Who's Guangzhou for?

The home to authentic Cantonese food, Guangzhou is a place that merges the old traditions and historic sites with new bright skyscrapers, 13 metro lines and a busy lifestyle you’ll want in the third largest city of China. Guangzhou’s humid subtropical climate has mild winters of around 14°C (32°F) and summers of up to 39°C (102°F), so prepare to teach English in shorts and t-shirts for most of the year, with no need of bringing your heavy winter’s jacket.

The Sights of Guangzhou

Guangzhou has a lot of tourist attractions to offer and could keep you busy for a few years when teaching English. There are a variety of parks to visit, mountains to hike and even neighbouring cities that you could access via the high-speed train. When you get tired of the busy city life, venture out into the small villages to experience more rural China and traditional ways of living.

Canton Tower
