World ? Asia ? China ? Guangzhou

Guangzhou: Introduction

Guangdong Province, 163km (102 miles) NW of Hong Kong, 165km (103 miles) NE of Macau

Guangzhou has recently become the workshop of the world. In and around its satellite cities, there are more assembly lines, factories, and mass production than anywhere else on the planet. Visitors seeking nature, history, or even culture are going to be sorely disappointed as Guangzhou is all about one thing -- profit. Even so, this massive concentration of commerce provides plenty of interesting color for those who know where to look. Ignore all those remarkably dull sights glorifying the revolutionary credentials of the city and seek out instead what the Cantonese currently have passions for: business and food.
