But, I will say, the Canton tower is one of the most beautiful strictures in China. Any city would be lucky to have it... But I digress.

Well, that wasn't hard.
There's a link to flickr below the photo. On the photo page there's a map tag, which shows You it's taken 'in' the ancient park, take google maps - look up the location, compare the angle view of the skyscrapers, check the first hotel by the river near the location, and You get http://www.shanghai.hotelindigo.com/ - check the room interiors and You'll notice it's the same windows and You got it. Just stop being lazy

They are actually quite far from each other. But they are so immense that it just feels that way.
