Guangzhou is a big city. The richest in China after Hong Kong and Shanghai. It's very modern with loads of elevated flyovers and all. It used to be owned by the British like Hong Kong and you can tell by the buildings. We stayed in a hotel which was close to the U.S. consulate and also the Vietnam one for our visas (whic cost $60!!). There are playgrounds for adults here too. Very bizarre. They call them fitness parks.
There's also a ridiculous amount of American couples here adopting Chinese babies. They are everywhere. It becomes a bit sick after you see more than 70 (we counted) and that was just in one day. Its very wierd.
We didn't really do much else in Guangzhou, just ate, slept and got tickets to fly to Hanoi. We decided to forget about Hong Kong - its just too expensive.
So there you go. Guanzhou in a nutshell. And I've one photo because I accidentally erased the rest from my camera. I hate when that happens.
And BYE BYE CHINA!!!
