hkskyline's 2011 GUANGZHOU Photo Collection

1. Guangzhou's new TV Tower glimmers in all sorts of colours at night. It's not a static display - the colours change constantly.







4. By day, it's a long wait to get up to the top. Unfortunately, a smog problem persists in this part of southern China.











9. Zhujiang New Town is a new central business district under construction in the eastern part of town. The TV tower is supposed to finish off the axis.







12. The stadium at the bottom was a major venue for the 2010 Asian Games.











17. The lattice structure looks great from the outside, but it blocks a lot of views inside.













23. Cultural facilities have been added to the new central business district. Guangdong Museum already saw long line-ups early in the morning for free entrance. I had to buy admission to a special exhibition to gain immediate access.

















31. This is a pillow.





























45. Do you want seafood on this plate?

















The whole set : http://www.globalphotos.org/guangzhou.htm

53. Back on ground level, the smog seemed to have disappeared and the skyscrapers are clearly visible across the Pearl River.













59. A new APM line has opened, connecting the tower with the rest of the new CBD.









63. The central axis is now a big public space lined with skyscrapers or construction on both sides.

83. Various artworks have also been incorporated into the new architecture.







86. I had no idea the friendship store concept still survived to today.









90. I was quite impressed by the different types of beautification.

Interesting series! The city is moving ahead very fast. The city does not resemble Hong Kong in any way. Except for the smog perhaps.

Yes - Guangzhou is actually far more spacious and despite all the skyscrapers, there is a green refuge to counter the density. The smog is far worse in this part of the delta though.

105. Here are some more amazing works on display at the 5-storey Guangdong Museum.





















115. Imagine your wall is covered by this huge panel of black and gold.



















124. These wall ornaments are very detailed, and would make a nobleman's residence even more grand and fit for robbing.
