If you’ve ever been to the Canton Fair you will already have a pretty good idea what it is like. We’d sum it up in one word: gruelling.
OK, we admit, our foray, from both perspectives as participant and visitor, was over a decade ago when the fair was at its zenith. Today it has, perhaps, lost some of its lustre and bluster if the head count in the below pictures are any guide.

Sure, it’s fair to say expos and the like are usually pretty busy, frantic places with buyers and sellers constantly engaged in debate, discussion and negotiations. There is an atmosphere of excitement, tension, exhilaration and anticipation. But all in moderation. Our memories of Canton Fairs were of endless days, of endless people, of endless takeaway meals eaten on the go, a continuous cacophony of head splitting sound and video, very sore feet and aching legs!

Today though, for those who have never had the pleasure, we bring you an image gallery inside this years China Canton fair- courtesy of Caixin Global. And true, our head image is not Canton Fair, but, the gallery is.

So please relax, put your feet up, take a cup of tea and and enjoy the Canton Fair from the comfort of your arm chair.

Around 12,000 sellers showcased their products at the second phase of the Canton Fair, which is devoted to daily consumer goods and home decorations. Held in the southern metropolis of Guangzhou every spring and autumn, China’s twice-yearly trade exposition serves as a venue for domestic companies to market their products to foreign buyers. The first phase, which ran from April 15 to Wednesday, received more than 1.26 million visitors. A third phase will kick off on May 1 featuring textiles and health care products
