Back to China and the development there:
See how Chinese cities have developed over the last few decades: http://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/24/ar...nes/index.html
The amazing architecture of some of the new skyscrapers are mind boggling, maybe especially in Shenzhen, where there were nothing but a few small fishing villages and market towns as late as in the mid 1960’s and early 1970’s, when I first traveled though there on the way to/from other places in China by train from Hong Kong.
Even in the early 1990’s when I first spent some time there it wasn’t much except around the ferry point in Shekou, near the Luohu border crossing and some low factory buildings dotted around, especially in Chiwan. https://randomwire.com/tag/development/page/2/
