Hong Kong to Guangzhou

View SE Asia & India on asprey's travel map.

Another early wake-up marked the start of another travelling day. A short 3-hour bus ride took us over the boarding into China and to the province capital of Guangzhou. Our first impression was of quite an uninspiring industrial town but it was our only route out of Hong Kong. We’ve travelled through many towns in China and loved most of them but this place seamed different, it had a kind of Eastern Block Cold War feeling about it. What was supposed to be the richest city in China just seemed a bit… rough.

On the good side our hotel was great, we’d booked it through hostelworld.com who are famous for forgetting to tell the hotel about your booking, so after a short bilingual argument we checked into our room and collapsed into the granite-hard bed
