Book flights from Tbilisi to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways
On flights from Tbilisi to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways, experience the highest levels of service and comfort. Ergonomically designed, spacious seating provides you with all the room you need for relaxation throughout the flight, and you’ll enjoy a menu of fine cuisine, with an attentive crew looking after your every need.
Guangzhou is an attractive port city on the lovely Pearl River, and is not only an important commercial centre for the region but a magnet for Chinese tourists as well as foreign visitors. This is because it has some unusual avant-garde architectural features such as the Guangzhou Opera House, or ‘double pebble’ as it’s known because of its reflective and futuristic design. The Guangdong Museum is full of excellent exhibits and artefacts, and is something of a work of art, too, with a design based on the traditional carved Chinese box. Another top attraction is Chen Clan Ancestral Hall.
Arriving in Guangzhou
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.
