I’ve been there on several occasions. extremely chaotic city despite nice appearance from the air. I can’t think of any European managing to drive a car on its own nor to find anything without guidance from a local that speaks English (what is quite rear frankly speaking)

I know what you mean. I was there last summer with a Chinese friend of mine. If I'd been on my own, I would've been in a lot of trouble. I wouldn't have been able to tell taxi drivers where I wanted to go, or order food at a restaurant... It's quite difficult

Aside from that: fantastic city!

I measured on google earth, and the distance from Canton Tower to CITIC Plaza is 3.9 km... about the distance from Lower Manhattan to Midtown Manhattan.

I'm actually surprised that there are still some fields around it at this growing rate there won't be any left in a couple of years

This one got built pretty fast, right? When I was starting to know SSC in 2007 it was just a project. No delays I guess.
