This is my favorite building in China. It's definitely not artificial and it will add a lot to the area. I just wish that the columns will be more visible.

I love neon. Even on most of Hong Kong's buildings. But really, what is the purpose of that?

To make the evil spirits go away.








Its just a decoration or to promote attractiveness like the way Empire State Building looks like in aspecial day (Valentines Day, New Years Day, 4th. of July, etc). If you like skylines, you should see the neon lights of Kowloon, HK at night especially at New Year.
