Nestled amidst lush mountains and meandering rivers, Guizhou captivates with its diverse geological formations. Distinguished as the sole province in China devoid of plains, Guizhou stands out as a premier destination for mountain tourism, boasting an impressive array of plateaus, peaks, hills, valleys, and river terraces. Renowned worldwide for its breathtaking karst topography, the region showcases awe-inspiring limestone landscapes of striking beauty and vibrant hues. Furthermore, Guizhou is home to a myriad of extraordinary natural wonders, including Asia’s largest waterfall, the world’s most extensive collection of sinkholes, and the meticulously sculpted Danxia landforms.

Guizhou not only boasts breathtaking landscapes but also cherishes the rich traditions of its 48 ethnic minorities, including the Miao, Dong, Buyi, Tujia, Yi, and Gelao.

Guiyang-Hong Kong Air Route Now Open, Enhancing Comfort and Convenience for Visitors from the GBA to Guizhou

On June 30, 2023, China Southern Airlines Guizhou Company officially launched the Guizhou-Hong Kong air route. The newly established connection will serve as a gateway for economic, trade, tourism, educational, and cultural exchanges and cooperation between Guizhou and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau GBA. It will not only expedite the growth and development of Guizhou’s aviation industry but also streamline travel between the two regions, enabling seamless journeys and fostering fruitful collaboration between the southwestern region and the GBA.

Previously, travelers from Guangdong, Hong Kong, or Macau to Guizhou faced the choice of enduring a lengthy journey by rail or car, or taking a flight with at least one layover. Hong Kong and Macau visitors had to first travel to Shenzhen or Guangzhou by train before transferring to the airport, resulting in extended travel times. However, with the introduction of the Guiyang-Hong Kong air route, travelers from the GBA now have a more convenient and comfortable way to reach Guizhou. This means they can embark on their summer adventures seamlessly, immersing themselves in the warm and welcoming ambiance of Guizhou all the more quickly.

Guizhou is currently making rapid strides towards becoming a world-class cultural and tourism destination. With a strong focus on enhancing both quantity and quality, the province is determined to propel itself to new heights. Embracing the opportunities for global development, Guizhou is actively contributing to the establishment of a high-quality cultural and tourism ecosystem. We extend a warm invitation to the enthusiastic travelers from the GBA to embark on an exhilarating summer adventure in Guizhou. Immerse yourselves in the stunning landscapes, witness the vibrant local customs, and experience the sheer beauty that Guizhou has to offer.
