International Credit Cards No Good at Time-honored Guangzhou Restaurants
Update: 4/25/2009 2:19:00 PM Source: Guangzhou Travel

Now that the 105th Canton Fair is in full swing, many foreigners are in town looking to experience some famous Cantonese cuisine. However, international credit cards are not accepted at many of Guangzhou's most time-honored restaurants, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.

One buyer at the Canton Fair named Danny had dinner at Lianxianglou Restaurant recently, but was surprised to find that this famous eatery could not process his international Visa or MasterCard ¨C only China UnionPay credit cards were accepted. "We seldom use cash," said Danny, who was stunned that he couldn't use his credit card.

"The reason why we haven't adopted international credit card payments is because the commission charges are much higher than the Chinese cards," said the manager of the restaurant. "The main consumers at restaurants like ours are the local Chinese."

However, the manager said they may eventually follow the trend to accept international credit cards.

Some reputable GZ restaurants that take credit cards:

Banxi Restaurant - international credit cards and China UnionPay credit cards
Guangzhou Restaurant - international credit cards and China UnionPay credit cards
Xiguan Shijia Restaurant - China UnionPay credit cards
Lianxianglou Restaurant - China UnionPay credit cards
Taotaoju Restaurant - China UnionPay credit cards
