No offence but having been to Taipei personally, the city has a lot of catch up to do in terms of its skyline and urban planning. The first thing they can do is maintain the buildings in the city so they don't look so run down, at least.

THE CITY OF GUANGZHOU ::: 广州

Guangzhou is the capital and a sub-provincial city of Guangdong Province in the southern part of the People's Republic of China. It is a port on the Pearl River, navigable to the South China Sea, and is located about 120 km northwest of Hong Kong.






Guangzhou is the economic centre of the Pearl River Delta and is the heart of one of Mainland China's leading commercial and manufacturing regions.
