Coconut Water: Relief from the Heat
It’s often hot and humid in Guangzhou, and sometimes water just doesn't cut it. Fresh, ice cold coconut water is guaranteed to quench your thirst. Off to the side of the electronic mall in Gongding, a side street is filled with shops selling clothes and street food. A traditional style Chinese arch above the entrance welcomes shoppers to this busy street. About 50 yards down, you’ll come to a one-man coconut stand. Here you can find delicious relief from the summer’s heat. Buy a couple, because the cups are small, cheap, and you’ll be wanting more as soon as the first cup is gone.
