Guangzhou, known historically as Canton, is located in southern China on the Pearl River, about 120 km north-northwest of Hong Kong. With over 12 million inhabitants, it is the third largest city in China (after Shanghai and Beijing) and the largest city of southern China. In the month of November, expected temperatures are between 15 and 24 degrees. Baiyun International Airport is a major transportation hub with many national and international airlines (for instance, Air France, China Southern Airlines, Emirates, Lufthansa, etc.). In addition, Guangzhou is easy to reach from Hong Kong with its international airport.
