GUANGZHOU, CHINA--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2014) - The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou recently announced an exciting new partnership with Hong Kong's Kehilat Zion Synagogue. Designed to accommodate the spiritual and gastronomic needs of Jewish travelers arriving for the 116th Canton Fair, this luxury hotel in Guangzhou will open a temporary synagogue and glatt kosher restaurant on property. The unparalleled beauty of the hotel, combined with the convenience of religious services and meals, translate to an exceptional travel opportunity for people around the world.

As one of the preeminent Guangzhou events, the 116th Canton Fair (also known as the China Import and Export Fair) features exhibitors from virtually every industry imaginable. This autumn, Phase 1 of the fair centers on technology, machinery, vehicles, lighting and the like; while Phases 2 (October 23 to 27, 2014) and 3 (October 31 to November 4) emphasize soft goods like clothing, shoes, carpets and home décor, as well as food, health products, gardening items, toys, ceramics, glass and more.

Visitors arriving through Kehilat Zion will be able to take full advantage of the fair's business opportunities without sacrificing religious observances or comfort, thanks to the hotel's Sephardic Syrian Synagogue & Glatt Kosher Exclusive Restaurant Hong Kong. Both of these entities will be on property and available to guests between October 23 and November 2, and they will facilitate religious services as well as provide kosher dining. Prayer services and Torah lessons will help focus travelers as they're on the road, while the breakfasts, take-away lunches and buffet dinners let guests effortlessly abide by kosher rules.
