Canton Tower

I got up to the top of the Canton Tower (108/F, 443.2m) to got some really great night views of downtown, Guangzhou.

In case you haven’t heard of Canton Tower, Wikipedia might help with its instruction:

Canton Tower[3][4], formerly known as Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower[5], is an observationtower near Chigang Pagoda, HaizhuGuangzhouGuangdongChina. It was topped-out in 2009 and became operational on September 29, 2010 for the 2010 Asian Games.[6] The tower is the tallest tower in theworld, replaced the CN Tower at 553 m in Canada, which previous held the title for 34 years. Also the tallest structure in China (preceded by SWFC) and East Asia, the Canton Tower is the fifth tallest structure and the second freestanding structure in the world (after Burj Khalifa).
