It reminds me of a sci-fi weapon xD. I keep imagining it firing a lazer beam that would destroy the moon or the sun

Lol
It's really unique and better than an ordinary spire stick. And better 599m supertall than a pushed up 600m+ megatall because of the spire.

It would look amazing if it wasn't for all the smog messing up the view

I doubt there will be a day without any smog at all, because between the massive evaporation and pollution, there's not a single day without even a little smog which will blur the view.
Anyway, that's still one of the best tower ever, and the skyline of this city, with Ghuangzhou, will be awesome when it will be "completed".

Simply go to Google and type in' Sky in Shenzhen' and you will get it.



or go to this video if you still doubt about whether photoshop is used in the photograph.

You're right, but don't misunderstand me, i'm not saying "because of the pollution, there will never be a clear day", there will be, always, a little smog due to the massive evaporation in this region, but i don't think this as a bad thing :3

Anyway, nice video of Shenzhen, i'll put it in my favourites

Shenzhen has perhaps the best air quality of big cities in China. Certainly among the first tier cities.

I have never doubted that China has a very serious pollution problem at all,
even Chinese people themselves complain about it all the time. China has a
long way to go to reduce the pollution to the 'normal and 'acceptable' level.
But sometimes, IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH, you can have very beautiful
weather even in Beijing where the pollution is much more severe than
Shenzhen. You can simply go to YouTube and type in 'trip to Beijing', you
will see sometimes you can get very nice weather--crystal blue sky which
surprises me indeed. Last year, NOT during the APEC period, in other words,
the factories were not shut down by government; no special restriction on
traffic control was applied, but they were lucky to get crystal blue sky for a
couple of week! Why? I have no clue.

Once again, I don't deny China has a very serious problem with air pollution.

Fine weather in Beijing



Yes it is possible. In november 2010 I stayed a week for a businesstrip in Northern China. On most days it was rather smoggy, but luckily on our last day when we could visit Beijing it was completely blue with very strong cold winds.

Here some pictures:

Air quality in southern China has less problems with coal and sulphur. Fine particles and NOx are still a huge problem.

Probably the best season for air quality is the rainy season

The key issue is the manufacturing industry that is the major pollution manufacture. You can check out the total productions of all kinds
of industrial goods such as steel, aluminum, TV sets, computers, panel glass,
etc, whatever you can name, to see how much percentage of the Chinese made to the overall world wide made.

Last June, without strong wind which can usually blow away the pollution, the sky of Beijing looked gorgeous---truly crystal blue, very unusual and unreal.

when will u come to shenzhen again?

Shenzhen got the best air quality in China, not just for the big cities, in the 74 Chinese cities, it include big, middle and small cities, shenzhen got top 5 air quality. And the air quality become better and better now. There is a gap from shanghai to shenzhen for the air quality for 20 years, for Beijing, it got more than 30 years.
Last year 2015, the shenzhen pm2.5 got 29, shanghai is 51, beijing more than 80.

And shenzhen will got less than 25 before the 2020.

It not just about the location, weather or raining, it about the industry.
Shenzhen also got bad air quality 15 years ago, it changed and changed every year, get better super fast.

I am the professional for the Chinese cities air quality. You could ask me, lol

I really love these from above angles!!
And honestly.. I did not know that Shenzhen had so many greens. Every highway surrounded by walls of trees and large green spaces right in the center. Really nice!
