Skylines



15. Guangzhou , ChinaMetro/Urban Population: 4.1 million Guangzhou is the Chinese name for both the
province and its capital city, both of which the
English called 'Canton'. This province is the
closest to Hong Kong, and the language spoken
here (Cantonese) is the one is spoken by the
thousands of Hong Kong immigrants to North
America, (vs. Mandarin, the language spoken
in Beijing). (Cantonese and Mandarin are as
different from each other as English is from
French, but the both groups can read the
written Chinese characters since both use the
same pictographs to represent the same
concepts.)
