Stay near the Cultural Sights of Guangzhou
Guangzhou is not all about fast-paced business. The centrally located Yuexiu district is regarded as the cultural heart of the city. Formerly known as Canton, Guangzhou’s fascinating history dates back to the Qin dynasty. Explore it all wandering around the ancient artefacts in the Guangzhou Museum in Yuexiu Park’s tiered Zhanhai Tower. Or see the 2000-year-old tomb of King Zhao Mo, leader of the Nanyue Kingdom in the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King, one of China's best museums.
What to Eat near Guangzhou’s IHG’s Hotels
The birthplace of Cantonese cuisine, Guangzhou has some of China’s finest restaurants. Head to the Tianhe district to get a high-end Canton experience. But for a traditional dining experience feast on traditional wonton noodles and stewed crocodile in one of the low-key eateries which line the narrow, Old Canton streets of Liwan. Bargain hunters will love to trawl the bustling wholesale markets of Yide Road or pick up some excellent electronic or fashion deals at the Beijing Lu Shopping district.
