Visiting Guangzhou

Guangzhou is located in the southern part of the humid tropical zone. It is near the South China Sea, and the climate is really humid. From February to June is mainly rainy, and in February it is also cold so the weather is comparable with rainy weather in England!

  • Guangzhou has more than 2000 years of history and has developed a rich culture, so you can expect to see really a lot here.
  • Guangzhou is one of the most modern and developed cities in the world, perfect for those who are looking for luxury and super modern style.
  • The food in Guangzhou (called Cantonese cuisine) is known as one of the richest in variety in the whole of China.
  • Guangzhou is one of the largest trade centers in the world, hosting the famous Canton Fair, so for the businessmen, it should be of great interest.

Day 1- Explore the two older parts of Guangzhou; Liwan and Yuexiu

Your first day in Guangzhou is focused on Yuexiu and Liwan areas, which are the older part of the city. Yuexiu Park is located on a hill, with nice gardens and three lakes. It is full of beautiful traditional pavilions, amusement playgrounds, alleys and other places to relax.

You can enjoy the old streets of Xiguan, and especially the nice park with its Liwan Lake. The evening atmosphere is really exciting there. You can enjoy some shopping in this area too – there are a lot of souvenirs, Chinese tea, as well as just clothes, shoes and other “normal” shops.

Day 2- Focus on Pearl River, and the new modern parts of Guangzhou; Tianhe and Haizhu

It is time for one of the most exciting activities during your Guangzhou itinerary- a cruise on Pearl River. Follow the river bank. After you leave Shamian, you find a large square, where you can see the beautiful old building of the Canton Customs on your left. The cruise on the river is around 45 mins and you will enjoy stunning views of the Guangzhou cityscape. Canton Tower is one of the tallest TV towers in the world, and in general- one of the tallest buildings, at 600m high. Its design is a real masterpiece, reminiscent of a maiden, gently twisting her waist. From Canton Tower, you can take the metro for a few stations and arrive at the central part of Tianhe- to Tianhe South station. Then you can take an evening walk and enter Tee Mall – one of the biggest malls in China. There are a lot of things that you can do inside – shopping, watching movies, and of course finding your dinner.

Day 3- Make a trip to the south- to explore Panyu and Nansha areas.

In Panyu, there are a few beautiful old traditional and historical sites worth visiting. In Panyu, Lingnan Impression Park is a former village, gradually swallowed by the growing city. But unlike many other villages, this one has been well protected due to its beautiful old Cantonese architecture. In Panyu, explore Baomo Garden. It is a real paradise and the most beautiful garden of this kind that I have seen. Its story comes from the Qing Dynasty times, and now it presents plenty of Cantonese architecture; pavilions, temples, halls, ponds, artificial rock hills and bridges.

Day 4- Departure from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport

Your delightful journey ends. Fly back to your country carrying fond memories along.
