Much of our time was spent in the new Qujiang district in the south - a huge development of creative industries, cultural institutions, shopping malls dressed up in fake city-wall architecture and a Tang Dynasty theme park. Looks like Milton Keynes* meets Disneyland. Currently it covers 30 sq kms - and they're going to double it. In the evening we were invited to dinner at a new restaurant but after half an hour of driving round in circles our driver gave up and our hosts had to come and fetch us.
(* a lazy comparison - MK is hardly new anymore, in fact ancient history compared with Qujiang).
