It was a nice experience, quite far from the touristic area but it worths the night visit, a symbol of a growing China reachable via underground or faster via taxi.

Just like everywhere else in China, there are hoards of people even if you get there well ahead of time. The prices are ridiculously expensive. Its better to go on Shanghai tower, don't bother with this one.

Incredibly well laid out and operated! Management deserves Kudo's for finding lots of points of engagement! Great views! The drop ride is exhilarating and the cars that circle the top are really good. Definitely worth a visit!
