I think that the whole pearl river delta will be one giant city in the future.
the UN reported that it would probably become the first megacity in the world (100 million+ people)

Forgot Dongguan, another Pearl River Delta city with six and a half million inhabitants, sitting between Guangzhou and Shenzen.

What would become a "megacity" first, Pearl river delta or Yangtze delta?

Could you show where Pingan tower and Shenzhen CBD are relative to maps of Shenzhen metro and Guangzhou-Shenzhen high speed railway? Is it convenient to walk out of the Pingan tower door to some high speed station? Can people working in Pingan tower commute to Guangzhou?

Are the users of Pingan tower known already?

These cities will never join. But the high speed rail link under construction will bring these cities closer.

Macau will be connected to HK via a bridge. Macau-Zhuhai is connected to Jiangmen-Zhongshan which is connected to Foshan-Guangzhou which is connected to Dongguan which is connected to Shenzhen which is connected to Huizhou. that's an effin' huge mega city.

You folks in Hong Kong should remember that it is not 37 years left to 1st of July, 2047. What are you planning to do that day?
