Among Malaysians, Beijing and Shanghai are probably ringing "more" bells than Guangzhou. Therefore, we would like to take the honor to introduce you the metropolitan city of Guangzhou or famously known as Canton.
Guangzhou is located in the Southern part of China, in the Province of Guangdong. The weather is not too hot neither too cold, hence it is known as The Flower City. This world class trading hub is very populous. It is estimated that there are 6 million people residing in the city. Geographically, Guangzhou city is part of the Pearl River Delta. The time zone is similar with Malaysia, UTC +8.
What is Guangzhou famous for? Of course, none other than the China Import and Export Fair or better known as Canton Fair. The international event was first initiated in 1957 and held twice a year, April and October. There is where manufacturers all over China gather to meet up with their prospective clients from around the globe. These time of the year are considered as "peak-season" and hotels rates will increase higher than usual.
Transportation system in Guangzhou city is very well interconnected. Local mostly travels via Metro and Buses. The underground Metro is very efficient, clean, very convenient and a "yuan-saving" way to travel around the city. More on Guangzhou Metro can be found here.
From Malaysia, we can reach Guangzhou by Malaysia Airlines and Air-Asia. The pit stop is of course the modern and lavish Baiyun International Airport in Huadu District. It takes around 4-hour journey from Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou. Due to the popular demand, Air-Asia has now increased the frequency from 2 to 3 flights travel daily from Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou, to and fro. The flight ticket can go as low as RM250 (return) and up to RM1,700 (return) for adult. It is wise to always buy the ticket during sale period. Register yourself at the Airasia.com and you'll be notified earlier when they are going to knock down the price.
