It looks very expensive. IMO, Guizhou shouldn't expend too much in public buildings since it is still very poor.

very true. But it's ok if it can be used to boost the tourism, people traveling back from Guizhou told me there are many undeveloped tourism resources in that poor state. They may need a good name card to attract tourists.

Damn, the Dongguan CBD looks so horrible boring for god's sake... One day we'll all be satisfied of looking at glass towers, because of such things. They shouldn't built a park of boxes, some more diversity would make it a lot more interesting.

Those renders/photos look good. Boxy, but very modern looking. Wish they would put more effort into developing the more inland cities like Xi'an, Zhengzhou. Those cities and the more affluent coastal cities are worlds apart.

these cities are catching up. Dalian sure looks pretty, and I was fortunate enough to visit this city earlier this year. However, I would say this city is more beautiful on posters...

I hope the Chinese government don't fill all those cities with modern architectures. Cities like Kunming and Guizhou should place priority in preserving their age old and cultural buildings. In the eyes of most tourists to China, that is what they are hoping to see. The same way that CHinese hoping to see those Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance buildings in Europe.
