Guangzhou Visit I

Guangzhou (广州) or Canton is the capital of Guangdong province. I have been to this city a number of times, and this time to visit the Canton Trade Fair. It is a twice a year event, held during April and October period.

 Cantonese Food

Guangzhou is the home of Cantonese food. People here are crazy about food, and spend lots of time in restaurant. I love the roast goose and roast duck being offered here. The wanton noodle is another favourite of mine. However, I did not have the chance to taste it this time in GZ. Fortunately I did manage to have an excellent bowl of wanton noodle at the HK airport food court.
