Agoda offers great rates on China hotels for the 108th Canton Fair
SINGAPORE (September 8, 2010)
Agoda, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Pricelince.com, today announces great promotional rates at Guangzhou hotels during the 108th Canton Fair.
Twice a year, the beautiful South China city of Guangzhou plays host to the China Import and Export Fair – the largest trade fair in the country. From October 15 to November 4 2010, more than twenty thousand domestic and international exhibitors will display goods ranging from women's fashion to bicycle parts to office stationery.
The Canton Fair is staged in spring and autumn each year and held in three phases, each phase showcasing a different set of products. For the 108th session, the first phase will be held from October 15-19, phase two from October 23-27 and phase three from October 31 to November 4. The 107th session attracted roughly 204,000 overseas buyers and enjoyed a turnover of more than USD 34.3 million. The 108th session is expected to be just as successful.
Guangzhou's history as an international trading port makes it a fitting place for the Canton Fair. From the early 1500s, the Portuguese used the harbor as a point of foreign trade and by the mid-1700s Guangzhou was a port of global importance, with ships from Spain, India, Holland, America and Australia trading there.
Outside the exhibition halls, Guangzhou has a wealth of culture and history for visitors to explore. October is one of the mildest months in the province, making it the perfect time to take in some of the city's unique architecture, like the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees or the French concession-era buildings of Shamian Island. Guangzhou is also famous for its cuisine – local Cantonese delicacies include roast goose, suckling pig and dim sum.
Delegates attending the Canton Fair can take advantage of Agoda's low hotel rates to stay in Guangzhou a little longer and enjoy an exciting cultural exchange as part of their business trip. The below hotels are all offering special rates for the duration of the Canton Fair, and offer excellent business facilities for both domestic and foreign delegates.
