Guangzhou

Our journey to Guangzhou was primarily business-oriented. It's renowned as the "world factory" for a good reason – it offers an extensive array of products, often at substantial discounts when purchased in bulk. Our experience with suppliers was exceptional; they not only provided convenient services like hotel pick-ups, dining arrangements, and factory tours but also maintained regular communication. However, the challenge we faced revolved around independently ordering food in restaurants. The menus posed a language barrier, and unfortunately, Google Translate didn't consistently provide appetizing translations.
