hkskyline's 2009 GUANGZHOU Photo Collection #3

This is Guangzhou's surprise. The Sacred Heart Cathedral was recently renovated, and welcomes visitors to explore its premises.































Yuexiu Park is a popular green retreat, with plenty of big trees that shade from the hot summer sun.









The location of this condom vending machine is a bit odd. Buy your supply, then go into the park to use?



Zhongshan Memorial Hall looks quite traditional in design, although it does look like it got a renovation recently.





















The local newspaper ...



Plenty of choice for print media.







Single deck buses dominate the streets, but they are decorated in all sorts of colours and ads.











A piece of Macau in Guangzhou.





A high-speed train links Guangzhou with Shenzhen, but the station seems a bit outdated for such a modern service.





A few more city scenes :









I saw quite a lot of these vehicles on the streets.











Is your kung-fu real?
