Guangzhou, customarily Romanized as Canton, is the capital city and the most populated city of the province of Guangdong in south ofChina. It is situated on the Pearl River, about 120 km northwest of Hong Kong and about 145 km north of Macau. Guangzhou has a historical past of over 2200 years and was a significant terminus of the sea-loving Silk Road and continues to function as a significant port and transportation hub even today.


Guangzhou is presently, the third most-populated city in mainlandChina, behind Shanghai and Beijing and is one ofChina's five Nationwide Central Cities. In 2015 the city's management area was approximated to have a human population of 13,501,100 and forms part of one of the most populous metropolitan cities on this Earth. In recent years, there have been a fast increasing number of international residents and illegal migrants from Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East and even from Africa. This has led to it being referred to as the "Capital of the Third World". The migrant inhabitant from other regions ofChinain Guangzhou was 40% of the city's total inhabitants in 2008.


Previously the only Chinese dock accessible to international traders, the city fell to theUnited Kingdomin the course of the First Opium War. No longer experiencing a monopoly after the war, it displaced its trade reputation to other ports such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, but carried on to serve as a significant entrepôt. In present day business, Guangzhou is best known for its yearly Canton Fair, the oldest and largest trade fair inChina. For the three successive years 2013–2015, Forbes graded Guangzhou as the best business oriented city inChina.
