One comment on “Guangzhou”

Guangzhou is a huge city in southern China. It is reasonably expensive to live, as an expat, but has quite a large expat community downtown with some decent western restaurants and bars. Local food and life is cheaper, but the Cantonese food can be bland and a little boring. People are not so friendly as other parts of China, such as Sichuan, for example.
