Things to Do
Chinese New Year falls in the beginning or middle of February two out of three years. It is the most important traditional festival for Chinese people, and is the best time to experience authentic Chinese traditional culture. Guangzhou is one of the five best cities in China for the Chinese New Year holidays.
The Guangzhou flower fairs, full of various plants and blossoms, are the highlight of the holidays. They usually start three days before the Spring Festival, and climax on the Eve. Folk artists entertain the crowds, and local artists also demonstrate their skill and sell their paintings and calligraphy. The major flower fairs in Guangzhou are Xihu Flower Fair, Donghu Flower Fair, Liwan Flower Fair, and Tianhe Flower Fair. Guangzhou is sometimes called the "Flower City" in China for its blooming gardens all the year round. See more about Guangzhou's Flower Fairs>>
Fireworks and more: Have fun with fireworks, try holiday food and snacks, buy tourist souvenirs, and experience the customs. On New Year's Eve, a public display explodes over the Pearl River downtown.
Enjoy a Pearl River Cruise: Dine and see the highlights of the riverfront at the same time. During Chinese New Year, you can see the fireworks too. The buildings along the river are brightly lit up. See one of the world's tallest towers along the river.
See the Chen Ancestral Clan Academy: It is one of the top favorite sites for foreign tourists in Guangzhou. It is a museum in a building that is now a protected site for Qing Dynasty era architecture. Enjoy the gardens, seeing the decorative details on the many buildings and watching craftsmen create artwork on the grounds, and the quiet atmosphere.
Trade Fairs: In February there is the Sign China Expo and several fairs related to automobiles including the Guangzhou International Auto Motor & Electrical Appliance Exhibition.
