I would like to set up a webcamera for viewing the Guangzhou TV tower live. Has any of you access to a building nearby from where we have a view onto the site? I'm happy to bring a laptop to Guangzhou plus a webcam. just neat a place to install it. i 'm willing to pay cost of electricity and internet.
then I am also looking for a good photographer to take some high quality photos of the Guangzhou TV tower. If any of you has some good photos can he or she leave his email then I will contact you.

A question...

How many "swirl" are there from the bottom to top?

I guess about 3~5?

330m is not referring to the tip of the crane right?


Amazing, cannot really imagine another 120m on top of that thing for the body...
