Is it easy to go to the Great Wall from Guangzhou or Shanghai? I mean... is it near those cities?

not nearly!
guangzhou to beijing: 2450KM
guangzhou to shanghai: 1780km
shanghai to beijing :1650km


you must spend 2 hours by plane from guangzhou to beijing , use almost 1hours From The capital airport to beijing downtown by airport express and spend 1~2 hours by GREATWALL EXPRESS TRAIN from beijing downtown to the Greatwall。

I would have had the crown of the building look more rounded off as it does look quite abrupt. Is that a helipad on top because it doesn't really work at that angle, wish it could have been more central on the top... But saying that, I cannot deny this is a gorgeous tower!

yeah its a heli pad. And I guess its put to the side so that there is still a lot of sunlight that can go into the atrium.

I'll take the sheer size of SWFC over West Tower. But both are fantastic.

I agree, the platform should not be visible. Beautyful tower though.
