Guangzhou's subway stations reminds me of HK's MTR!

Of course, they take HK as reference, but looks less fashionable & modern.

HK's MTR provided consultancy services to Guangzhou as well as Shenzhen's new metro lines.

I like the way the Chinese are using subways and commuter rail as primary transportation. You are taking a cue from Europe rather than the US. I think China will be the biggest superpower in Asia. Japan was 20th Century, and now it's the Chinese in the 21st. More power to China in the future!!!

Amazing metro system!!
I will check it next week in person, because I am on holidays 25 days in China. Now in Shanghai!

Does anybody want to show me the subway network of Canton?

Looks good. When was it built? Was it all built at the same time? It reminds me of the HK MTR too.

Guangzhou East to Shenzhen was 1 hr 5 min with the Blue Arrow train going at 200+ km/h.

How can a 70 km/h subway train reach Shenzhen?!

GZMTR opened in 1997 (I tried it shortly after opening) Line 2 opened in....2003?

But there is a new railway line planning between the Western Shenzhen(with Northwest Hong Kong) and Southwest Guangzhou! Is it worth to use the metro trains for those line?
