Tiny district in Guangzhou is home to thousands of workshops

Following the end of the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, the urban villages of Kangle, Lujiang and Datang in Guangzhou's Haizhu district were once again full of life and energy.

During the Spring Festival holiday, its hordes of garment factory workers left to return to their homes for New Year celebrations, and now, they were coming back to work.

That's why on the morning of Feb 22, factory owners were lined up on a street in the Kangle-Lujiang area in search of workers. Job seekers walked up and down, inquiring about salaries whenever they found a potential employer, and once an agreement was reached, the employers escorted their new recruits to their factories.

Vehicles carrying materials to factories found it difficult to navigate the streets, which were crowded with people, so traffic police occasionally had to step in to maintain order.

Kangle-Lujiang is adjacent to the Zhongda Cloth Market, one of the largest textile trading centers in China, and just 2 to 3 kilometers from bustling downtown Guangzhou.
