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.

 

For centuries, Guangzhou (formerly known as Canton), was an important trade harbour that connected China with other countries along the Silk Road. Today, it continues to live up to its economic potential as one of China’s four financial hubs.

 

Partially isolated by mountains, Guangzhou is teeming with both manmade and natural attractions. It also has an eclectic mix of old and new cultural influences, from ancient temples to imperial tombs. Fly to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways and explore the largest city in the Guangdong Province. 

 

Check the price of flights to Guangzhou further below and book Economy or Premium Class flights to Guangzhou with Qatar Airways to discover the city that was the cradle of revolutions and reforms that profoundly affected the face of modern China.

Flying from Nairobi

Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is the largest airport in Kenya and is a major hub for both commercial and civil air transport in East Africa . It is named after the country's first president and prime minister, and serves the country’s capital city. 

Efficient and friendly, passengers flying from Nairobi with Qatar Airways will find this an excellent start to their journey, with friendly staff, good facilities and a smooth, hassle-free departure experience.

Transportation and parking

Travel from the capital is reasonably easy to arrange. Official taxis, operated by Kenatco, take approximately 20-30 minutes from the centre of Nairobi to the airport, although during busy periods this can double. 

An alternative to taxis are the airport shuttle coaches Citi Hoppa (distinctive yellow and green vehicles), although advice is that travellers book an official taxi as their first choice. Parking at the airport is limited with just 900 short-term and 100 long-term parking spaces in total.

Arriving in Nairobi

The airport is currently undergoing major redevelopment, with a new terminal scheduled for opening in 2016. Currently, all passengers flying from Nairobi with Qatar Airways leave from the Departures area of the old terminal.

 Note that current security measures in Nairobi are exceptionally tight, so it is highly advised that passengers arrive at least 2-3 hours before their flight is due to board to clear check in and security procedures. 

Facilities and amenities

There are no business facilities at the airport, although this may be addressed once the new terminal opens. A VIP lounge is available for business class and first class travellers.

Paid-for Wi-Fi access is available throughout the terminal, and an internet café in the Departures area is also open for passengers. A restaurant is located on the fifth floor, and a café is open in Unit 1. 

Additional restaurants and drinks outlets are located in Unit 2, and cafés and snack bars can be found in Unit 3. Numerous retail outlets provide passengers with a good choice of African goods and souvenirs, luxury goods, Duty Free and accessories.

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.

Tourist attractions

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.

Travel considerations

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.
