Rotating pods atop Canton Tower in Guangzhou give riders a breathtaking view of one of the world's most populous cities. The Bubble Tram is sometimes referred to as the world's highest Ferris wheel, though the track is horizontal. The cars circle the top of the tower, 1,493 feet high.

Guangzhou is on the Traveler 50 list of the world's smartest cities. See more >>
