The CCTV Tower in BeiJing 北京

With two observation levels and a revolving restaurant.

A good time to visit is late afternoon, allowing you to view Beijing both in the day and night. Choose a clear day and note that it can be chilly at that height, especially if it is windy (though the second observation level is indoors).

Nearest subway station : GongZhuFen (line 1). On exit, walk north along the third ring for about 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, arrive at the Military Museum station (also line 1) and head north into YuYuanTan Park, then head westwards around the lake to the tower, which will be clearly visible.

The CCTV Broadcasting Tower, Beijing

The CCTV Broadcasting Tower is called ZhongYang DianShiTa in Chinese.

It is located on the west side of the western third ring road; YuYuanTan Park with its large lakes is on the east side. The TV Tower can be reached by a 10-15 minute walk north from GongZhuFen subway station on Line 1.

Visitors are swiftly wisked by elevator up to a high viewing platform that gives great views of the city. The platform is 250m (815 ft) high (the tip of the antenna is 405m high).

From the viewing platform you can clearly see the Western Hills, the Summer Palace, the white Dagoba in Beihai Park, and make out the location of Tian'AnMen Square and the Forbidden City. Actually, there are three levels for viewing: one in open air, one inside and another that is a slowly revolving restaurant.

Choose a day when the air is particularly clear. A good time to go is late afternoon, an hour before sunset, so that you can see the city both in daylight and lit up at night.
