Introducing Guangzhou


Temples, glittering streets, parks, museums, galleries, entertainment venues, and luxury shopping all define Guangzhou as a major city in the heart of the world's most populous country. When you visit, start with a birds-eye view of the city at 600 meters up from the Canton Tower's observation terrace. You can also get out of the city and immerse yourself in the breathtaking nature of southern China and head to Shamian Island. Of course, Cantonese food is also widely regarded as possibly the best that Chinese cuisine has to offer, so take a gastrinomic odyssey where the dishes originated.

Guangzhou is known for:


History and Art Entertainment and Shopping Culinary Seaside Urban
