Travel Tips for Guangzhou

Guangzhou's Interesting Stamp & Coin Market

by Confucius about Stamp and Coin Market

If you collect stamps or coins this is the place to go in Guangzhou. There is also a vast selection of Chinese historical memorabilia such as Cultural Revolution posters, comic books, Mao Zedong pins, as well as other antiques from the last century and beyond.
On the first floor are individual stalls selling mostly coins and stamps. There is one selling postcards of China as well. You can find old currency as well as contemporary commemorative issues. Foreign currency is in abundance; almost every country's money can be found here. If you need notes from North Korea, Bhutan or Oman, then this is where you'll complete your collection.
I bought a nice Saddam note as a novelty item to display in my international collection.
On the second floor you'll find individual stalls selling Cultural Revolution posters, old books, and many more items that fall in the category of antiques. It's a fun place to browse and you'll see lots of stuff that is similar to what can be found at Beijing's Panjiayuan market. It's easy to spend an hour or two on the second floor alone, so you might want to check it out first. The Stamp and Coin Market is an excellent destination on a rainy day in Guangzhou. Cultural Revolution posters are a good buy. The artwork is excellent and you can find some with humorous slogans such as "Down With American Imperialists"
Another popular novelty item are the little red books of Mao Zedong's sayings that were waved around back in the 60's and 70's. You can also purchase one of those old red armbands that were worn by the Red Guards and perhaps get a shiny metal Mao medal to go with it in order to complete your revolutionary Halloween party costume. (The optional green cloth cap with red plastic star is available too.) Cultural Revolution Posters 40-200 RMB
Saddam Hussein Iraqi Dinar Currency 8 RMB
Chinese stamps, coins, postcards......cheap!

No different than a typical...

by pjallittle


No different than a typical scene anywhere in the world where there is a well represented Chinese Population, they will cook your GOOSE.


More than that, they'll cook it better than anyone else knows how. There is no end to the multi-varieties of preparing geese, Chinese style. The boil it, bake it, deep fry it, saute it, press it, char siu, five spice it, you just cannot beat them at this game.


Let's hope they don't cook ours. The recent incident over Hainan Island had better not be a precursor of things to come. Whether you're aware of it, or not, these are tense times between two major World powers.

The fabled Canton

by VTShounen

Brief lesson for the uninitiated - Guangzhou is the capital of Guangdong province and THE major city in the southern coast of China. It is located just up the Pearl River from Hong Kong, a distance that takes just about a couple of hours by train. The euro-imperialist name for Guangzhou was Canton, from which the term Cantonese - the dialect spoken in Hong Kong - is derived. Geographical proximity and a common language are but two examples of the inseverable ties between the two cities. But they look and feel completely different.

This was one of the few places I had traveled to as a child, and my recollections were limited to a few random brief flashes. To me it was just.. China. It was the only city in China I had gone to (Shenzhen wasn't much of a city back then). The two times I went to GZ in 1998, I saw a city that was quintessential China. Sure, lots of shiny skyscrapers now, but their attempt at ultra-modern architecture could not mask the prevalence of bicycles and smoky buses on dirty crowded streets that makes it so.. China. To me, at least, that's how it is, and remains.

Unless you're interested in understanding one of the main reagional subcultures of China, there is no reason to linger in this city - the river is not much of a geographical focal point, the parks are not that big or pretty, the museums are generally subpar, and historical monuments are few and far between. If you do stay though, check out the food!
