The elevator ride is fantastic. For only 50RMB, you can dig deep into your childhood fantasies, don an imaginary cape (or panda hat), and pretend to be the Man (or Woman) of Steel flying into the stratosphere to fight crime or rescue a damsel in distress. Once you're at the top, you might be able to catch a glimpse of... More

First time i went up here in 2009 it was a lovely Summer day & you could see quite far (although nothing particularly important to see!) + it was cheaper than it is now! Now it's 50rmb and the fog can be relentless - day after day. I was there for Chinese New Year and could not even see the... More

Nice panoramic view of Tianjin. Make sure it's a clear day out though or you'll be wasting your time and money.

I found the tower very disappointing. When I parted with my 50元 for the entry ticket, which could get you entry into some of the bigger beijing attractions, I expected a lot more. If you have to go, your visit will be wasted if its not a clear day. Tianjin is foggy for the most part so timing is important.... More

If you want to see something amazing, go to the TV tower. You can have a beer while you are looking to the amazing Tianjin. After that, I felt in love MORE with Tj.

Provided you have blue sky in Tianjin (seldom) it is worth to go on top of the TV Tower. From here you have a good overview of the city. A high speed elevator will bring you to the top.

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.
