Guangdong(;Gungdng) is a province inon the border withHong Kong.

In the era of tea clippers, both Guangdong and its capitalGuangzhouwere often referred to on maps and in spoken English asCanton. This usage continues today but to a much lesser extent with the transliterated Chinese name being used instead. Other versions no longer used includeKwangtung. The food and language of the area are still known asCantonese. Much of what is associated with overseas Chinese food and culture has its origins here.

Guangdong borders the South China Sea and surroundsHong KongandMacau. Long a provincial backwater, the provinces economic fortunes changed dramatically when Deng Xiaoping initiated economic reforms in 1978. Home to three of the countrys Special Economic Zones (marked SEZ below, seeList of Chinese provinces and regionsfor an explanation) and to a burgeoning manufacturing industry, Guangdong is now the third richest province in China. It is also the most populous Chinese provinces, with approximately 110 million people, more than all but ten countries.

The major cities in Guangdong have been magnets for migrant workers from poor inland provinces since the 1980s. In many cities this has led to problems with petty crime and homelessness. It also means that Mandarin is increasingly widely spoken and many taxi drivers or service staff are more conversant in Mandarin than the local versions of Cantonese.

Many overseas Chinese, particularly those which emigrated before 1949, trace their roots to Guangdong, although many are from other coastal provinces such asFujianor the area aroundShanghai. The Chinese food most familiar to Westerners is basically Cantonese cooking, albeit sometimes adapted for the customers tastes.

Guangdong has a subtropical climate. Annual rainfall averages 1500-2000 millimeters and temperature averages 19C - 26C. Summers are very hot, humid and wet and there may be typhoons. By May the temperature gauge is easily in the 30s with the humidity and air pollution making feel even hotter. The best time to visit Guangdong is in the Spring or Autumn.

Mandarinis widely spoken, almost universally by educated people, especially in areas likeShenzhenandZhuhaiwhich have been built through migration from all across China.

The historic language of the region is stillCantonesewhich differs from Mandarin as much as French differs from Italian or Spanish. Cantonese orGuangdongrenpeople are extremely proud of their language (this applies to neighboring Hong Kong as well) and continue to use it widely despite endless efforts at Mandarinization.Cantoneseitself is more closely related to the language of the great Tang Dynasty than the more modern (circa Yuan Dynasty) Mandarin. Cantonese people worldwide thus tend to refer to themselves as Tong Yan (People of the Tang in Cantonese) rather than Han, the standard appellation for all ethnic Chinese. Note that there can be significant dialectal variations withinCantoneseitself, and theCantonesespoken in areas in the far Western reaches of Guangdong (and neighboring eastern Guangxi Province as well) (eg.Taishan) are only marginally, or sometimes even not mutually intelligible with the Cantonese spoken in Hong Kong or Guangzhou.Cantoneseis also the native language of the neighboring northeastern part of Guangxi province. Nevertheless, theGuangzhoudialect ofCantoneseis considered to be the prestige or standardized dialect, and is generally understood throughout the Cantonese-speaking areas. Note that in Hong Kong,Cantoneseenjoys official status.

At the coastal areas near the Southern border ofFujian, most notablyChaozhouandShantou, a variant ofMinnan(Hokkien-Taiwanese) known commonly asTeochew(the native pronunciation of Chaozhou) is spoken. Teochew is not mutually intelligible with Cantonese, but is mutually intelligible with the Xiamen/Taiwanese dialect of Minnan to a small degree.

Certain parts of the province are also home to Hakka communities, and they speak theHakkadialect, which is not mutually intelligible with Mandarin or Teochew. However the Hakka dialect is partially intelligible with Cantonese.

There are several large modern airports in the region:GuangzhouHong KongandMacauhave many international flights;ShenzhenZhuhaiandShantoucater almost entirely for domestic Chinese flights.

The area is also well connected to the rest of China by road and rail.

There are also many ports, mainly container ports handling massive freight traffic (2.4 million tons in 2003), but with some passenger services. In particular, there are ferries (mostly fast hydrofoils) connectingHong KongandMacauwith the neighboring Guangdong citiesShenzhenandZhuhai, and some even run upriver toGuangzhou. See the city articles for details.

Foreign nationals from 51 countries who transit throughGuangzhou Airportwhen flying between two different countries (for example, London-Guangzhou-Auckland) qualify for a72-hour visa-free stopover. For the purpose of the policy, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan are treated as international flights (for example, London-Guangzhou-Taipei would qualify). The name of the policy is a bit of a misnomer, as the 72 hour period actually begins at 00:01 after the day of arrival (for example, if you arrive in Guangzhou Airport at 09:00 on 1 January, you can stay until 23:59 on 4 January). During the 72 hour visa-free stopover, you are allowed to move freely within Guangdong Province. You must fly into and fly out of Guangzhou Airport. For details, visit theFAQs webpage (in English)of the official government website of the Guangdong Province Division of Exit & Entry Administration.

As elsewhere in China, there is an extensive rail network;Guangzhouis one of the major hubs. Rail is the main means of inter-city travel for the Chinese themselves, and many visitors travel that way as well. The system now includesfast bullet trainson some routes; unless your budget is very tight, these are the best way to go fast, clean and comfortable.

All the major cities have airports with good domestic connections; some have international connections as well. See the individual city articles for details.

There is also an extensive highway network, much of it very good. Buses go almost anywhere, somewhat cheaper than the trains.Tao Bus() operates coach services at competitive prices throughout Guangdong province. See theChina articlefor more. Driving yourself is also possible, but often problematic; seeDriving in China.

These are some tourists hot spots when they visit Guangdong:

By visiting these destinations, a visitor can gain an understanding of Chinas history and culture as well as experience the customs and cultural differences both between their own culture and China and between Guangdong and other regions of China.

Guangdong has a many restaurants, with Guangzhou in particular having a reputation as a diners paradise. Other than sit-down restaurants, bustling night markets provide an eclectic mix of inexpensive finger foods, snacks, and delicacies. These markets are filled with shops and food carts integrating the eating and window-shopping experiences. Night markets are usually very crowded with both tourists and locals.

The major cities of Guangdong are heavily infested with pickpockets, and anyone who does not look Chinese is a prime target. For some info on defenses, seepickpockets.

As with everywhere else in Mainland China, prostitution is illegal but common. However the city ofFoshanis the only jurisdiction in Mainland China that legalizes prostitution. But only erotic massages orHappy Endingsis legal. Homosexual prostitution is illegal and is known to be prosecuted.
