Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: If you don't want to pay ¥150 to go to the top of the TV tower, on the 70th floor of the nearby IFC building is a Four Seasons hotel. It's actually higher than the TV tower and provides amazing views of the city. You can go up there and take some photos of the city for free, or if you want to admire the view for longer, a cup of tea in the hotel restaurant will cost you about ¥50.

Liked: A good diversity of places to eat compared to other cities in China. Extensive public transport. Lots to do and see.

Disliked: It was very hot at this time of year.
