Guangzhou: Tianhe District

After some time in Hong Kong, my business took me to Guangzhou for a couple of days. I took the train over, so the first few pictures aren’t Guangzhou at all, but along the way. Here’s the first set… Enjoy!

Shenzhen







Dongguan













Tianhe District, Guangzhou
This is where I stayed and worked, so all of my pictures are from here.



Zhujiang New Town

















CITIC Plaza







Sinopec Tower





Guangzhou TV Tower



Guangzhou West Tower (Guangzhou International Finance Center)







Victory Plaza





Teem Tower







Tianhe Road













A residential neighborhood west of Tiyu Xilu















R&F Profit Tower





Agricultural Bank of China

I was in Guangzhou on Thursday, but the weather was awful. Looks like you had more favourable conditions. Great tour.

I guess I got lucky... There was a chance of thunderstorms when I visited, but it never materialized.

It houses The Westin Guangzhou... I believe it's officially called 天誉花园三期 (Tianyu Garden Phase III).

Bravo! Damn! China's amazing lately! I love these pictures. They're not the best but they're pretty down-to-earth and show us some variety. Damn my middle-income family! I really want to travel around China for at least a whole year!

Amazing. I was there in 1985, it was a totally different place. Few cars, lots of bikes and development looked like it ended in 1949 (few newer buildings). Not the same place.
