Guangzhou is one of those cities that you don’t really go just by thinking about it. As most don’t know about it. This is the city where you go to buy merchandise to re-sell. But it’s also a very nice city to explore with great Parks and a Zoo as well. Saw my first giraffe there.


Guangzhou is located in southern China, very close to Macau and Hing Kong.
