The Canton Fair

The Canton Fair is the largest trade fair in China... over 22,000 exhibitors and 180,000 buyers from around the world attend this event over a 3 week period. If something is made in China, there's a high likelihood that you will find it here: Electronics, Household, Electrical Appliances, Hardware, Tools, Machinery, Vehicles, Spare Parts, Building Materials, Lighting, Equipment, Chemical Products, Consumer Goods, Gifts, Home Decorations, Textiles, Garments, Shoes, Office Supplies, Cases, Bags, Recreation Products, Medicines, Medical Devices, Health Products, and Food.

These are a few photos of the convention center and the Westin Hotel (which is designed to look like a "peacock") next to the convention center. Apparently, this particular Westin Hotel is quiet for most of the year... the only exception being the Canton Fair. During that time period, it will actually be the most expensive and crowded hotel in Guangzhou... recommend avoiding that time period. Other than that, it's a very nice hotel.
