Guangzhou is in southern China, about 80 miles from Hong Kong and Macao.

Guangzhou is the fifth biggest city in China with 11.5 million people

China has many modern department stores.
It is pretty impressive aside from being 9 stories!
And the prices are a small fraction of what they would be in the USA.

There are many European style buildings there.

They all depict the life style of "westerners".
