Napalm Napalm...
This is the classic "movie you have to go watch or we'll go broke" thing. You can beg me on your knees but I won't go because you bored me to death already. If you want to make your lousy buzz advertising stunt on this site you should at least couple it with something relevant.

The guy on the right side is actually from the Earth. But yes, the lady might get some cultural shock!

Although not as tall as the Burj, Shanghai Tower will be equally spectacular because it is very thick all the way to the top.

Why you always have to spew negativity on anything related to geographical locations to the east of you?

Berlin has his own share of uber crap, degradation, filthy rundown crime-ridden neighborhoods, but we don't see peoples talking about those every time the name comes up.

Thanks wap-190 for bringing the thread back alive

Are you in your visit to shanghai or do you live in shanghai? For me i find it very embarrasing to walk in jinmao with a camera, taking the elevator to 56th? floor just to take some pictures.

I really admire those people who does because of their bravery.

Well I had lunch there so I think it's ok. I will go there next week again when I am back in Shanghai, but after that I am not in Shanghai anymore ... maybe in the summer again.

I have taken a lot of photos of the other buildings u/c in lujiazui too, but the internet is too slow here, so I can't upload them now.

I have to say it's really not easy to find spots to take pictures from the tower right now, except from jinmao.

What are the chances the height of this tower will be increased in order to beat Tokyo Sky Tree?

I think after the foundation is finished, the chance of increasing the height will be very small. Unless they add a spire which i would rather not only to beat the Sky Tree.
