Magical, ethereal and vibrant. The city of Guangzhou, also known as Canton, is a port city nestled near the northern bank of the Pearl River in southern China. It is in communion with nature and offers a heady mix of heritage and modernity. Visible through the overhanging tapestry of foliage one can come across rows of old temples and mosques. This mild and unhurried city conceals remnants of colonial rule, traditional dim-sum hangouts, and exclusive qilou shophouses. These lend this busy trading center of China an urban view. To top it all, the metropolis has a of myriad local shops where you can find your favorite Chinese electronics, toys, garments, watches, herbs, teas and much more at throwaway prices.
In spite of the redevelopment in the year 2010 for the Asian Games, much of the metropolis retains a calm, and non-frenetic stance. A foodies dream come true, it abounds with food joints serving delectable platters to suit all budgets. Guangzhou is safe and easy to get around with the locals possessing a friendly, unhurried and lively demeanor. If you see people wearing face masks remember one problem you may encounter here is air pollution. It is known as “The Flower City” with tree-lined streets, ivy-laden pedestrian walkways, and all along the canals and side streets there is a profusion of the floral blossoms everywhere.
