Take the advice here to visit Zumiao which is the stop for the museums in Foshan.

Food is good there. If you have more time, visit NanFeng Kiln as well.

I want to leave my hotel in gz south and keep my luggage somewhere before going to the baiyun airport at night because I don't want to backtrack to the hotel to collect and then go airport (around 2 hours total). Any suggestions?
