It's there that's about all I can say of the tower. It's not in good condition, not very well kept. At night, the Christmasesque lights around it make it photo worthy. The shopping street is pretty fun, but I would not go out of my way to see the tower, personally.

Erqi Strike Monument Tower is a sign building of Zhengzhou. There are telescopes on the top. What attract tourists most is commercial malls in the neighborhood.

By comparison, I guess the Erqi monument is not too striking now. The story behind this though, was that when it was built, the twin towers were the tallest monuments in the area. Right now, they are rather dwarved by the surrounding shopping malls. Good to see for 5 minutes and better if you know about this back story. Otherwise,... More

The tower is located in part of a large pedestrian plaza area with many shops and restaurants (MacDonalds etc too). The tower itself is a useful landmark to help find your way back to the hotel

Right at the heart of the city with a huge open space around and a mix of modern shops and showrooms to street food to all kinds of activities and people around. A perfect place to hang out if one wants to meet new people and see the zhengzhou life. The tower is the main attraction and everything is around... More

Zhengzhou is more a business destination than a tourist stop.. However most tourists use it as a gateway to attractions in nearby province or city with no international airport. Erqi tower is located right in the city centre and is only one stop away on the subway from the busy Zhengzhou railway station. It is but only a monument to... More

Zhengzhou itself is not the best place to go in China. The Henan Province capital seems to be undergoing vast changes, much like the rest of the country, but on a scale I have rarely seen so far (after 8 years living here). In addition to that, there is not a lot of things to see in the way of... More

it does look like a normal pagoda in the middle of the square. it certainly has more cultural/historical appeal to chinese nationals recalling to an important page of chinese modern history

Middle of the city - not particularly amazing, its just a tower in the middle of the square. Easy to find just come out of the local subway station
