  • Century Giant Lamp Tower @ Zhongshan, should this be a Aladdin Lamp Tower for Disney?


    The Lighting Capital, Guzhen Town, is located in the northwest part of Zhongshan City. It is the convergence of Zhongshan City, Jiangmen City and Shunde District of Foshan City. This town is also adjacent to Hong Kong and Macao, in possession of convenient logistic strength.

    Guzhen has been evolving as a lighting industry base since 1982. Guzhen currently counts 3,000 registered lighting enterprises employing more than 50,000 workers. With efforts from both the private and public sectors, the town eventually grew into the largest specialized domestic lighting production base and wholesale market for lighting products. Currently, lighting products account for 95% of GDP in Guzhen and more than 60% of the domestic civil lighting market. These products are also exported to more than 80 countries and regions, including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Japan, the U.S., and Europe.

    Guzhen has built up a social reputation for expanding its business. The town's most famous thoroughfare is Xinxing Road, known locally as the "Lighting Street". With government support, the seven-kilometer stretch of Xinxing Road is crammed end-to-end with lighting companies. At the opening day of 2005 Lighting Fair, an important foundation-stone-laying ceremony was held for the Century Giant Lamp Tower. The Tower was invested with over 30 million USD. It is 253.8 meters high, includes 48 floors and covers 40,000 square meters. With its estimated completion in 2007, the Tower will be regarded as a symbolic construction of Guzhen Zhongshan City and South China.

            Hmm... don't really see the Aladdin angle. Looks a little more like the oil lamps on the tables at Cracker Barrel than anything Aladdin would have.
