Here are some travel tips when coming to Guangzhou or actually traveling anywhere international:
1) Always get an aisle seat on the plane: you can get up and walk whenever you want that way you don’t need to bother the person next to you in order to get up
2) You should buy a neck pillow for when your on the plane. It really does help a lot!
3) When coming to china, always bring Canadian cash. DO NOT bring travelers checks. These people look at them as if they never seen one before! Took me about 1h to get everything done at the bank!
