Enjoyed my visit and does offer great views of the city but on the day i visited it was very misty and not much to see ? none the less if you have time worth a visit.

had a really great 4 hours here. i bought the package ticket .. about CNY220, which included the space capsule (the highest 'ball' on the tower), the glass walk and the museum which was fantastic. i dont really recommend the extra 70 yuan for the rollercoaster as it's over within 30 seconds and while its awesome, just not long enough.

Interesting building looks OK from a distance but when you get close you can appreciate how huge it is. The lines can be long so try to buy tickets on line in advance. The observation deck is cook and has a huge glass floor section very cool.

It is nice to take the promenade on the opposite side of the river and to see the nice light show the tower offers along with the other buildings. Be reminded all lights are of at 10:00 pm. So be there before that.
