Regional Info:
The district of Liwan is situated in the west of Guangzhou; a 30-minute drive from the modern Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and 20 minutes on the Metro from the Guangzhou CBD. Liwan District offers many opportunities for relaxation and cultural immersion. Guangzhou is the largest city and the capital city of the Guangdong province and the third largest city in China. The city is located on the Pearl River, about 120 km (75 miles) north-northwest of Hong Kong and north-northeast of Macau. Guangzhou has a humid subtropical climate and summers are hot and wet (the monsoon season lasts from April to September) and winters are relatively mild and dry. There are about 14 million residents in Guangzhou and Cantonese is the first language for about half of these residents, while the other half speak mainly Mandarin. In recent years, the city has developed a more cosmopolitan appearance with new shopping plazas, high rise buildings, a modern metro system and landscaped parks and road sides. It's a busy, modern and lively city, but parts of the city retain a more traditional charm with restored churches, buildings and private residences. Having a major airport and being so close to Hong Kong opens up a world of travel opportunities, from short weekend trips, to longer treks around Asia in the holidays. Guangzhou really is the perfect place to base yourself in Asia!
