Canton and Guangdong

Canton or now known as Guangzhou, shares a lot of heritage and tradition with Hong Kong. We speak similar dialect, we share similar culinary culture. In fact, Canton was the international city of southern China, when Hong Kong was only an unknown fishing village, until a series of historical events drive the two cities on different development paths, but the high speed train brings the cities back to each other, making an easy 1 hour journey enjoyable. The area around Canton and Hong Kong in Guangdong are also worth visiting, full of natural beauty and culture, and many also connected to the high speed train.
