When you go to Guangzhou, then you have to eat dimsum, it’s a special food in the south.
Dim sum 点心 is a style of Chinese cuisine. It is prepared as small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on a small plate. Dim sum is generally considered Cantonese, although other varieties exist. Dim sum dishes are usually served with tea and together form a full tea brunch. Due to the Cantonese tradition of enjoying tea with this cuisine, yum cha 饮茶, which means “drink tea” in Cantonese, is also synonymous with dim sum. Dim sum traditionally are served as fully cooked, ready-to-serve dishes. In some Cantonese teahouses, carts with dim sum are served around the restaurant.

Our plan in Guangzhou is for shopping and learn to buy things from Guangzhou. At this time, buy things from China is really popular and I want to learn how to import from Guangzhou.
I have a friend that study in Guangzhou. Before, he study Chinese in Beijing for 1 semester then move to Guangzhou because he wants to learn about business import in there. So he will take us to touring. We stay in his dormitory too, because they offer 1 day rate just like hotel and it’s suitable our budget.
We walk around Haizhu Square 海珠广场 and see some interesting place too.

There are many cute stuff in there which you can use as souvenir and when you ask the price to the seller, they will ask you back, “how many do you want to buy?” Yes, because the more you buy, they will give you cheaper price.
We also walk around there and see this cathedral, Sacred Heart Cathedral.
