Pearl River Delta Travel Guide

Getting Oriented

The Pearl River Delta is a massive triangle. Guangzhou is at the top and Shenzhen on the east corner. The area as a whole is just a bit too spread out for any one corner to make a good base of operations from which to explore the others. We recommend beginning at one corner and making your way around. Guangzhou is fairly dense, so leave yourself at least three days in which to soak it all in before heading down to Shenzhen, where you should spend a day and night shopping, eating, and enjoying the spa before heading to Hong Kong.
