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.

Queued for half an hour, and the ride took another half. Full of beautiful lights during the night. Overall view from top is nice but not much things to see. But my daughter loves it.

The Eye is one of Tianjin's most popular tourist attractions. It offers nice views of the city from above. We originally planned to go at night, but when we got there the line was ridiculously long (it was the weekend of Tomb Sweeping/Qingming Festival). Instead, we went back the next morning. We waited in line for about an hour, and... More

It was a cool thing to do. It takes about a half hour to go all the way around. The price was ok. We went in the evening when there was a lot of people. So we had to wait in line for a long time. (Good thing they had music videos playing in line) The view was pretty great... More

Was expecting something more for this attraction. We bought our tickets RMB70 each and waited in line for less than 5 minutes before getting into the capsule. It was very small and had barely any ventilation. There were a total of 7 people in the small capsule. The weather was very misty and there is almost no view to look... More

I went with friends just to see the view from the top of the wheel, its pretty good although some buildings were not visible wither construction or clouds. It is relatively expensive compared with other attractions in Tianjin. But worth visiting.
