If you visit Guangzhou you can't help but spot this skyscraper towering above all others in the city. The CITIC Plaza is presently the 7th tallest building in the world, 3rd in China, at 391m. It's the tallest I've ever seen (Apart from Two International Finance Centre in Hong Kong, but that was still under construction).
This building was clearly built to make a statement and it is quite eerie that the roads and parks around it are almost deserted apart from the odd street cleaner. I'm sure that much of the tower must be unoccupied. It's such a contrast to see this huge, modern building barely two streets away from squalid slums.
