Clothing and advice: Summer clothes will do such as skirts, T-shirts or shorts. Wear sun protection like sun block, sunglasses, and hats, and drink lots of water. But don't drink the tap water. The locals drink a popular herbal tea in the summer. They believe that it helps them cope with the heat. You can try it. It is recommended that you bring an umbrella especially when storms are expected. See the current weather and forecast>>

The Guangzhou Lotus Flower Festival: The festival is held in July and August in the Fanyu District. Visitors can not only see many beautiful lotus blossoms, but also watch artistic performances and taste some lotus products. The lotus plant is used as a food in China. There are hundreds of varieties of lotus featured, and hundreds of thousands of people visit the festival. It is one of the big flower fairs in the city that is sometimes called the "Flower City" of China because of the numerous flowers.

Go on a Walking Tour: We've described some good places to walk including Shamian Island that is a favorite sightseeing area. Shamian Island has a park as seen in the picture at right, and there are also many buildings from the time that Guangzhou had a foreign enclave in the 19th century. The buildings are a hundred years old or more, and they are fine examples of several Western architectural styles.
