Trip Summary

Chinese Culture, Gourmet, At a Glance

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 having the widest range of products, the highest attendance, and the largest number of business deals. The Canton Fair is a must for anyone interested in Chinese trade and business. This three-day guided tour combines two days exploring the Canton Fair with visits to some of Guangzhou's best-known sights. While you are at the Fair, you will be accompanied by a 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 ancient Chinese history at the world-famous Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King and take in panoramic views of the city from the top of Canton Tower.

Please note that the Canton Fair takes place twice a year in the spring (usually mid-April to early May) and autumn (usually mid-October to early November).

Every one of our package tours can be modified according to your preferences. Please ask your agent if you'd like to make any changes to this itinerary.
