Tip: In Guangzhou, the translation forms of street names are not the same. Sometimes, you may find the street name is written in Pinyin but sometimes you can see the English name. It would be very complicated for the overseas tourists to understand. However, Guangzhou is doing the best to unify the translation forms of the street names. They will use the form of 'Chinese characters + English translation' to show the street names. For example, Liwan Lu will be written as Liwan Road. 'Lu' and 'jie' mean 'road' or 'street’; 'dadao' means 'avenue' or 'boulevard'.

Furthermore, now Yang Cheng Tong is not only can use in Guangzhou City, but can also use in other cities in Guangdong, such as Foshan, Zhonshan, Jianmen, Zhaoqing… So, if you visit Guangzhou frequently or stay in Guangzhou for some time, to have a Yang Cheng Tong will be convenient. (Yang Cheng Tong can also used in Railway, and buy in some shops.)
