Founded in 214BC, Guangzhou is the busiest trade and transport hub in China, and the country's third-biggest city after Beijing and Shanghai. While Guangzhou is often just passed through after travelers disembark at Guangzhou Baiyun International (CAN), the city is a destination in its own right. It's a beguiling blend of the old and new: you can visit an ancient park, imperial tomb, or colonial villas while also taking in futuristic architecture and soaring skyscrapers. What's more, booking cheap flights to Guangzhou with Travelocity makes the trip more affordable than you thought.
Hotels near Baiyun International are the obvious choice when arriving straight off Guangzhou flights. The airport itself is some 17 miles from the city center, and there's a good transportation network, with cabs, six express bus lines, and 10 airport shuttle bus services, as well as the subway (Line 3). You can also take buses from Baiyun International to other cities across the Guangdong province. Once you get into town, there are numerous long-distance bus services and three railway stations to help you get around.
A vacation to Guangzhou is likely to be about shopping -- for everything from clothes and electronics to tea, toys, and herbs -- and eating. In fact, Guangzhou has more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in China. The birthplace of Cantonese cuisine, it's the best place to immerse yourself in authentic sweet and sour pork, dim sum, and won ton soup. When city life is too much, head for one of the peaceful surrounding villages, some dating back to 960AD. Or go birdwatching in Nansha Wetland, a haven for migrant birds from as far away as Serbia. In town, visit temples, cathedrals, mosques, markets, and the Pearl River -- perfect for an evening cruise.
