Yangchun is located approximately 160 miles southwest of Guangzhou, in Guangdong Province, China. You can travel to Yangchun from Guangzhou by train or by road. Most groups have been travelling by chartered bus.
Although it is theoretically possible to travel directly from Hong Kong or Macau to Yangchun, all of the major roads lead to Guangzhou, so it's generally faster to start from Guangzhou. To give you a good idea of the distances involved, the driving distance between Hong Kong and Guangzhou is about 90 miles.
Many groups stop at the scenic Seven Star Crags park outside of Zhaoqing for a visit and/or lunch.
Shortly after Zhaoqing, the highway peters out and becomes a very rough, gravel road. The scenery is very beautiful, with lots of rice paddies, water buffalo, spiky looking hills, etc. The pace is very slow from this point until you reach Yangchun, and though there is a lot to look at, be prepared for a bone rattling ride. The estimated driving time from Zhaoqing to Yangchun is approximately 4 hours.
It appears that this road is scheduled for upgrading, so in a year or so, its condition may be significantly improved.
