The tower is good to look at from the outside, but you have to pay an entrance fee even if you want to walk around the outside.

I recommend going to the other side of the river to take a look of the sight. You can get a nice view and the area over there is quite charming - bars, restaurants, shopping malls, etc.

I enjoyed the canton tower. It's expensive and super touristy but for good reason. You can't beat that view.

We did the most expensive tour and i must admit, it's real expensive. but seeing the view from the top level was really worth it. the views on the lower levels is very nice too but make sure to have a clear view without the thick glass between you and the city.
