Formerly known as Canton, Guangzhou is the third largest city in China and a major cultural and commercial centre for this growing economy. For over two millennia this hugely important city has been at the centre of trading in the region, and today is just as important on the global stage.
Book a flight to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a forward-focused city that still maintains its traditional values of courtesy, hard work and honour.
Surrounded by magnificent mountain ranges, its relatively remote location means that this remarkable city has developed a unique sense of identity and a very individual character. Its values are perhaps a little less conservative than other parts of China, and even its cuisine is distinctive, making it a fascinating destination for both business and leisure travellers.
One of the main landmarks in the city is Xiguan Residence, a perfectly preserved example of traditional Cantonese architectures from the late Qing Dynasty, and one home to the upper class residents of the city.
For a moment’s peace and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping area, rest a while in the stunning Yuexiu Park, the largest urban park in China with acres of beautifully manicured borders and wide open spaces.
In fact, this huge city is full of gardens and parks, including Yuntai Garden, situated at the base of Cloud Mountain and famous for its selection of rare plants and flowers.
The city is full of museums (note that most museums are closed on Mondays). One of the most important archaeological finds in China is the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King, with its thousands of jade tiles, while at the foot of Bayiun Mountain is the Guangzhou Sculpture Park, which displays work by some of the region’s best sculptors.
Flights to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways land at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, second only to Hong Kong as an air transport hub for the region.
Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Guangzhou please check the visa and passport requirements.
