Guangzhou is a great destination if you enjoy delicious food, and Dong Fang Hotel dishes up some fabulous local flavors at its four restaurants. Indulge in classic Cantonese dishes at Nan Guo Yan Yue, or mix it up with tastes of both north and south China at Jiang Nan Si Zhu. Discover Macanese cuisine at Macao Street, or feast on international fare at Café More. On a balmy evening, sip cocktails on the terrace at the Lobby Bar overlooking a koi carp-filled pond.
Nan Guo Yan Yue - Enjoy Guangzhou’s famous Cantonese cuisine at this all-day dining restaurant, outfitted with rich carpets and traditional wall panels. Come for an authentic dim sum brunch or try the curiously named Buddha Jumps Over the Wall at dinner.
Jiang Nan Si Zhu - Low lighting and sophisticated neutrals set the stage for a memorable meal that combines northern and southern Chinese flavors. Try specialties like crispy-skin Peking duck and Cantonese dumplings.
Macao Street - With its intriguing mix of Portuguese and Cantonese cooking, this buzzy eatery will have you wielding both knife and fork and chopsticks. Be sure to try the Serradura pudding, a delicious concoction of whipped cream and crumbled cookies.
Café More - Open for breakfast and lunch, this casual spot has an enticing buffet of Western favorites. There is an outdoor terrace for warm-weather dining and floor-to-ceiling windows looking over the gardens for cooler days.
Take a dip in the blue-tiled pool, shake off your jet lag with a massage in the spa or in an outdoor cabana, or find serenity among the frangipani and banyan trees in the hotel’s vast sub-tropical gardens. If you’re feeling energetic, have a session in the gym or head to the nearby public parks to stretch your legs.
For a dose of history and culture, wander a few blocks to the 2,000-year-old tomb of Nanyue King Zhao Mo in one of China’s finest museums, and then walk east to the 14th-century Zhenhai Tower to delve into the city’s fascinating past at the Guangzhou Museum. At night, head to the shops and restaurants in the vibrant pedestrianized district of Beijing Lu.
Dong Fang Hotel
Dong Fang Hotel is in the Liuhua Business Circle — the heart of commercial and cultural Guangzhou. Yuexiu Park, where locals practice tai chi and play mahjong, is a five-minute walk away, and the equally popular Liuhua Lake Park is a short stroll in the opposite direction.
The hotel is 19 mi / 31 km from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, and the fast-and-frequent airport shuttle stops right outside the front door.
Just a few minutes' walk from the nearest metro station, Dong Fang also has easy access to Guangzhou Railway Station — for connections to Beijing — and Guangzhou East Railway Station, where express trains whisk you to Hong Kong in less than two hours.
