Guangzhou, known historically as Canton or Kwangchow, is the capital and largest city of the Guangdong province, located on the Pearl River.
Located just south of the Tropic of Cancer, Guangzhou has a humid subtropical climate influenced by the Asian monsoon. Summers are wet with high temperatures, high humidity and a high heat index. Winters are mild and comparatively dry. Guangzhou has a lengthy monsoon season, spanning from April through September.
A maze of contradictions, Guangzhou's upscale malls and slums sit side by side. Taxis prove the least intimidating way to negotiate this sprawling city and its congested traffic. Tree-lined Shaiman Island, popular with prospective adoptive parents from overseas, is ideal for shopping, strolling or a meal. Qingping Market is a vast street market not for the faint-hearted. Cats, dogs and anteaters are among creatures slaughtered on the spot. Flowery Pagoda provides more peaceful contemplation.
