Maybe Iīm paranoid but now I believe that some people (maybe influenced by other people) didnīt want Shenzhen as a Special Economic Zone to be more succesfull than Guangzhou or Shanghai. However his skyscraper is supertall, with good design, it would really be the best skyscraper in China and rest of the world. Shenzhen would beat Guangzhou and Shanghai as well. Not only by me but also by many otehrs the reasoning that there was possibility that spire might obstruct flight paths, is simply idiotic.

Wow, that location looks like it comes straight out of a science fiction movie.
Would love to be there myself.

The rice fields in these pictures should be in Hong Kong already. The diagonaly lit towers infront of Pingan are in south Futian, a bit further south there is the river dividing HK from mainland China. Everything on the other side of the river bank is already HK. So the rice field should be in HK already.

I canīt understand why there is almost no chance to travel from Shenzhen to HK. There are so strong restrictions, that itīs advisable to travel from Shenzhen to Gungzhou and only from Guangzhou to HK. It takes much more time and sucks

AFAIK there are two points where you can cross the border. One at "Lok ma Chau" and the other one at "Lo Wu station" both basically function like international borders. So it shouldnīt be so complicated to cross the borders.

But unless Iīm mistaken, you need special visa when you want to get from Shenzhen to HK. But when you want to get from Guangzhou to HK (or Shenzhen), you donīt need any visa. So if you want to get from Shenzhen to HK, youīd better get to Guangzhou and from Guangzhou to HK, right?

Itīs all the same upon arrival, the same procedure also happens in Macau. They all even have different currencies.

That's beautiful. The brilliant render - and the real building does not look different much. Unbelievable!
