The tower is pretty cool, but I'm affraid the view will not be that spectacular most of the time, but when it's clear you'll easily see the mountains around Beijing.

By then will have different price ranges for entering different mushroom tops I'd presume. And I wonder if there would be anyone that is willing to visit all five of them even if it had so called "five-mushroom-combo" discount.

I'm going to Beijing this weekend for Beijing Marathon 2014. Hope this tower can give me some spiritual power during the last couple of kms.

That picture is so amazing. The lighting and building generally looks so futuristic.
