07 Feb 2014

Customer Travel Tip: Come during spring festival - a fraction of the crowds but all of the fun.

Liked: It's such a cheap city, maybe more expensive than Beijing, but you never have to worry about going broke here. The people are usually nice, and during Chinese New Year you get some major attractions all to yourself.

Disliked: It's an average Chinese city which means no queuing, honking in the streets (but not much), dirty roads and so on. It's also so crowded, but so is any other Chinese city.

Travel Type:

Trip Type:
City break Shopping Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: An all day metro ticket was 20RMB and the metro is super convenient (if a little crowded at times) if you have a limited time in Guangzhou like I did. I would also recommend taking a walk down Shangxiajiu road, lots of shops and restaurants, and there is a little side street off here which is full of stalls selling pet fish and turtles, well worth a wander!

Liked: Nice big city, with modern facilities which sometimes lack in other areas of China in my opinion.

Disliked: It's not the easiest city to navigate around, although I suppose this is expected of a city of this size. I didn't have a map either which would not have helped.

Customer Travel Tip: Subway/metro ticket machines only accept 5 and 10 RMB notes - NOT 1 RMB notes so take some 1 RMB coins!

Liked: The museums, Yuexiu park and Nanyue Kings tomb.

Disliked: Still many exhibits in the museums that are only in chinese characters so not very interesting for those who cannot read the information.
