Reviews from trip adviosr:
We could see very little from the top.
I would give this one a pass. We visited on a clear day, but, whether because of the pollution or some other factor, could see very little. It was also quite pricey, at 150 RMB for an adult ticket. My kids did like the small dinosaur display on the second floor.
Great view of City of Harbin!
The visit to Longta Tower was our first stop. Very nice tower with many viewing platforms. If you have been to Eiffel Tower then this may not be so spectacular. But it is the tallest tower in Asia. One word of advice, consider joining a 1 day tour because traffic is very bad due to pure number of cars and also the road conditions. Taxis were also not so easy to catch... so if you go in the winter, join a tour, wasting time in the cold waiting for a taxi is not fun. Enjoy your trip!
