  • Western third is nearly located on ring road, Beijing's tallest building. You can see even from a distance on sunny days, but look in the air in recent years is hard. These instructions have a taxi quick? Off to quite a walk to the elevator. View from the observation deck is quite spectacular! You can see up to Badaling in the sunny day, winter is NG. Let's clear the air after a rain in the spring or fall day.

  • The view from the restaurant which turns and got the option of a panoramic image as you enjoy your meal!! If and cost a little expensive I think is an experience that is not easy to live

  • Unfortunately, on the observation deck, we get failed, but while we walked to the Great Tower, we got a lot of emotions. Next to it are other skyscrapers and after "sleeping" area in which we lived, it seems that you got a completely different city. See even just very interesting to contrast after the other historic sights of Beijing.
