Guangzhou is the capital of the province of Guangdong and sits on the bank of the Pearl River's White Goose Pool, a short distance from Hong Kong, Macau and Kowloon. During the Olympics of 2008, Guangzhou celebrated its 2222nd birthday with much fanfare. Looking for great history and sightseeing, the city was founded in 214 BC in the 33rd year of the Qin dynasty and offers cultural history and traditional South China culture known as Lingnan.
The Canton Fair is so named because Guangzhou was formerly called Canton and now boasts
twelve million residents. Guangzhou is an important trading port and was once the start of China's Marine Silk Road, thus the city became a link between China and other world cultures. Guangzhou offers comfortable weather year round, autumn runs from October through December with cool evenings and warm fall days to enjoy the Canton Fair.
