wonderful Tianjin night view

It's quite pricey for me, and we have to wait for some time. But the view is so wonderful, it's worth it...you can see the river and city lights.. very lovely...

This is one of the more notable attractions seen in tourist pictures of Tianjin. Although we don't regret trying it, we have not taken any of our visitors to go as we found it was a bit overpriced. The views are average as there is not much to see aside from the city lights along the river, and these can... More

The best time to go is by the end of the day so that you can watch the sunset. Avoid polluted weather as you wont be able to see everything clearly. Avoid weekends or you will be stuck there for a very long time to get the tickets.

Well worth an hour or so of your time. Nice and relaxing. Went in December when the place was empty but can imagine it would get busy in the summer months.

The scenery is gorgeous and a walk along the river with the ferris wheel in the background is hard to beat, however if you want to go on the ferris wheel be prepared to queue for at least 2 hours

Perfect place to go with family and friends. With you want to ride by Wheel you have to pay some 70 RMB and te road during 35 minutes. There is possible to see a lot of great thinks by Tianjing

This tourist spot is over-hyped. I did not enjoy the view from the top at all. Infact the view from the bottom, near the river is more beautiful. The staff is also very rude. They force people to take the ride when it is not yet dark. They won't tell you the timings for tickets for evening rides (post sunset).

I've liked my visit to the Eye of Tianjin, but the 70 RMB fee was too high for what it had to offer. The view from the wheel is quite good, but on a hot summer day, there the smog will make it harder to see all the buildings. The view without smog must be amazing though. Also, the cabins... More

Takes about 40 minutes for the ride. It is a very smooth ride and gives you a good view of the river and city.
