There is a gorgeus view, especially in the evening, It is the highest outdoor place at 450 m. It is an interesting experience.

Haizhu Palaza is the best place for photos at night. Getting onto the tower costs like a fortune so it was just fun enough for me to glance at it from afar.

Very clean toilets at the top! This is number 1 on my list because the lines for the toilet at the ground level are crazy long. And... More

Definitively a great place to visit if you have some free time during your business trip ! Might want to avoid the weekends as there can be a lot of people.

Great place to view the city albeit if you have a smog free day I recommend the ride which takes you on the outside of the building
