Reviews of Guangzhou

Capital of the South China province of Guangdong, the city of Canton (or Guangzhou) is the third most populated in the country after Shanghai and Beijing.

My suggestion:
To see the city from a different perspective, there's nothing better than a cruise at night on the Pearl River.

The beating heart of the Pearl River Delta megalopolis, Canton is largely open to the West and the rest of the world. Twice a year, the city comes under the spotlight when the Canton international trade fair is held, which these days is also followed by an international wine and spirits exhibition.

Considered by the Chinese to be the city with the best food, Canton is truly a flavor paradise and offers a delight for the taste buds. When it comes to places to visit in Canton, the Chen Family and Six Banians temples, Yuexiu Park, Shamian Island and White Cloud Mountain (Mount Baiyun) constitute some of the essential sites to see.
