It depends on how much you like choking air along with your big buildings.

That's why clean and efficient public transportation and skyscrapers mix so well together.

The Amazing Race, TV program showed here in the USA, Sunday evening featured a piece where the teams were in Guangzou, they showed the Canton Tower, it's obs deck, and the IFC and CTF under construction.. my God the Obs deck on Canton Tower is WAAAAAAY up there. they also showed those White Bracket things that were by the water "someone was asking there function", well I don't know if they were implemented for the "Amazing Race" but the teams were swinging from a cord held up by those things"

Also the Canton Tower is just "beautiful" best looking Tower in the World, when comparing to CN, OPT, or even Tokyo Sky.. Canton is above the rest.

Have to agree here. It must be the most beautiful human-made modern structure I've ever seen.

Do you have a link to that TV show?
