Kaiping Diaolou and Villages
#1 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Kaiping
It is possible to do all villages in one day, but you'll need a car and be very disciplined with how much time you spend at each site.
Even if this attraction is inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list, only a few tourists (especially foreign) ever make it out here.
Watchtower Group of Zili Village
#2 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Kaiping
The site is reachable by bus 617 from Kaiping city centre (one every 20 mins or so), the journey is about 40 mins.
It's similar to the Mingshi Lou, although the balcony is off-limits and the highest floor has steel railings obstructing the view.

Kaiping Garden
#6 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Kaiping
The price for the garden is too high (100 Yuan) but on the combined ticket you can visit several sights for 180 Yuan, definitely get the combined ticket and stay in Kaiping 2 days to have time to see them.

Jinjiangli Village
#8 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Kaiping
If you only go to the Kaiping Diaolou as a day trip, choose the Zili Village and this lesser visited UNESCO site - the Jinjiangli Village.
Pretty great views, very beautiful from the outside.
