Formerly known as Canton, Guangzhou is the capital of southern China’s Guangdong Province and one of the country’s leading industrial bases and manufacturing hubs. The Sheraton Guangzhou Hotel is conveniently situated in Tianhe, the city’s burgeoning central business district. Part of the Teem Plaza Development, we are steps from 158,000 square meters of shopping and entertainment, including a cinema, restaurants, and more. We’re also just ten minutes from Guangzhou East Railway Station, the key access point to Hong Kong, and a short drive from Baiyun International Airport (CAN).
Boasting the nickname “Flower City,” Guangzhou offers numerous scenic retreats, including the ancient Buddhist temple, the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees, and Yuexiu Park, a large city park home to three lakes and several monuments. Additionally, Baiyun Mountain offers inspiring views of the entire area, 17 kilometers north of the city center. Just minutes from the hotel, the Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower offers equally impressive vistas from its 450-meter-high observation deck and 18-meter-long open-air skywalk.
While undoubtedly a modern metropolis possessing exhilarating sites like Chime-Long Paradise—a large, bustling amusement park—Guangzhou is also rich in over 2,000 years of history and culture. It was the birthplace of ancient China’s Silk Road and remains well-known for its ivory carvings, jade and wood sculptures, Canton enamel pottery, and embroidery. See these treasures first-hand at local shops, the Guangzhou Museum of Folk Art, and the Guangzhou Provincial Museum, stopping afterwards to sample the city’s signature Cantonese cuisine.
