How can I find the cheapest flight destinations from Guangzhou China?

I want to travel with my SO to any foreign country that I haven't yet been to. Is there any website or way to search for any international destination originating from Guangzhou China and sort by price? I'd also be up for last minute deals, and a HUGE bonus would be if we could have a several day "stop over" in a transfer city. Any other tips or ideas for cheap international travel originating in China will be helpful. (We are already aware of the train to hanoi, and train to Lhasa Tibet)
