no, guangzhou has always been a big city, it was the second city in china reach 1 million population after beijing like 200 years ago and it has been the biggest city in the south 4 long time

He's probably referring to Shenzhen which was a fishing village before the government decided to make it a SEZ.

From the pictures Guangzhou doesn't look that bad at all to me. Though since I have never been there I don't really know what it is like.

Yesterday i was in Guangzhou, and i have to say it is really incredible! So many cranes and u.c. skyscrapers. Guanzhou has already an impressive skyline, but when all this is completed it will be a true skyscrapercity which should be in the top 10 of the world skylines.

Too bad the weather was not so good (rain and high humidity) so it was not possible to make good pictures.

Guangzhou's new scrapers are so creative and modern as well.
