When is the best time to fly to Guangzhou?
The humid subtropical climate of Guangzhou has wet, hot summers and cooler, sunny winters. The rainy season generally takes place in May and June, so avoid visting during these months if you don't want to get too wet! However, there are several advantages of visiting during this season, as you may be able to get cheap flights to Guangzhou and the rain tends to clear away any dust and smog that has accrued in the air.
The best (and more expensive) time to take a flight to Guangzhou is during autumn, October and November, when conditions are extremely pleasant. Bright, clear skies and dry, cool days are typical at this time. Many people book flights to Guangzhou during this time, particularly during the National Day Holiday, when flag-raising ceremonies, dance and song performances and celebratory fireworks displays take place. November is also the perfect time to visit Guangzhou if you’re interested in tasting China’s ‘Eight Great Cuisines’. Guangzhou International Food Festival has become a famous tourism festival centred on food since it was established in 1987 and is sure to get your taste buds tingling, with delicious, unusual flavours.
Guangzhou is a fabulously rich and vibrant cultural hub located on the banks of China's beautiful and shimmering Pearl River. Finding out where to visit in this city is very easy, as it has been a tradition throughout the ages for rulers to designate 'Eight Sights of Guangzhou': i.e. the eight best tourist attractions. The various lists for the Eight Sights include the majestic 'White Cloud Mountain' park, the river, the amazing flora and fauna of the Nansha Wetland Park, and the towering Canton Tower. Another very contemporary highlight of the city is the Guangzhou Science Park. White Cloud Mountain is a fantastically peaceful and mysterious place for a stroll. The parks in this city in general are very elegant and are ideal for honeymooning couples to enjoy a quiet picnic, or for families to spend some quality time together. This city is also renowned for its exquisite temples and other religious edifices. Make sure to pay a visit to Huaisheng Mosque, for example, and the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees, as well as the stunning Sacred Heart Cathedral.
