I love tall buildings and getting a bird's eye view of the city is one of my favorite ways of seeing a new city. But I wasn't so happy with the CCTV tower (don't confuse this with the new CCTV Headquarters building which is on the opposite end of the city). We went at night (ticket counter is open till 10 pm) and paid 70 RMB per person. The entrance is pretty nice with a park full tyre shaped structures with some chinese writing on it. After going thru security, you get to the top smoothly in good time. It was nice but really windy at the ring-shaped open air viewing platform. But sadly, we couldn't see much at all through the smog. There is a revolving restaurant (at 221 m, it is the highest and hence very expensive too), and a TV cultural hall. On a clear night, this would have been greatand you could see all the magnificent structures in beijing- but do not waste your money on a hazy night!
