...it looks nice & i can see their effort of trying to build something different from just building another ordinary ferris wheel...but the problem is, the world has enough ferris wheels, big and small. And it becomes a dull, typical, "there-is-another-ferris-wheel" scenery for most of the great cities' skylines... London, Singapore, Yokohama, Taipei, Paris, Kuala Lumpur have it...more and more city have the same landmark..

Have a look at the Kai Tak one.

An interesting ferris wheel if ever there was one...

that's how our "competent" and "great" government uses our tax money,they build those giant shits in major cities for the world to see so that the rest of the world could say:"wow china is a rising superpower", while the kids in rurual area of China are starving,the same government however turns a blind eye to that
