Ghetto Apartments in Guangzhou, China

ghetto low income apartment Guangzhou China


While in Guangzhou, China to visit the Canton Fair I stayed at some hotel. The hotel was near the river front and this apartment building wasn’t far from it. Later that week we met some Canadians who told us this whole area was “pretty ghetto” and that people get shot around here. Not foreigners but locals for sure.

This is also where I saw a lady throw a live chicken into a boiling pot of water, huh?

    Nice photo and blog mate! Though not sure I agree about any part of Guangzhou being “ghetto”! Its a fairly safe and standard Chinese city. Safe travels, Jonny
