If you have lived in Guangzhou for a while, you may notice a bizarre village located in the city’s CBD. Its buildings without doors and windows and the shining skyscrapers nearby made a very weird contrast.
The village, Xiancun, is located in the center of Guangzhou’s CBD, Zhujiang New Town, and covers an area of 4.07 square km.
In the morning of December 19, 2016, the firecrackers and a traditional ceremony marked the start of reconstruction of this old village.
Same as other old villages’ reconstruction projects, the project, with huge compensation, will create a bunch of millionaires.
