This was an amazing 6 months spent here! It's end of 2013 as i write this but i have been back here 2 times since leaving. Recent trip pictures posted below!
My first time here i ended up hanging around for 6 months and teaching english. This was in 2004/2005, All my reviews are done from that trip while i was living there!

Big city wise this is my favorite city in China. Just so much to do, the streets are so spicy. I loved every minute of my time here, can't wait to return and spend more quality time here.

This is our appartment complex in Guangzhou. Pretty sweet place with everything in it. We have been paying about $280 Canadian a month which is nothing, plus its fully furnished. Most homes here come fully furnished.

    I loved your pics of GZ's streets. I miss GZ so much and seeing your streets makes me happy that someone has captured them so nicely.

    I've been in GZ for the last several months... I love the Latin Grill House in Tian He. It's just like dining out in Rio. Everyone says Japan Fusion is good, will have to try it sometime...
