|Hello and welcome to China,|
It all depends which kinds of products you are interested in.
Yiwu is biggest market-place in China (this says enough!), mostly concentrated on gift/decoration-like items, but there are also many other products catoegories, too.
It is definitely No.1 place to visit for your busines profile.
Guangzhou is also interesting, there are lots of clothes markets, and also other products, which shouldn't be avoided.
As frequent EU-China flyer, I recommend travel from EU to China via HongKong (this will save money for ticket), and Guangzhou is only 1.5h by train, where you can visit local markets, but also use it as transfer point and conveniently fly to Yiwu as your main destination.
I'm European living and working in Guangzhou and HongKong, very busy during October (Guangzhou & HongKong trade-fairs), but in November I'm free, so if you need any help, information or just friendly suggestion, please let me know, I would be happy to help in any way.
I'm going to Yiwu with my clients next week, if I catch some free time then I can check the situation about the products that you are interested in.
As foreigner living in China, most of business success I owe to help and support from friends and people I met, so that is why I'm happy to help to other people who come here for the first time. You can send me private message here if you need any further information or contact, I don't like to leave it here on public posts.
Important note: Never leave your contacts (email/phone) here opened on forum posts, use those only in private messages to other members.

as a native and international businessman, I can give you some tips.
Tip 1. Yiwu is the biggest small commodity market in china, there is nothing you can't find there. as you are "buy a big variety of goods but not big Quantity per item", definitely Yiwu should at the top of your priority. we have many other markets not only in Guangzhou, but many places, however no one can beat Yiwu in size and variety.
if you are looking for certain product, maybe you can try(Jinjiang sportswear market, Keqiao textile market, Haining Leather market, Linhai glasses market,the list go on and on). you can check the website for more details(http://www.chinafairs.org/
Tip 2 for shipping agent, you can check http://www.cargocare-freight-shipping.com/
if you have any other question, PT me please.

We recommend Yiwu considering the competitive price and style choices.
Have a good biz trip!
