A truly interesting case of civil engineering and architectural work! The external metallic structure, beautifully illuminated, combines beauty, elegance flexibility and an amazing resistance for winds and earthquakes. The top being about 600 m above soil (I did not check the precise figure), Canton Tower has great views, unfortunately not captured in my photos. I went in the evening, already... More

This tower is different in size and shape and is quite impressive to look at. It is easy to get there by subway. Not sure it was worth the price to visit as we were not interested .However, we did take some nice pictures and we took the ferry to cross the river and visit the Asian Olympic Park.

I've only paid to go to the lower observation deck level and even that costed $20. The coolest part of all was probably taking the high-speed elevator.
