Here, FunOnTheNet presents a collection of the world's most captivating and spectacular tunnels.

Captivating Tunnels That Transport You To Another World! 4.8 out of 5 based on 5 votes.

There are a great many heights to traverse where you can find spectacular views but you'd never imagine this job providing you with one everyday. Wei Gensheng, a professional crane operator, works on the second tallest building in the world and has used his advantageous position to provide the world with some stunning photographs of the Shanghai skyline.

Unknowingly, Gensheng has gained the title of world's most famous crane operator after he had the idea to capture this beauty on camera which also led to him being awarded the second prize in the Shanghai City Photography Competition. The photos taken atop the Shanghai Tower were taken from 2,000 feet over the city giving us the sight of endless buildings touching the sky and being cradled by clouds. It almost seems like it goes on forever and creates a sense of infiniteness with the city lights meeting the colours in the sky in a blissful union.

In 2014, after it's completion, the building will stand at 2,073 feet, following the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is the world's tallest building at 2,722 feet. The Shanghai Jin Jiang Hotel which will be the world's highest hotel occupies floors 84 to 110. The building is one of three, namely the Jin Mao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center, all of which are the tallest buildings in Pudong, Shanghai.
