Take a Bath on Top of the World at Four Seasons Guangzhou, China

Imagine this spectacular view while relaxing in the egg-shaped bathtub from the dizzying heights of the Four Seasons hotel at the top of the IFC tower overlooking Pearl River New City, China.

The view itself is intoxicating, that is, unless you have a fear of heights, in which case, it would turn into a nightmare.

Imagine bathing in a tub full of your favourite fragrances, topped-off in bubbles, after a day of sight-seeing, or a soak before a feast at the restaurant on the 100th floor, the Zaha Hadid-designed Guangzhou Opera House situated just next door, or an adventurous night on the town.

Set on the 86th floor of the Guangzhou International Finance Centre (IFC), this bathroom, with panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows offering a truly breathtaking view of the city, housed inside the 438.6 m (1,439 ft) 15th tallest building in the world, must surely rank among the highest place to take a bath in the world.

The wall of windows makes way for a spectacular view overlooking the Pearl River and the iconic Canton Tower, another incredible architectural landmark in Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong Province. Beautiful and bare by day, lit in colours by night.

This is a head-spinning internal view to the top of the 103rd floor from the lobby of the Four Seasons Guangzhou, China.

Floors 69 to 99, of the 103-floor IFC building, are taken up by the Four Seasons hotel. Designed by architect Wilkinson Eyre, it is among the ten tallest skyscrapers in the world. With their lobby on the 70th floor, and an unobstructed, neck-breaking, knee-knocking atrium on the roof of the building, which in itself has observation decks on the top floors, it is well worth a visit, to see both the inside and out!
