Have taken a cab outside cruise port to zhongshan Road which is not too far, it's a tourist friendly spot with small shops and local cuisine. Have not gotten chance to explore the buildings near the port though.

Not much to do, so we took a shuttle to "city center" for shopping. Take a photo of a large landmark near the bus stop and take a cab back to it instead of trying to navigate the streets.

Excursion to Gualangyu Island was terrible! Our guide's broken English did not help, but she did a poor job of explaining what we were seeing, what we were going to see,or what the full history here was. She also had no patience for bathroom stops after a long wait for a ferry and a long ferry ride. All women's toilets were non western style, so lots of squatting that day.
