Accommodation near Guangzhou’s Canton Fair
Twice a year, in spring and autumn, thousands of exhibitors and more than 165,000 business people travel to Guangzhou for the China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair. The largest trade fair in China, it’s held in the vast Pazhou Complex on Haizhu, an island in the Pearl River. Use Expedia to choose from the number of business hotels very near the Canton Fair.
Across the river is Tianhe, Guangzhou's modern Central Business District dominated by towering skyscrapers, high-end shopping malls and business hotels. Take a ride in one of the fastest lifts in the world to the 95th floor of the CTF Finance Centre for far-reaching views of the Guangdong Province.
Or after a busy day trading, relax at a traditional Chinese opera in the modern Guangzhou Opera House, designed by the award-winning architect, Zaha Hadid.
Exploring and Eating in Guangzhou’s Business District
Once an industrial area, Haizhu now boasts some of the most expensive waterfront real estate in the province. After a day of business meetings, clear your head with a stroll around Haizhu Lake, Guangzhou's stunning natural wetlands park known as the green lung of the city.
Guangzhou is the true home of Cantonese cuisine and every neighbourhood serves up a smorgasbord of treats, from tender suckling pig and dim sum to stewed snake. While the Tianhe district boasts the city's best fine-dining restaurants, for a more traditional experience head to Shipai Village, Guangzhou's largest urban village, where bustling commercial streets are bursting with authentic family-run restaurants.
Whether you're looking for budget, mid-range or swanky business hotels close to the Central Business District or the Pazhou Complex, use Expedia to book your next China business trip.
