Guangzhou is one of the key financial and commercial hubs in southern China. Kept buzzing by a steady stream of business and leisure visitors, it’s a modern metropolis where dining and entertainment are big business – and casinos are an important part of the nightlife mix. Expedia offers a selection casino hotels in Guangzhou, including options right in the heart of the city.
Where to Find Casino Hotels in Guangzhou
Several of Guangzhou’s casino hotels are based in the Tianhe district, the city’s banking and trade centre. As well as on-site gaming, casino hotels here offer easy access to some of Guangzhou’s most important business and entertainment venues. Head to the towering CTF Finance Centre and ride the express lifts to its 95th-floor observation deck – the views are breathtaking. Or enjoy a traditional Chinese opera in the state-of-the-art Guangzhou Opera House, designed by award-winning architect, Zaha Hadid.
Casino Hotels Outside Tianhe
You’ll also find casino hotels further north, close to the Baiyunshan Scenic Area. Here you’ll still have easy access to Guangzhou city centre, but you’ll also be near the striking landscapes around Baiyun Mountain (also known as ‘White Cloud Mountain’). Take a cable car up to Maoxing Ridge for magnificent views of Guangzhou's glittering downtown, or explore the ornate Nengren Temple and the Guangzhou Collection of Inscribed Stone Tablets.
Other Attractions in Guangzhou
Head to the Haizhu District to visit Guangzhou's most popular visitor attraction. The 600-metre Canton Tower features an open-air observation deck, revolving restaurants, and a horizontal Ferris wheel with observation pods overlooking the city. Back at ground level, check out Guangzhou Sculpture Park, the largest sculpture park in China. It features sculptures from China, America and Europe, including works by Tang Daxi, a famous Chinese artist known for his patriotic scenes.
Fine Dining and Traditional Cuisine: Eating Out in Guangzhou
Guangzhou is the birthplace of Cantonese cuisine, and you’ll find ample opportunities to sample authentic local fare. Most Guangzhou casino hotels come with an on-site restaurant, but for the last word in authenticity head to Tianhe's Shipai Village, where bustling narrow streets are crammed with traditional family-run restaurants.
