Guangzhou, known historically as Canton, is located in southern China on the Pearl River, about 120
north-northwest of Hong Kong. With over 12 million inhabitants, it is the third largest city in China
(after Shanghai and Beijing) and the largest city of southern China. In the month of November,
expected temperatures are between 15 and 24 degrees. Baiyun International Airport is a major
transportation hub with many national and international airlines (for instance, Air France, China
Southern Airlines, Emirates, Lufthansa, etc.). In addition, Guangzhou is easy to reach from Hong Kong
with its international airport.

Visa Information. For foreign participants, please
contact the nearest Chinese Embassy/Consulate to apply for a visa. You can
apply either for a TOURIST visa or for a BUSINESS/CONFERENCE
visa. The former tends to be easier to get (however, it might be that the
embassy requires proof of hotel and flight booking from you); the latter
requires a letter of invitation. You will get this official invitation
letter from the local organizers after you register. Please check with
your local embassy/consulate for the details of visa application since
they depend on the policies of the individual embassies.
If you are asked to give an address for your stay, please use:
ZiJinYuan Hotel, XinGang Road West 135, Haizhu District, Guangzhou,
P. R. China 510275, Tel:+86-20-84111889.
If you plan to travel to/via Hong Kong or Macau, the Tourist visa is
also sufficient, but please note that going from Hong Kong or Macau to
mainland China counts as entering the country, so a trip from Guangzhou to
Hong Kong and back will use up one entry of your visa.

- Shuttle Bus.
There are different lines of shuttle bus at the Airport, one of which just
