23 August 2016

Don’t try this at home, but do check out this video of Russian thrillseekers Angela Nikolau and Ivan Birkus climbing the world’s highest construction site in the Chinese city of Tianjin.

The Goldin Finance building is due to be a stunning 117 floors or nearly 597 metres high. The video, filmed with a drone and sponsored by Travel Ticker, shows the pair climbing the summit of one of the site’s huge cranes.

Ms Nikolau is particularly well known for her daredevil adventures — her Instagram account, which has over 184,000 followers, is filled with selfies taken in dangerous spots.
