How did you determine which is left which is right . Most buildings are symmeterical maybe it was just shot from behind the view you are accustomed to.

Also even with the traffic it is not clear which is right or left . Atleast if it were a car instead of a bus on the road we could have understood which direction the traffic is moving and thus determined that but that is also not clear.

The photographer who snapped that picture was standing on the Jintian Lu overpass at the eastern end of the crystal island on Shennan Dadao. He took the picture at a south westerly direction looking towards the Times Square complex.

This render is a quite accurate depiction of the surroundings so I'll point out where the photographer is. You can see that if we view the Ping'an towers from there, the shorter tower should be on the left.

Shenzhen downtown used to be LuoHu district, but this district now is quite old and had been badly urban planed (too few green areas, parks, too narrow streets for tall buidlings etc.). Now the new downtown of Shenzhen if FuTian district where is located PingAn building. It is lot better designed and structured, they want to make it a financial centre it is well located, not far from LuoHu and NanShan, right in the middle between ShenNan Road and BinHe Road which are the main roads that go through Shenzhen on an East to West axis. The Exhibition Centre is located inside this new CBD, there is an easy access to 2 borders linking to Hong Kong (HuangGang and FuTian checkpoints). The CBD is built on a North Shouth Axis that goes from LianHua hill (big public park) to the exhibition center, it contains, offices, the huge shenzhen city hall, apartments, Shenzhen Concert Hall, Shenzhen main Library, the future art museum, Malls, Parks etc...
