I would think the name is "Inadequate/Vanity" building.

Why do I always think when i hear that China is going to build the 'world's biggest (insert your own word here)' that I think they are desperate to compensate for something?

The first big stone building in the world is the stepped pyramid in Saqquara, Egypt.

New Century Global Center, Chengdu, Sichuan.

 

From the out side it is rather spectacular, especially when you see it from the air either on approach or having just taken off from the airport.  The inside however is not that exciting.  There is a hotel (I think there will be 2 eventually), an overpriced water park, a generic shopping mall and lots and lots of offices.

I don't know about the first, but the current biggest building in China is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai City, United Arab Emirates county, Shanzhai Province.

How about this one?   IMHO it doesn't look so good in real life.  yeah, I know it's not finished, but I still don't think it looks as good as KK Building or IFC Buildings.

 

 

Ping An International Finance Center — Shenzhen, Gaungdong, China. Height (when completed): 2,125.98 feet / 647.99 meters

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
