Pocket Guide: Guangzhou Riverfront - Shamian Island Hotels

Pocket Guides: Guangzhou Riverfront Shamian Island

Formerly known as Canton, Guangzhou is the vibrant capital of the Guangdong Province and southern China's finance and commercial hub. Situated 75 miles from Hong Kong Harbour, Guangzhou was once a major port on the Maritime Silk Route. Dating back more than a century, Shamian Island, a quaint sandbank island on the Pearl River, was once an enclave for European and global merchants based in the city. It's now a charming part of downtown Guangzhou boasting wide European-style boulevards and ornate colonial mansions. Expedia features a variety of accommodation around Shamian Island, from cheap hotels and hostels to modern riverfront properties and two-, three- and four-star places to stay.

Where to Stay near Shamian Island

Covering an area 984 yards long by 328 yards wide, this quiet sanctuary overlooking the Pearl River Delta was once an important trading port during the Song and the Qing dynasties. Instantly recognisable from the ornate 18th- and 19th-century continental architecture, the tree-lined boulevards and narrow cobbled streets are a popular hangout with European expats. Visit the Lady of Lourdes cathedral, an imposing French chapel, explore the fascinating Shamian Library or just wander around on foot and sample one of the charming riverside bars and restaurants dotted along its southern banks.

Where to Stay near Restaurant and Shops on Shamian Island

As the home of Cantonese cuisine, Guangzhou is a popular place for dining out. While there are some excellent Cantonese restaurants on the island, its long international heritage means that you’ll also find a considerable number of restaurants serving global cuisines, too. Many restaurants on Shamian Island boast impressive riverside views, but if you want some of the world's best dim sum visit the nearby Liwan District.

To pick up a souvenir or two, Shamian Island is brimming with shops and stalls and is the ideal place to find gorgeous embroideries, jade jewellery and ancient Chinese antiques.

Whether you're visiting Guangzhou for business or pleasure, why not let Expedia's help you choose the best place to stay on your Guangzhou getaway.
