Can't really get close to this building. Good for a photo or a selfie. Can't choose if it's ugly or creative. Exit C of metro

I love seeing buildings with unique architecture, and the CCTV building defiinitely fits the bill. If you see it from the right angle, it looks like it should absolutely be falling over. I'm not sure if you can go inside, but it was just cool...More

Closed to the public. You can't get in. The guards would not let me in. There is no observation deck. I tried to get in on both sides of the building and circled the building even which is almost 2 miles. Don't waste your time.

It was difficult to get there by metro. Located near the 3rd Ring Road there is not much to see under the tower at night - the lit up builings are few kms far. So you need low level of smog, of course.

The Antenna gives great views in pollution free weather. The rotating restaurant is 300RMB for a meal. The Observatory just over 100RMB. There is a cheesy TV studio mock up up the tower, and some over tit tat nick nack shops on the ground floor...More
