Why Guangzhou is China’s most liveable city

Guangzhou is one of China's best cities to call home – here's why.
With its internationally acclaimed dining scene, rich cultural life and serene natural beauty, the southern provincial capital of Guangzhou has much to offer. As one of the Chinese mainland’s four top-tier cities, it is at the forefront of modern living, yet simultaneously maintains a decidedly relaxed way of life. Locals are fond of saying that there’s always ‘plenty of time’ to get even the most urgent tasks done – offering a welcome break from the often frenetic pace of Beijing, Shanghai and nearby tech hub Shenzhen.
