The Chinese construction company, Guizhou Ludia Property Management, has recently created something like a straight out of a sci-fi movie. The company built a 350-foot high waterfall on the side of a skyscraper.
The waterfall is located in Guangzhou, the capital of southwestern China’s Guizhou Province. You need 4 massive pumps to lift this giant water, and it costs about $ 100 an hour to run. Falls are only used for special occasions.
Locals think the waterfall is good, which may be good for tourism: “I think the tourist in Guizhou province is too much. “Huangzhou Falls is the most popular waterfall in China, and because it is located in Guizhou, it may look like a small advertisement,” Tengu Zhang, a local resident, told Borate Panda.
Although not everyone is satisfied. Many believe this is a very wasteful project. But Tenkiyu disagrees: “Well, it’s not always. It is only open if there are some international and important events.”
The city of Guangzhou has recently experienced rapid growth as people from other parts of the province gather. Southiju says it was one of China’s poorest provinces five years ago. “But now the government wants to build a big data center in Guangzhou. So the economy is growing fast. For example, sites for Apple, Google and Amazon are located in Guangzhou, ”said the resident.
