Guangzhou

4
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. Guangzhou is in Guangdong. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Guangzhou and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

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.
