Guangzhou's New Private Resort Villages
Since the opening of markets in China, mainland & foreign developers have built many residential villages in the vicinity. The price for a villa are relatively cheap (around $ 150 000USD), & the cost of living is also very reasonable too. However, due to the high number of stock still available, 2nd hand real estate depreciate really fast. Don't think of it as an investment, for prices will still take over a decade to stabilize.
The residential villages offer a lot of amenities, including sports centres, restaurants, parks etc.
There are open house tours that you could join in Hong Kong to visit them. Usually, the tours are inexpensive, for most of the profit comes from pitching potential buyers.
Thanks to VT member Confucious, I was able figure out that the village I visited in English is called Country Garden. Thanks again!

Their fresh coconut juice is always good, and usually the best place to get coconut juice in Guangzhou...
