As the capital of the traditional Canton Province, Guangzhou is one of the best places in the world to experience traditional Cantonese (Yhe) shopping and food. Cantonese cuisine is so popular that it is now identified by most cultures as Chinese food when, in fact, it is just one of China’s eight cooking styles. Lower in fat and salt than the Western interpretation of Cantonese cooking, in Guangzhou you will discover the true roots of these much-loved traditional flavours. Mild, fresh and slightly sweet, Yhe food in Guangzhou has all the delicious elements of Western Cantonese food, without taking such a toll on the waistline.
As you may expect, the shopping opportunities in Guangzhou are many and varied. You can pick up a bargain in the huge, wholesale markets, where you will find clothing, cosmetics, furniture and technology galore. However, shopping for high fashion in Guangzhou won’t be so successful; instead, take a trip to Hong Kong, where you can take advantage of high-end, duty-free shopping.
Whether you are looking for incredible food, white-knuckle entertainment, record-breaking architecture or simply the vibrancy of traditional Chinese cultures, on your trip to Guangzhou, you will find it all, and more, in abundance.
