Guangzhou is the southern most part of China. Its more of an industrial town. Depends on what you wanna shop. I would suggest you to go to Shenzhen, which is about 4-5 hours drive from Guangzhou. Shenzhen was developed as an Economic development zone to counter the notion of HongKong being China's gateway to the world. You name it and you get the exact replicas of the best brands in the world right in Shenzhen and at tenth of their cost. Quite a planned city where you can afford 5 star hotels at the cost of our 3 stars!

The best would be to include HongKong as part of your itenary, since its just a train ride into Hongkong from Shenzhen and takes about 5 hours.

cheers, vijay

I echoed what Vijay had said...don't miss out Shenzhen and Hong Kong in your itinerary for Guangzhou. It is just a train ride away and you get to see a totally different / vibrant city!!!

What you can find here are lots of "branded" goods from electronic to fashion wear...as the tour guide once told me....all things can be fake except the thieves !!! Be extra careful when handling cash!!! You might not realise the change from the taxi driver and the restaurant are fake notes. It is advisable to take down the serial number of the big notes when you give it to them (2 friends visited Guangzhou and told me the unlucky experience that they had.)

One thing I enjoyed most is the foot reflexology, value for money and it is very good for health. Sample the authentic Chinese food is a MUST !!!

You will enjoy the trip Aditi! ENJOY CHINA :-)
