"Guangdong - Speaking Cantonese" Guangdong Sheng by SLLiew

Guangdong Sheng Travel Guide: 1,997 reviews and 5,238 photos

Guangdong Sheng (Province) is one of the fastest growing region of Modern China partly due to the proximity to Hong Kong and industrious nature of the Guangdong people. Many have also in the past migrated to South east Asia and USA and have returned to help their home province to achieve quick economic prosperity.

Have travelled to several major towns in Guangdong. Guangzhou is the capital and Shenzen was the first special zone for manufacturing and trade with its border with Hong Kong. Similarly Zhuhai is next door to Macao.

Also went to nearby Foshan, Zhaoqing, Zhongshan, Dongguan, Humen, Taiping, Meixian, Chaozhou and Shantou.

There are many new factories with Taiwanese and Hong Kong investments as well as other countries. Yet there are still much cultivation of longan, lychee, mandarin oranges and tea in the hilly regions.

    Guangdong so far is the only part of China I have visited, and I was awed by the amount of construction and development going on there.
