Unless you're a great fan of high places, and spending money, this isn't worth the effort. The overwhelming security presence makes a tour feel like you're having a contact visit in a SuperMax Jail, but paying for the privilege - then you keep paying. Once you've parted with the admission fee (high even by local standards), and you're inside, a... More

We went there for a night view. A lot of light and dirty windows ruined the possibility to see anything but the nearest buildings :-( We went to the top restaurant and ordred 2 cups of coffee - we had to pay 256 RMB for that! (At starbucks the most exspensive coffee is priced at 40 RMB). Even though we... More

Firstly, Tianjin is not a tourist city. Its a fast growing sprawling metropolis. The most interesting parts can be seen in a day or two. I really like the tower (4th largest in the world?). It has great views of the park and zoo and the two olympic parks. Looking down can be dizzying and I'm not envious of the... More

Nothing special. However is something you should see in the city. And also is close to one beautiful park. One of the biggest tower in the world.

This is a fabulous place and the view is really good. The tower is really tall and your ears end up hurting but if you yawn it doesn't. The souvenirs are great too. I got a 20 or so centimetre, gold painted replica of the tower. Overall, Excellent.

Tianjin is just another larger Chinese city that seems to go on for ever. The Tianjin Radio tower with it's 360 degree of the city can verify that. The air in Tianjin is much cleaner than in Beijin, which is just a 45 min. train ride away, but it still always has a lingering haze unless there is an East... More

Visited the observation tower in the afternoon when there was not to much smog so the views ended up very nice. It costs 50 Yuan per person to go up. There is also a revolving restaurant which you must pay the 50Y in order to reach it. Some towers if you plan on eting at the restaurant you don't need... More

Yes, the air pollution is horrible, and obstructs the view. Yes, the little restaurant at the top is overpriced. But it's still a cool experience, and worth the time.

We stayed at the hotel right next to the tower, so we had a great scenery from the window. In the day, it just amazes with its height (btw, it doesn't look so big even from the hotel which was 1 km away, but when we walked past it, it seemed huge!!!). And the most stunning view is during the... More
