Sightseeing Nature Shopping
A massive metropolis and critical international trading hub, Guangzhou sprawls along the Pearl River, distinctly vibrant and cosmopolitan. Guangzhou's economic importance dates back to its role as a trading outlet along the Silk Road, and has led to a steady influx of foreign and colonial influence and an accompanying diversity of population, architecture, culture, and cuisines. The city fills up twice a year, in the spring and autumn, for the semiannual, government-sponsored international trade fair. Any Guangzhou itinerary should have space for plenty of shopping and eating: stock up on Chinese exports like tea and herbs, and dine on the delicious Cantonese food that originates in the region. Use our China vacation planner to arrange your visit to Guangzhou and other destinations in China.

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
