Luxury Spa Hotels near Guangzhou's Central Business District
Tianhe, Guangzhou's modern Central Business District is famed for its mirrored skyscrapers, sleek shopping malls and swanky five star hotels, many with state-of-the-art spas. While many visitors to the district are here on business, it also attracts sports fans to the Tianhe Stadium, a 65,000 seat arena built for the 1987 National Games of China.
Traditional Culture and Contemporary Design
After a day relaxing at your Guangzhou spa hotel, spend the evening enjoying a traditional Chinese opera at the avant-garde Guangzhou Opera House, designed by award-winning international architect, Zaha Hadid. A stunning modern edifice near the Pearl River, it's one of Guangzhou's most visited modern attractions.
Next to Tianhe is the colourful Yuexiu District, regarded as Guangzhou's culture hotspot. See the magnificent Five Ram Statue in Yuexiu Park, explore the province's Qin history at the Guangzhou Museum in the Zhanhai Tower, or visit the 2000-year-old tomb of Zhao Mo, the second king of Nanyue in the Mausoleum of Nanyue King, one of China's finest museums.
Dining Out in Guangzhou
As the home of Cantonese cuisine, Guangzhou offers some amazing dining experiences. Feast on suckling pig and freshly steamed dim sum along the narrow Canton streets of Liwan, or try local dishes such as stewed snake and crocodile at the legendary Fisherman's New Village restaurant in Panyu. Head to the Tianhe District for swish fine dining restaurants, or for a more traditional meal try one of the authentic family-run establishments in Shipai Village.
