Yes, you get a good view, but it is not the best place to get a good view from, and it is not especially cheap. Have a drink at the top of the Tangla hotel if you want a view.

Its good, but was not as i had expected!! You can see entire Tianjin from it.. A bit disappointed because of i wanted a little thrill.. You have to share ur compartment with strangers who usually don't speak english..

If you want to see the city this is a great viewing place. Also part of seeing Tianjin I took the boat there which was also nice. A good combination

Filled to the brim with matching couple, wearing couple t'shirts. not that I don't mind but, in the compartment, my friends and i had to witness couples having an moment together, which was pretty awkward. Too many people go there so you have to share your compartment.

Must get into this wheel, you can see the entire city.... The place is so crowded. But don't go back... Must get into that and feel the energy of tianjin. The place is very attractive in evening. You can see the entire city filled with lights.

The Ferris Wheel is definitely among one of its kind being built in the middle of a bridge. Since its very tall, offers a very good view of Tianjin. However, be prepared to face a long wait as its very popular with tourists. Strongly recommended!

I enjoyed our spin around the giant slow moving wheel. It was a lot larger than it appeared and we soared above the nearby buildings. Be prepared to share the car with other people...we lucked out and had a tame group but it is the luck of the draw and with crying kids in the line behind me, I was... More

The atmosphere around the eye is great, plenty to see and do (even late at night on a weekday). The eye itself was a good experience, however visibility from inside the carriage is not the best. We also did the river cruise on the same night and much preferred this.

This is a great thing to do either in the evening, when you get to see the city lit up, or on a clear day when you can see a bit further. We tried to get on it several times over the course of a few weeks (we live just around the corner) but queues were always too big. One... More

I lived in front of it for one year and felt in love with it. The view was amazing. The colors, the atmosphere. I loved it.
