Besides those rides arent "scary" if you want scary....take a look at that bamboo scaffolding in those recent pics......THATS SCARY!!!!!! And the only other REALLY scary thing i can think of is......owing some guy named Guido $10,000 and your a week late!!!! that is REALLY REALLY scary!! LOL

That is really high up, thanks for those pics. I'll be there on Oct 24 for a couple of days can some one give me names of a nice inexpensive hotel to stay at? Maybe I can meet up with some of you Guangzhou forumers while I'm there.

Lets have a guess:
Climbing, dont think so
Flying, maybe
Elevators, probably

I think flying is the answer.
