I guess it's because of the Chinese New Year month. Most workers will stay with their families until the last week of Feb. Still remember 800,000 workers stayed in Guangzhou railway station waiting for the train home two weeks ago.

Looks like the construction of Guangzhou new TV station will start soon. But no sure which design is to be chosen.

Is that an illusion or did it already start to get wider? Last picture looks like that. Unbelievable speed.
