Gallery: Pearl River Delta field trip – March 2015

This field trip highlighted China’s recent attempts to turn specific areas in the Guangdong province into world-class commercial, service or high tech hubs. These include Shenzhen’s Qianhai new district, Zhaoqing’s high-tech industrial development zone, and Zhuhai’s Hengqin new area.

We also visited two sharply opposite urban villages (or literally, “village in city”) in Guangzhou, the Liede village and Shipai village. Liede village has been renovated, whereas Shipai village is still in its original form. Urban villages are generally associated with social problems like poverty, overcrowding and poor living conditions. However, they did provide affordable housing for newcomers to big cities.
