Today it's formally named as "Guangzhou Tower". The tower will officially open tomorrow. Through I don't know if the pod riding part will be opening or not.

The english name should be Canton Tower, and the pod ride will be opened two months later

check out the video, Guangzhou Tower lighting scheme, very beautiful

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjEwMTQzODU2.html

I normally avoid youku, but this is only available there, so if it takes forever to load the video, don't blame me.

Isn't Canton the old name for Guangzhou? It's not the english version name is it? Nobody calls Guangzhou as Canton anymore as far as I'm aware....

I love Canton tower!!

We should call “廣州” as “Canton”, but not “Guangzhou”.
Cantonese is much different from Mandarin(普通話)
We know that 香港 is Hongkong, not Xianggang.
