The third largest city in China, Guangzhou is a thriving city of scenic destinations, cultural monuments, and great food.
Our residence is located in the old Guangzhou district of Liwan. Deriving its name from the picturesque Lizhiwan River, Citadines Lizhiwan Guangzhou is situated right next to this winding, 743 meter-long waterway that resembles a Venice canal. The residence looks out upon the charmingly antiquated streets of Xiguan, which offers a host of local delicacies and quaint knick-knacks.
A food lover's paradise, Guangzhou is also the homeland of dim sum. Start your mornings in a traditional dim sum restaurant for an authentic Canton experience. Explore Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street, a 1200-meter stretch that houses more than 300 shops. Featuring a blend of European and Chinese architectural styles, the street features some of Guangzhou’s well-known retail shops and restaurants.
Next, travel to the colonial Shamian Island, or pay your respects at Huai-sheng Mosque, one of the oldest mosques in the world. At night, head down to Bai Er Tan Bar Street for a tipple at one of the many bars and clubs, and soak in a different side of Guangzhou.
