Amazing Guangzhou Skyline Pics Few Have Seen
 
I've notices how underrated Guangzhou skyline is. For the record, Guangzhou has 8 completed 300m+ building(plus the 600m Canton Tower) as of 2017, a number 3rd in the world only to Dubai and Shenzhen.

Moreover, 7 out of 8 of these 300+ and the Canton Tower are concentrated in a rectangle area of about 1 sq km, aka Zhujiang New Town, making a skyline in my opinion THE BEST in the world as of 2018.

What do you think? How would you rate this skyline in the world?

Kazakhstan is the greatest country in the world.

Sweet.

I really like the Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre. That is such a nice building. I know it's not exactly daring architecture, but it's ridiculously tall and has a solid presence on the skyline with some actual features to it. It harkens back to the big statement towers like the Sears Tower.

One thought, two words ... third world.

The Guangzhou IFC is also very nice and such an architecture gem, it would be THE BUILDING if put in most cities or even countries. However, standing beside CTF and Canton tower you can only get overshadowed...
