264. Canton Tower has some wicked decorative lighting system. They really wanted to make it extra-cool and they managed to do it

Next is a busy area near the Guangzhou Railway Station. It's got some not so good reputation and internet is full of advice to keep your money close to yourself. Although in realyti there's nothing to be scared of. All it is, is a busy shopping area where you can buy all sorts of cheap stuff. Predominantly fake designer clothes. Quite a few foreigners (both tourists and long-term residents) there as well. All in all this is where many visitors as well as locals would come to do some serious shopping


275.


276. Video of the area


277.


278. One of the shopping centers where you can buy tons of fake goods. I got a Lacoste T-shirt which as of excellent quality. You may get some bargains if buying in larger quantities


279. Food stalls

Back to the quiet and slow-going Fangcun area. This area is subject to a development known as Baietan. Things will change completely over the next few years. I wish that riverside street would be preserved though


285. Morning in Changdi street


286.


287.


288.


289.


290. The cheapest Porsche Panamera in China costs around 124 000 EUR. For comparison, the cheapest option in the EU would be around 68 000 EUR and even less in the US. Chinese, however, are ready to pay much more for luxury


291.

312. Driving culture in China has yet to catch up with the standards of more tangible objects. The light vehicle stopped just like that in the middle of a side road. The bus wanted to turn but the car was blocking its way. The bus started to signal using the sound signal while the driver of the light car simply kept ignoring the bus

Tianhe Road is alright - there are plenty of good-quality shops lining it.
