Things to do in Guangzhou

With globalization encroaching on the cultures of regions all across the world, there are certain places that have managed to defy this trend. Guangzhou is one of those locations that have succeeded in preserving its distinct identity. Consisting of the blend of beautiful mountain ranges and old man made structures, the city houses a range of sites worth spending a couple days.

The best part about Guangzhou is that it eases the access to other tourist spots such as Hong Kong and Macau. Immediately after exploring it, one can move to those places to get an entirely different view of the world. In-fact, the dichotomy and the glaring contrast is what makes the adventure diverse and encompassing the display of more than one culture.

Whenever you plan to visit Guangzhou, keep the following places in mind.


  • 1

    Do Shopping

    If you are price conscious, do the shopping from the markets prevailing around Yuexiu Park. The more you give the shopkeepers an impression that you are leaving, the greater the amount of price they are going to reduce for you. It is as simple as that. Apart from this, the statue displaying goats jumbled together is a sight to watch. What makes it even more eye catching are the lush green trees lying behind it.
