The Dutch architects designed this tower to look 'female', earning it the nickname 'slim waisted' (xiǎo mán yāo ; 小蛮腰) when it opened in 2010. Most visitors flock to this symbol of Guǎngzhōu at nightfall for the rainbow-LED-lit exterior. The more expensive admission fees get you higher up the world’s second-tallest TV tower (610m) and the views are riveting. You can even ride transparent observation cars.
