If you're a fan of heights and lucky enough to chance upon a sunny, relatively day, head up the Tianjin Radio and TV Tower to enjoy a 360-degree view of the city. Peer down at the surrounding lake area and try to spot other Tianjin attractions, such as the Olympic Parks.
Be forewarned, though: Refreshments at the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower are pricy and are not recommended.
To get to the tower, you can take metro line 3 to Tian Ta Station, or hop on the no. 8 or no. 643 bus.
