Things to Do

The Guangzhou Mid-Autumn Fest: This annual holiday is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival usually falls in September, but occasionally the public holiday is in early October. It is a full moon festival and a harvest festival. Moon cakes featuring the fruits and nuts of the season are the favorite festival food.

If you arrive around the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, you will be fortunate enough to enjoy moon cakes and beverages on board a Pearl River cruise. Hopefully the bright harvest moon will brighten up the river with silvery shimmers as you watch the colorfully and brightly lit buildings pass by.

Go on a Walking Tour: For some exercise in September, you can enjoy a city park or go on a walking tour of interesting sites. Shamian Island is a favorite sightseeing area. There is a park as seen in the picture at right. There are dozens of interesting buildings to see too that date 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. 

September Trade Fair: There is the International Mould and Die Exhibition. Guangzhou's 3-day visa free travel policies is an encouragement to foreign business people to attend the trade shows and come for short-term business trips.

Peak Travel Month

September is generally one of the three high travel months. If the Mid-Autumn Fest falls in the month, as it usually does, then there is a great jump in the number of Chinese tourists on those days. There is also a rise in travel at the end of the month for the October 1st Chinese National Day holiday, which is a week-long holiday for many people. During these holidays, flightstrains, and buses will be packed and accommodations booked up.
