Being such a big and bustling city, there is no shortage of
nightlife options in Guangzhou, from karaoke bars and cosy pubs to
cinemas, Cantonese opera venues and trendy nightclubs. Local
cinemas make for a good start to the evening - try the China Plaza
Theatre in Zhonghua Square or the Yonghan Cinema in Yuexiu. The
Guangdong Yueju Opera Theater, on East Dongfeng Road, is a good
place for visitors to experience some authentic Cantonese opera.
Another classic choise is to take a dinner cruise along the Pearl
River to see some of the city''s landmark attractions in the night
lights. There are many bars and pubs to be found on Bai''e Tan,
Huanshi Lu and Binjiang Lu - the city''s ''bar streets''. Popular
venues include Amigo, a French bar on Bai''e Tan, and the Yuexiu
Park golf club. Other trendy, late-night spots are the Velvet Club
on Huanshi Dong Road and the Bio Fashion Club on Yanjiang Zhong
