Jesus, I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about that. Reminds me of the time I went up in the St. Louis Arch, but this would be so much worse.

Even though I like the Oriental Pearl in Shanghai (especially at night time) I kinda wish they would replace it with something a bit more modern like this...this is a great building!

Pudong skyline would look 100 times better with this thing replacing the Pearl tower..

Just a little disappointed that the night light scheme on this tower is still a bit tacky. They should come up with some more futuristic colors than rainbow colors.

It's amazing how quickly those glass floors get all scuffed up! Once that gleam is gone the effect is always gone for me. CN Tower's are just dreadful!

Yeah, i've been in multiple towers with glass floors but this one is the craziest I think. The twisting of the tower makes it extra uncomfortable. I already get this weird feeling in my stomach when looking at the picture.

Greetings from Holland

Visited Guangzhou 17 years ago in 1993, what a change, wow .

Tower looks great, as a Dutchman I feel proud (Dutch architecture and lightning).

But also a little jealous, in China these kind of buildings get build, in Holland we have to wait a very long time for something like this .

I have a feeling that, no matter how many pictures of this tower I see, they pale in comparison to seeing it in person. It makes me want to visit Guangzhou just for that reason. Congrats on an amazing structure!

Yeah, GZ never fails to amaze. I really like this skyline that they have. Hopefully everything gets completed soon so that it becomes one of the world's best skylines
