Rising above an intersection of Guangzhou New City Central Axes and Pearl Rive for nearly 6 years, the Canton Tower has gained Guangzhou citizen’s recognition and love, also a nickname as the thin waist (Xiao Man Yao). It has also become one of the must-see in Guangzhou.
Canton Tower is located at an intersection of Guangzhou New City Central Axes and Pearl River, directly facing Haixinsha Island where the opening and closing ceremonies of the Sixteenth Asian Games were held and the 21st century new city CBD of Guangzhou-Zhujiang New Town.

With its unique shape and design, Canton Tower has become a magnificent landmark on the New City Central Axes, adding beauty and charm to the Pearl River.
There is one smaller rotating ellipse at the top twisting up counterclockwise with the other larger rotating ellipse at the bottom, which creates a “slim waist” in the middle and makes it look like a lady looking behind.
