After spending several months in the Philippines I decided to check out something a little different. China sounded very interesting as I had met several travelers that had just come out of China....At the time it seemed like things were opening up. Back then there were only select cities that could be visited without a special "Travel Permit" This is all but history now I believe. Guangzhou was my first city to visit in China and it opened my eyes to the wonderful people,sights and tastes that China had to offer!! Sadly I didn't take very many photos here....
WARNING!! As with all of my other China pages all of the stories , tips etc...are all based off my trip of 1987 so all prices quoted and places that I stayed at or ate at or visited Could/Will be different. I just want to share them with you as I believe China is a destination for everyone!!
- Pros:Close to Hong Kong, Great Attractions , Yummy Food!
- In a nutshell:Hope you can go!!
If your stomach gets queasy from watching animals get butchered before your very eyes do not visit the Qing Ping... more travel advice
Renting a bicycle would be a cool way to get around Gaungzhou. I didn't rent one here but I did see a couple of places... more travel advice
