Guangzhou, Guangdong — Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong, is home to an area called Hongqiao which is known throughout China as an African neighborhood. In 1998, the first group from Africa came to Hongqiao area and since then the population has kept increasing. More than a decade later, there are more than 200,000 Africans living in the city, making up almost 2% of the whole population of Guangzhou. With the rapidly growing African population, the billboards in this area are usually written in four different languages — English, Chinese, French and Arabic.
