Guangzhou is a widely spread city that is not too vertically striking, with many sectors and a whole lot more people. And where there’s people, there’s food to eat!

Guangzhou is a very wet place, with regular light showers and high humidity. However, don’t let that get you down.

Durians are popular in China now, although you probably won’t find them for this price anymore.

The food is excellent, and the serving sizes are generous.

The cats also enjoy the local hospitality, and wherever they fit they sit.

Guangzhou has an old colonial sector on its own little island, where the rustic buildings are stark reminders of when the West had a foothold in the East.

Overall, Guangzhou has a decently relaxed feel to it, with a large gentrified area of classic buildings with an ageing population. If you venture into some of the newer districts and night markets, the energy is still very much alive, but this place clearly has a lot of history and it’s not going anywhere fast.
