As a former student, I enjoyed the campus a lot and can say it is really enjoyable for either a walk of jogging. However, due to several ponds around the campus, mosquitoes are largely present.

The campus is currently not open to the public which is a shame as it is a lovely place. It is very green with plenty of trees and is a delightful place for a walk.

Another university full of history. Walked through the North Campus (main campus?) we ended at the bank of Pearl River, from where the Canton Tower could be seen. Beautiful night.

This place is very relaxing and has some great architecture from the 1930's. There are plenty of restaurants near the front gate and you can reach this place via ferry or metro (the ferry ride is more interesting).
