We all know that Guangdong has a small waist, the Window of the World, the famous Danxia Mountain, and the exciting Grand Canyon; but when it comes to self-driving travel, the more we drive ourselves, the more picky we become. Sometimes we just want to go to those uncut, authentic, and full of charm and beauty off-the-beaten-path places.
