Guangzhou really need some face lifting,particularly the government build apartrment located in the city,they are eye sore.
When it come urban planning,Guangzhou can learn a lot from her neighbor Hong Kong,I recall back in the late 60's the central are full public building with there dirty laundry hanging out side ,Tai ping san were full squatters ,Now central area are dominated tall skyscraper,the whole area under goes massive face lift.

Guangzhou is pouring investment to tackle pollutions. This summer, the Head of Guangdong province Mr Huang Huahua, together with the mayor of Guangzhou Mr Zhang Guangning and 3,500 Guangzhou citizens swam across the once-polluted Zhujiang River to signify the achievements of the strict environmental protection measures the authority has been carrying out since 2003.
Zhujiang River has never been swam across for 29 years, mainly due to severe pollutions from factories across the river banks. The authority has projected that in 5 years, Zhujiang River will be as clean as it ever be.
On a national scale, environmental protection is also a major task. China is to spend 175bn in the coming 5 years to improve the air, water and soil conditions polluted due to China's large-scale industrialisation in the past 20 years.

More photos about the new CBD of Guangzhou.

Actually, Guangzhou is the capital of the Guangdong province, the richest area in China.
It also hosts the Guangzhou(Canton) fair, the largest fair in China which attracts more than 400,000 people from all over the world ever year.

LOL when I was there it was so empty - Citic Plaza had just been finished and was still unlandscaped ... look at everything now! Seeing all these new buildings is simply amazing! I am loving the style of most of these new additions too.

My opinion on guangzhou is that its always incredibly polluted, theres almost a constant complete cloud cover, its way too crowded, the citys design is very uninspiring, there are too many beggars, forget seeing any stars at night, the clouds will most likely be covering the sky, and if they arent u'll probly be able to see, one or two white specks.

The traffic is terrible, the clifford bus system b/w gz and clifford is good tho, really cheap and the buses are pretty decent.

Guanzhous apparent statement at being a "garden city" or something is such crap, the whole environment of guangzhou and the surrounding region is so screwed up, just random buildings everywhere, very little vegetation at all, some mountains are seeminly chopped away to make more room.

Guangzhou is officially urban hell, it must hav the worst planning of any city ever, the nightclubs are all pathetic, there are too many malls with exactly the same boring shops selling fake crap.

All the renders of the buildings u/c / planned, will never become reality in that, the sky will most likely never be that blue, and the pollution probly wont even let you see most of them from a short distance away.

Guangzhou doesn't deserve these buildings, they are just trying to show off with all this uneccessary crap, and it disgusts me.

BTW ive lived in clifford for 2 years now.

I am not sure when and where did you live in Guangzhou .But obviously Guangzhou is not that bad as what you describe.
If you don't like rendering, then I show you some real photos without being PSed. Actually the only thing I can see from your reply is jealousy

Guangzhou is a modern city with 2,800 years history!

Wow! 10 years ago this city was probably smaller than Smallton, Montana! One just wonders how China will manage to keep the control of its people... All these buildings are great creations, but at the expense of poor Chinese labourers that make $.27 an hour!

fully agree with you, I visited Quangzhou last april,dissappointed by the city.
the city is still long way to go.traveling from Quangzhou to Hong Kong is just like switching black and white TV to color television.

Quangzhou is a beautiful city. Obviously, Quangzhou is booming and the rest of China is booming because the 21st century is the Asian century. Nearly everything/product is made in China. Unfortunately, the "majority white people" countries in Europe, North America, Australia etc... are worsening/getting worse and worse. Congratulations to China and the rest of Asia for improving so much over the last 20 years and China and the rest of Asia will become even more successful in the the next 10-20 years. It is Asia's time.

Guangzhou has developed alot over these years. I know the city lacks in some areas like air, traffic, skyline, etc... but overall I think just because of that dosent make a city on how bad or terrible it is. Guangzhou is one of the best cities in the world to me. The photos and renderings of the skyscrapers and towers are just amazing!
