Does anyone know if the migrant workers from different parts of China that come to Guangzhou are mostly coming from specific areas of China or are they just all from all different sections of China?

From all different sections of China, including HK, Macau, Taiwan(Taiwanese are not regarded as foreigners).


Migrant workers in Guangdong are mostly from the spicy provinces, with smaller amount from non or less spicy provinces like Northeastern China, Henan, Shandong, Shaanxi, Anhui, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Fujian and Hainan.


Spicy provinces include Sichuan, Hunan, Chongqing, Hubei, Guizhou and Yunnan.


The spicy food eaten by many from those provinces in Guangdong is a sharp contrast to the original cuisine of Guangdong and cuisine from non or less spicy provinces. Both spicy and non spicy food co-exist together.

Hunan and Jiangxi people are by far the largest migrant groups in Guangzhou.

From all provinces of China. My brother in law was a manager at a piano factory there.

The migrant have their own neighborhoods in Guangzhou and they are completely amazing. I can't describe in words how unique it looks and feels but if you go into one you will feel like you got transported to another planet.

Tons more fun than the modern steel and glass China.
