The Thrill of a Tall Building

The end is nigh for my time in Foshan. Quite soon I will move a few kilometres up the road to Guangzhou to resume my Chinese adventure, albeit on a grander scale, I hope. 

With that being said, the time has also come to say goodbye to some folks. The first of the grand goodbyes took place in a grand old building, the Kingkey 100, the second tallest building in Shenzhen, and the 14th tallest in the world. 

I still haven’t made my way to the top of Canton Tower, a shame I have to admit, but after seeing the views from KK100 it is now high on my to do list. 

I am always looking for new thrills. I am always trying to think of something different to do in this very different country, but alas my imagination usually bounds towards the very obvious idea of skydiving and bungee jumping. 

It is refreshing then to find a thrill in a place I did not expect, to find some new hobby which will at least comfort me when I travel to Shanghai, or to Kuala Lumpur, where I may be unsure of finding the depths I tend towards in travel. 

The view afforded by such a building, a view of the whole city, is astonishing in daylight and even more so at night, as the streetlights burn and the outline of buildings blur together.
