Guangzhou. Capital of business and culture
Canton, or Guangzhou in Chinese, is the largest coastal city in South China, and the third largest city in the country, after Beijing and Shanghai. Capital of Guangdong Province, at all times a flourishing commercial center, it is definitely one of the most prosperous cities in the country. Chaotic and lively, it unquestionably provides numerous opportunities for you to enjoy yourself and relax after the fair, and to return home with a full stock of memories and photographs. Located on the Pearl River delta, the city lies just a few kilometers from Hong Kong (easily reached by train or bus); this strategic position has guaranteed Guangzhou the role of strategic port and business capital for hundreds of years.
Regarded as the culinary capital of China, the cradle of Cantonese cuisine (Yuecai), here there are more restaurants per person than in any other part of China. There are only a few other cities in the world where you can savour such unusual and sophisticated taste sensations.
