GENERAL INFO.
GUANGZHOU

Jan.8.98



The first choice for a day trip to mainland China is Shinsen but there are several other destinations you might like to consider. One such town is Guangzhou. Shinsen was a small town until it was decided to be Special Economic District, on the other hand, Guangzhou is a city from old days. Now you will face so many underground construction and renovetion in the city, but once you walk into the small streets, you can enjoy atomospher of old town.
