Shamian Island is nice to chill on a wkd, little shops and restaurants all around, its a little crowded and its hard to get a taxi if you go after 3 PM, will recommend it before that time, you can also rent a bike to go there and then back from the river side.

洋館の立ち並ぶこの地区で一番素敵な店舗だと思います。 店内は広く二階ベランダでも着席できるので、少し南国気分です。 这个地区中,最好的咖啡店。里面有很多面积。在二楼可以坐。 二楼的外边也可以。在那个时候,感觉在南国的心情。 This is the best cafe in this district. It has second floor where we can drink and eat. We can also use teraace. Sitting terrace makes us comfortable as if we were in tropical countries.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Guangzhou you will find this nice and relaxing Starbucks in Shamian island. Pop in for a coffee and cake then sit back and watch the world go by.

Starbucks is Starbucks, but this one could very well be the nicest in Guangzhou. You can sit outside, on the porch or inside a beautiful old colonial house. ShaMian is a place to relax ... except on the weekends when the crowds of locals come to enjoy the island and the traffic becomes crowded.

Yes, there are LOADS of branches of Starbucks in Guangzhou, that's for sure, but nothing beats chilling out with an iced coffee on a hot, humid day at the Starbucks on Shamian Island. Take a cab to White Swan Hotel, then walk out of the hotel's rear and it's just 5 mins walk, though be warned it IS a popular... More

Shamian island is a nice visit to past times. It takes you away from the buzzing crowded city into a place that is picturesque reseembling past centuries. Most of the old houses had been renovated and now tell about their gloomy times. Restricted car access, old trees in the park and a promenade at which hobby musicians sing and play... More

After a long day of wandering Shamian island, we grabbed some cappuccinos and enjoyed them on the second floor balcony looking out at the rain and the lovely old buildings and streets. It's the nicest combination of "comforts of home" mixed with "it feels like I stepped back in time".
