Located high atop Taiping Hill in Zhongshan Park, this stretch of metal is the largest steel tower in China, extending 116 meters into the sky. A massive emerald green ball, the towers most noted feature, makes the structure resemble one of those lame rocket ships used in space movies from the 1950s. Visitors can ride an elevator (52 seconds) into the ball and enjoy spectacular views, shop for souvenirs or enjoy a drink in something called a "relaxation bar." Park admission: CNY5. There may be an additional fee to enter the tower.
