Guangzhou, the capital and largest of the cities in the province of Guangdong, is the third largest Chinese city and is a popular destination for many travellers. Shrouded by neon lights and a vibrant city center, Guangzhou is a bustling hub of activity and draws many comparisons to nearby Hong Kong. A cosmopolitan edge gives the city a distinctly modern flair and recent updates make Guangzhou an up-and-coming darling in the Southern part of China. While the city buzz provide energy, underneath the layers remains a traditional Chinese history with ample tourism options. Plan your vacation with lodging at one of IHG's many Guangzhou hotels, planned to provide a touch of home while traveling.
Looking for a hidden city gem? Explore Guangzhou's Shamain Island and the recently restored churches, villas and mansions sprinkled along the many hidden streets. Temples and gardens showcase traditional Chinese culture and give visitors insight into a time long before the city expansion. Walking may be the best way to see the city, as several of the more interesting street markets and malls are only accessible by foot. If you're lucky enough to embark during a Guangzhou festival it's an experience not to be missed. While there are several options throughout the year, the Canton Fair, held twice a year, is the largest trade fair in China and provides the most authentic experience.
What is a trip to China without sampling the Cantonese cuisine? Guangzhou is famous for its gastronomy and boasts the largest number of restaurants per capita in China. Visitors can find authentic fare amongst many of the smaller city streets, or venture into the downtown core to experience a more elevated eating experience.
IHG's community of hotels in Guangzhou ensure a friendly, clean and comfortable stay in many cases right within the city limits. Reserve your room at one of our Guangzhou hotels today and enjoy a comfortable room after exploring all the city has to offer.
