Guangzhou is situated in southern part of China. Guangzhou is an important city and business centre. When we visit Guangzhou, we really cannot imagine how big is Guangzhou, even the Railway station is so crowded and big made us scared too. Anyway, Guangzhou food is very good and have many different kinds of Chinese food.
