Cheap Areas to Stay in Guangzhou

The port city of Guangzhou has a long and colourful history. Set on the Pearl River, the capital of Guangdong province is a trade and transport hub that's as vital and vibrant today as it was in ancient and Imperial China. Guangzhou offers a vast selection of low-cost accommodations. One of the best locations for lodging is Yuexiu, where you'll be near major attractions like Yuexiu Park and Beijing Road. Or, you can stay in Tianhe, home to the central business district and an assortment of contemporary shopping malls. There are a few cheap hotels in the Beijing Road area, which is great for budget meals and historic sites.

Where to find cheap food in Guangzhou

Adventurous foodies have plenty of dishes to try in Guangzhou, since authentic Cantonese cuisine is known for its diverse and exotic ingredients. Dim sum is a staple, and you'll find all kinds of dumplings and rolls. Hit up Beijing Road for street food and sample local favourites such as stewed milk bean curd and tingzai porridge. Shangxiajiu Pedestrian Street is another worthwhile stop on your gastronomic field trips. It's a bustling row of street food stalls, teahouses, and popular, long-standing restaurants. The vibrant Huifu Snack Street offers a delightful, if rather overwhelming, variety of treats.

Cheap Things to do in Guangzhou

Yuexiu Park, China's biggest urban park, is a scenic, tranquil space with hills and lakes. It encompasses the 14th-century Zhenhai Tower, which houses the Guangzhou Museum, and the granite Five Rams Sculpture, known as the symbol of Guangzhou. The Mausoleum of the Nanyue King was an accidental discovery and is now hailed the most important of its kind in China. The king's jade burial suit is a must-see. Hike to the top of popular Baiyun Mountain and you'll be rewarded with fresh air and excellent views of the city. Alternatively, you can pay for a tram or cable car ride. There's also a small entrance fee to the park. Another way to escape the city's hustle and bustle is to visit Shamian Island, a former British and French concession, for quiet strolls amidst colonial buildings, old houses, and picturesque gardens. Of note is the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, which dates from 1892.

Cheap Ways to Get Around Guangzhou

Guangzhou has an extensive public transport network, which includes a metro system, buses, and ferries. You can get a reloadable transportation card that can be used on all 3, as well as in convenience stores and vending machines. There are also metro passes good for a day or 3. The metro has English maps and signs, and Line 1 is particularly convenient for sightseeing. Ferries are a cheap way to cross the Pearl River, and there are a few ferry terminals that are near tourist attractions. Uber is quite popular in Guangzhou, as it's much cheaper than taking a taxi.
