Guangzhou and Shanghai with height

After Hong Kong we went to Shanghai. Chosen mode of locomotion by land. Along the way, we decided to stay in Guangzhou, given that in this city of skyscrapers and a huge number of our friends lived there - it was a necessary stop before Shanghai. What came out of it, you can look inside the post.
In Guangzhou, I was the second time, to be honest the city I do not like.
Despite the fact that the Guangzhou - one of 24 historical cities in China, with more than 2,000 years of history. Nothing historical is not here, but in terms of architecture, the only attraction here - it's Canton Tower, built on the patent of Shukhov.
On the roof of an international financial center. The height of 432 meters.
Guangzhou has a population of over 13 million people is the fourth largest city in China, second only to Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin.
Due to the large number of factories in and outside the city, there stands a permanent smog. The photo is still excellent visibility, sometimes able to tighten the city so that the neighboring buildings at a distance of 10 meters almost not visible.
Guangzhou Financial Center.
Hyperboloid 610-meter Guangzhou TV Tower with an observation deck.
Guangzhou TV Tower - the second tallest tower in the world, second only to Tokyo. The height of the tower is 600 meters. At a height of 488 meters is an open observation deck.
Tickets cost from 850 to 3000 rubles - depending on what you want to see. Optimal ticket will cost 1800 rubles: the rise of the site, access to open space and air travel on the tram. Along the perimeter of the tower move the booth.

Let us now turn to the most interesting part of the city - it's a slum.
Quarter called Xian Cun, it is located in the center of the city and living out its last days.
In the area unfolds a real social problem. Not all residents want to leave and give up their homes to be demolished. For the most part due to the fact that the government does not offer them favorable conditions, changing their flats and houses in the center of the small rooms on the outskirts of the city.
The government, in spite of the protests and the reluctance of residents to leave the area, disables them light and water, prohibit the sale and so on ...
I think that in a few months, when the government relocated the remaining residents of these homes, the area razed to the ground and replace it with a lot of business centers of 200-300 meters.
The struggle of people with the government in China is very bad job.
