province in South China. Located on the Pearl River, about 120 km (75 mi) north-northwest
of Hong Kong and north-northeast of Macau, Guangzhou is a key national transportation
hub and trading port. One of the five National Central Cities, it holds sub-provincial
administrative status. Guangzhou is the third largest Chinese city and the largest city
in South Central China. As of the 2010 census, the city's administrative area had a
population of 12.78 million. Some estimates place the population of the entire Pearl
River Delta Mega City built up area as high as 40 million, with an area of about
20,000 square kilometres (7,700 sq mi). In 2012 Guangzhou was identified as a
Beta+ World City by the global city index produced by the GaWC, the Globalization and
World Cities Research Network.
