Zhujiang New Town, Guangzhou

4.5
Uncover some hidden gems at the commercial hub of Guangzhou at Zhujiang New Town. While the eastern area of the new town is primarily residential, the bustling western side brims with government buildings, shops and restaurants, all flanked by sky-scrapers that will stop you in your tracks. Many of the restaurants and shops are in fact located below ground, which is perfect for when you want to escape the heat in those hot summer months. Stroll along the pedestrian only walkways and admire fountain shows and modern architecture. Put Zhujiang New Town at the forefront of your travel plans using our Guangzhou itinerary planning app .

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.
