The wheel straddles the river. It has some small Chinese style cafes nearby for tea.

The wheel itself is like any other wheel in the world. If you fancy them you will have a decent time. (40 mins per revolution)

Northern China is known for its thick pollution and poor visibilities. To have a landmark based on seeing something in the distance in China is an oxymoron. Routinely the visibility is only 2000 meters and unless you are just in it for the ride you are not going to see much. At night it may be romantic to see the glow of the lights from the eye but the daytime would leave much to be desired even if you could see outside. Tianjin is a growing industrial city and not the landmark dense Beijing.

For the wheel/eye enthusiast only.

Took it during twilight, you get the bright and night views that way, as each revolution lasts a good forty minutes.

Been to too many such wheels so it didn't impress me too much with its facilities. Having said that, the view is indeed brilliant.
