The 600 meter Canton Tower built in time for the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, briefly held the title of the tallest free standing structure in the world until it was replaced by the Tokyo Skytree in 2011. However it is still the tallest tower in China and as free standing structures in the world go, occupies the fourth position. The tower with its distinctive twisted shape was designed as a hyperboloid structure both for stability and decorative purposes. The interior of the tower is divided into zones according to various functions and house TV and radio transmission facilities, viewing decks, a revolving restaurant, gaming areas, restaurants and coffee shops, an outdoor garden with a tea house, exhibition spaces, conference facilities and shops. A 4D cinema is in the works. A skywalk starts at 170 meters and goes up to 200 meters through the narrowest part of the structure. An observation deck further up the tower at 450 meters, the length of half a football field, provides extraordinary views right round. The revolving restaurant is at the topmost zone and according to many who have dined there, this is one of the best places to propose to a sweetheart. The services are located at the base of the tower while transport connections, a food court, parking areas and exhibition spaces are below decks. A slow panoramic lift and a double-decker high speed lift take passengers to wherever in the tower they wish to go. Not only is the Canton Tower an elegant structure but technical innovations and crowd pleasing attractions such 16 transparent passenger pods built from a special material to allow clear views go on a horizontal track round the top of the tower, no doubt a thrilling ride for people who are willing to try it. Those with a stomach for scary rides can try the Mega Drop and freefall from a 500 meter height on an open seat outside the tower. The Spider Walk is for fitness freaks able to climb 1028 steps between the 33rd and the 65th floors in the tower’s ‘waist’ or narrowest part. At night the tower emits a multi hued glow rather than being up lit. An environment friendly LED lighting system is responsible for this.
