I believe a lot of these are from the Zhujiang New Town in Tianhe district. It's Guangzhou's answer to Pudong, with plenty of new skyscrapers.

Yea ... I was planning to do a walking tour of this part of town on my next visit, and check into one of the new Tianhe hotels. Looks like there is a lot to see.

Thank you for the pictures, they gave me a much better idea of how Guangzhou is like. The amount of construction going on in China is unbelievable.

On the other hand, I had never heard about an African comunity in China. Do they integrate with the locals? How are they received?

Cheers!

Guangzhou has the biggest African community in China. A lot of Africans go there to do business as Guangzhou is probably the biggest trading center in China famous for China Export and Import Fair (Canton Fair).

Here is an interesting article about the African Community in Guangzhou:
