I was warned about traffic snarls in Guangzhou and especially cautioned that I should keep several hours on hand for the ride to the airport to catch my return flight. I got one day to walk about a fair bit and kept my eyes open for traffic. The driving style was perhaps a bit too aggressive for my liking but infrastructure-wise, things were quite good. I liked the elevated roads, main roads having several lanes and the use of trolley buses. I would have liked to ride the Guangzhou Metro, unfortunately I could not manage to make that happen.
By the way, I did not run into too many jams, definitely nothing like the one some people reported to be several kilometers long and lasting several days. Maybe I was just lucky.
