Weather here is warm and humid, also often rainy. You won't need a jacket but will need an umbrella.

Plenty of eating places around, just go into any that catches your eye. Most of the big ones have menu in some sort of English. You might like to try big seafood restaurant at the river end of Haizhu Square (metro station, exit A, on the left past Landmark Canton Hotel). I think it's called Hang Xing, but I forget. Guangdong and Guangzhou is the eating centre of China.

What sort of shopping are you looking for? Beijinglu is a pedestrian street with lots of brand name shops. Or for actual department store, there's the Friendship store on Huanshizhonglu or Tee-mall and others at tiyuxilu metro station.

Train GZ-HK takes about 1h45

I don't know much about Guangzhou, but I have spent quite a bit of time in South China. I like to go to the restaurants that have many restaurants built like little kitchen areas, but under one roof surrounding the tables. If you don't know what to order off a menu, you can just walk around and see what people are buying. Often, each kitchen area has displays of their food specialty. You get a chance to see what you are going to get and you can try thngs that look interesting. It is a great way for the language impared to get a chance to try something different.

Maybe someone here could suggest a restaurant like this in the Guangzhou area.

Can I know actually what are Canton fair ? What can we find in that fair ?

Re: WHAT TO DO?????????

by gaolei

The fair is in the Pazhou convention center. You can take a subway that will let you off directly in front of the convention center. actually you get off at the station befor Pazhou. Ask your hotel.

The Canton fair is one of the biggest shows for sourcing things from China.

Canton Fair happens twic a year. The main venue is at Pazhou, although there are some in-town locations too. You need to register as a buyer in order to get in, which inevitably means showing your passport plus two photos. What a bore, just to get into a large exhibition space showing completely dull wares.

I went last year: there were far more exhibitors than there were buyers. Not surprising - who in Europe would want to buy such tawdry tosh?

Travel Tips for Guangzhou

Ice skating in sunny GuangZhou!

by MizL

This is Grandview Mall's ice skating rink on a Sunday in the summer of 2005. I guess the rink was still relatively new then, and that was why it was sooo crowded! But it was fun, I tell ya! I was the only one wearing a short skirt to skate though! I guess everyone came prepared to dump their bottoms onto the wet ice, but I just wanted to look pretty! Haha...

Malaysian and Singaporean food!

by jackiesg about Epicurean Cuisine (CLOSED!)

Update on 11 Mar 08: This restaurant was closed in 2008. Sigh...restaurants here sprouts and close down too often and too fast. Morale of the story: Eat while you still can, before it closes down again.

Joy to those who miss M'sian and S'porean food while living in GZ! Finally, I found a restaurant that sells M'sian and S'porean local delights like curry chicken(chinese type), Nasi Lemak, Char Kway Tiao, Hor Fun, Hainanese Chicken rice etc etc.

Beside the above, they also offer other dishes that's very difficult to find in GZ, like Sambal Kangkong, Sambal Sotong, Black pepper crab or prawns, some of the very favourites of M'sians and S'poreans!

I've tried many of the above and would say that the food is good. Although not fantastic, the cooking and taste is authentic enough and I like the variety they offered. As it tasted authentic, it may not suits the local chinese very much and so they also offered some local chinese dishes. Currently at the time of my writing, they are offering $18RMB set lunch which is very wellworth.

According to the floor manager, the boss is a M'sian and the cook is from M'sia too.

The restaurant is clean and bright and the service is above average.

What I'm most glad of finding this restaurant is that it brings in alot of M'sian and S'porean dishes which I can't find in GZ yet. :) Curry Chicken - Not hot enough but I like the thick gravy
Chicken Wings - Crispy on the outside and juicy in the inside
Nasi Lemak - the ikan billis and the sambal chilli, hard to find in GZ unless homecook!

Guangzhou - Entry to China

by albaaust

"Cheap way into China"

For us Guangzhou was an easy and cheap way into China from Singapore. We managed to get a Tiger Airways return flight Singapore - Guangzhou A$250.00!! From Guangzhou we then flew to Lijiang, Chengdu and Beijing.
