By far and away the largest trade fair in China, the Canton Fair has been held twice a year in Guangzhou since 1957. It is renowned among trade fairs in China for hosting the widest range of products, the highest attendance, and the largest number of business deals. The Canton Fair is a must for anyone looking to go into the trade business in China.
This five-day guided tour package combines a one or two days at the Canton Fair with time visiting some of Guangzhou's best-known sights. While you are at the Fair you will be accompanied by your guide, who will act as your translator. Guangzhou has been a hub of international trade and commerce for centuries and this history is reflected in its colonial architecture. Witness this architecture for yourself on a walking tour of peaceful, pedestrianized Shamian Island, a former foreign concession. You'll also get a chance to learn about Guangzhou's local history at the fascinating Temple of the Six Banyan Trees and the architecturally-stunning Chen Clan Academy. Finish your day with a cruise on the Pearl River to get a different perspective on this dynamic city.
