334. CITIC Plaza is actually a very beautiful building. I am usually not a fan of the 90's attempts to find the "authentic" contemporary Chinese styles but this building left a huge positive impression on me


335. Main antrance to Citic Plaza


336.


337.

A couple of videos taken through a dirty bus window on my way to China's entertainment and gambling outpost Macau

It gives some general idea of how Guangzhou's streets look like





Going through a very badass junction





And this is where it comes to the end.

Thank you all for your kind comments and discussion. I greatly enjoyed Guangzhou and now I can confidently say it was one of the most glorious cities I have ever been to and will certainly be there again... rather sooner than later.

The reasons for walking backwards are:

1.a) Most human beings walk forward all their life, thus their rear / posterior muscles are way under developed as compare to their frontal muscles.

1.b) The above unbalance muscles development leads to bad joints alignment, unnecessary muscles cramping, and hunching.


2) To strengthen the tendons and beautify the look of one's overall muscles.


3) To increase one's ability to balance oneself.

Great photos!
Just one question: on some websites I've seen that Guangzhou-Wuhan high speed trains leave from Guangzhou South station. Do you know if this is true? I don't know if these sites are reliable or not...
I thought that the departure was from Guangzhou East station...

It's mainly from guangzhou south station. To serve some ppl it has some that goes to east b4 going to wuhan.
I've been on it a couple of times. Very comfortable and enjoyable, much better than airplane.

[QUOTE=Pansori;78622576]26. 178m high CC Tower, built recently. Unfortunately I couldn't fund any info on this building. It's really interesting and one of my favorites in Guangzhou

What a crazy city. From the pictures, it seems so beautiful (if I can use this word), dynamic, interesting, and yet, it also seems so overwhelming. I can't imagine what it must be like to live in such a city.

Thanks for all the great pictures with explanations! I really enjoyed everything very much!

Thank you. Indeed, Guangzhou is a grand city. I think the best word to describe the scale, size and appearance of things in this city is monumental. It's just crazy how the entire city has been re-engineered over the last 20 years or so. It is a magnificent city.

A great and varied range of images.

What most strikes me about China is the rapid and revolutionary speed of industrialisation and 'modernisation':on the same scale as that which occurred in Britain during the industrial revolution in the 19C.

Summers should be quite decent and I've seen some really hazy weather in the winter months. Guangzhou is a bit inland from the sea so it doesn't get as much fresh ocean breezes.
