To the Fish Market! in Guangzhou, China

The fish market in Guangzhou, China is wholesale/retail put together.  It’s a wonder they were open during the Chinese New Year holidays when I went. Huge live turtles and shellfish as well as chopped crocodiles were the most impressive.  ^^



To Market! in Guangzhou, China

I was very surprised to find this local retail market open on the new year’s day in Guangzhou, China during my recent visit.  It was in the afternoon and I don’t think everything was open so not a lot of action going on but still impressively stocked with meats, fish, and vegetables as well as more curious variety of creatures such as crocodiles, live snakes, and Chinese softshell turtles.

Maybe because it was during the Chinese New Year or maybe it was just another weekend crowd.  Either way, the town of Chikan in Kaiping, Guangdong Province, China was bustling with people and mostly food stalls trying to attract customers.

Arriving in Guangzhou, China

So I visited Guangzhou, China at the start of the Chinese New Year this past weekend.  I booked my trip w/o knowing it was the holiday season but discovered that was the case at the end of last year when I was visiting Penang, Malaysia from my Grab (equivalent of Uber) driver.

Anyway, as I arrived at CAN, decorations suggested celebrations were underway but in the city it was business as usual in some parts.

Happy Chinese New Year!!

I only saw three.  Or I might have seen one more but it must have gotten away before I had a chance to capture it on camera.
