Located in one of the fastest developing regions in the worlds, the bustling neon-lit streets of Guangzhou in southern China are a consumer's delight, boasting fantastic shopping as well as myriad restaurants serving the city's famous Cantonese cuisine.
Set out from your accommodation in Guangzhou to Beijing Road, a frenzied shopping district in the town centre. A mix of Hong-Kong labels and local brands are available from the amazing variety of stores and shopping malls lining the pedestrian-friendly street. Located in Tianhe Road, the gigantic Grandview Mall offers Guangzhou hotel guests a superlative shopping experience.
Between shopping excursions, hotels in Guangzhou can organise transport to the modern Xiangjiang Safari Park. The zoo's animals include pandas, golden monkeys, tapirs and the world's largest collection of endangered white tigers.
Dotted with ponds and lakes, the green hills of the Dafushan Forest Park are a relaxing day trip from any Guangzhou hotel.
The Cantonese cuisine of Guangzhou is renowned for its delicate flavours and fresh produce with a sparing use of spices and thick sauces. No stay at a Marriott hotel in Guangzho is complete without sampling some of the city's hallmark dim sum (yum cha), with its sumptuous dumplings, and other small dishes.
