and blooming flowers. You can also hand pick fresh and mouth-watering strawberries.

On weekends, it is a great delight to watch Baishuixian (White Daffodil) Waterfall, the number-one waterfall in terms of water head in the Chinese Mainland with friends and families. Or you can choose to climb the "Number-one Ladder of South China" and the wooden boardwalks, altogether 9,999 steps.
