Guangzhou, known historically as Canton, is located in southern China on the Pearl River, about 120 km 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.

How to get here.

  • From the Airport to the New Pearl River Hotel.

    1. Shuttle Bus. There are different lines of shuttle bus at the Airport, one of which just goes from the airport to the New Pearl River Hotel.

This line is bound for the New Pearl River Hotel, so you just arrive at the hotel when you get off at the terminal stop. It takes you about 50 minutes, and the price will be 25 CNY.

      Please note that the shuttle bus does not run after 23:00.
