PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG.
I wanted to visit Garden Hotel cause when we first visited Guangzhou in 1986, we stayed in this hotel but this trip I did not stay at Garden Hotel cause I wanted to stay near Pearl River and also the hotel was cheaper over there hahaha.
So much changes, the streets are so much cleaner and not dusty and gone are the hundreds of big black bicycles, they can now afford luxury cars and traffic jam is now a common sight.
I cannot recognized the interior of Garden Hotel anymore except for the reception area. The big beautiful panel at the reception is still the same while everywhere in the hotel had gone for major renovation.
We had dim sum lunch (very late lunch) at Garden Hotel.
Not much choices of dim sum left cause we were very late almost 2 pm. We check out of our hotel Canton Landmark at 1 pm and left our luggage at the hotel's lobby for safekeeping as our flight was about midnight and took the metro to Taojin Metro Station to Garden Hotel (very convenient - the station was just infront of Garden Hotel).
First time I had this deep fried har gow
Deep fried spring roll
Steam har gow
BBQ pork bao (Char Siew Bao)
Glutinous Rice wrapped in lotus leaves
The dim sum dont costs much but the tea was expensive. Do check the different type of tea. We had chrysathemum tea at CNY25 per person although they come in a pot they counted as per head but have free refill to the teapot. They have even more expensive tea. Do ask for the tea menu if unsure what to order.
There's a 15% service charge to the bill.
